Medication Assisted Treatment

We offer a one day Alcohol and Highway Safety Class. This class is designed to meet court requirements for individuals who have been mandated to an alcohol education experience after incurring an OUIL (Operating Under the Influence of Liquor) or other alcohol related offense. This one day comprehensive course covers numerous topics related to the consequences of drinking and driving. Participants also learn the negative implications on their bodies from alcohol and other drug usage. In addition, learners will gain a better understanding of the process as it relates to addiction -- the progression from alcohol use to alcohol abuse and addiction. Participants watch informational DVD’s providing real-life stories related to the tragedies which may occur when people drink and drive. Participants also gain an increase in awareness of the added legal, social and family complications caused by drinking and driving or alcohol and drug addiction.

Finally, participants leave with a better understanding of the dangers of drinking and driving and are better equipped with information to help them make better decisions in the future.

Assessments

We have Master’s level trained counselors assessing our clients’ and potential clients’, whether they are adolescents or adults to determine the potential need for substance abuse treatment and/or other services.

During the assessment we process data including gathering background information and history from the individual to support the best service(s) suited to fit our clients’ needs and base our recommendations on this information. In addition, we utilize the Multi-Dimensional Addiction and Personality Profile (MAPP) screening tool to assist in verifying and supporting the treatment or service(s) our staff has recommended. MAPP is used to measure substance abuse and personal adjustment issues related to the last six months of an individual’s life. Referrals for assessments come from various sources - including the following: other community agencies, medical providers, Medicaid (Venture Behavioral Health), the court system and naturally we accept self referrals. Once the assessment process is completed and a recommendation has been made, the Eastside Outpatient Services’ staff is diligent in coordinating with the original referral source to ensure the treatment services are accurate and secure.

Our counseling staff also has the ability to generate numerous types of reports detailing the information gained from the assessment and the format chosen may be based on the need of the referral source.

Drug Testing

In Today’s society drug and alcohol abuse is common. It is a widespread social problem within all communities and yet is difficult to combat for numerous reasons. Unfortunately, these problems are far reaching and long lasting. For employers, drug testing is an effective means to educate and to uncover illegal, personally-damaging drug use amongst employees and members of the community. Drug testing is necessary to help prevent drug usage from spiraling out of control. Since drug-usage allegations are serious in nature, it is imperative to utilize accurate drug testing services which can supply authoritative results.

If you have a drug policy in place stating; “Employees must submit to drug testing requests,” you have the ability to take advantage of our services for efficient, confidential and professional results. For those undergoing our treatment services, testing is an important part of treatment. When counseling a patient suffering from addiction it is crucial for us to be aware if the patient is currently under the influence of drugs during the course of treatment. All test results will remain confidential unless the patient consents otherwise.

Our counseling staff also has the ability to generate numerous types of reports detailing the information gained from the assessment and the format chosen may be based on the need of the referral source.
