ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTERS IN BEAVERTON, OREGON

The NSDUH or the National Survey on Drug Use and Health offers estimates that measure the SPD and the MDE (serious psychological distress and the major depressive episode) of the population. The reports show that in case of Oregon State, including Beaverton, OR, the rates on both these measures were among the highest in the country during 2005 to 2006, among the population aged 18 years to 25 years. More than 20% of the people belonging to this age group had experienced SPD and more than 10% had experienced a MDE in the studied year. These are measured in order to identify the seriousness of drug and alcohol problems and their psychological and physical effects on the population.

What types of services do you offer?

I provide private therapy for individuals, couples (marital, pre-marital, engagement/pre- engagement, general relational), and families. I also provide alcohol and drug evaluations for court-mandated or job-related purposes, as well as mental health assessments.

What issues do you specify treatment for?

I provide treatment for many issues including anxiety, depression, addictions, trauma and PTSD, life stress or transitions, spirituality, anger management, relationship conflicts, self- esteem, and many others.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

I utilize a couple of therapy modalities. Contextual therapy allows me to look at issues and situations from various perspectives to gain a better understanding of what is going on. I also utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy to identify unhealthy thought and feeling patterns that can be adjusted to change behavior and develop healthier coping skills for difficult situations.

When should one seek treatment?

It is best to seek treatment as soon as you realize there are problems that are negatively affecting your life or your relationships, so that you can treat them early on. Waiting to treat problems can result in increased severity and difficulty in being able to resolve them effectively. However, it is never too late to seek help! Regardless of your situation, if you are willing to do the work, I can help you and we can see good progress together.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

Someone should come to my practice because I am a thoughtful, caring, and skilled therapist. I believe in the work I do to help people and genuinely enjoy collaborating with them to improve the difficulties in their lives. I have the skills to guide people effectively into healing and growth, and provide hope even in the midst of very challenging situations.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

The relationship between mental health and substance abuse is real and complex. Often times the two work together, exacerbating each other, making it difficult to deal with either issue. For example, many people develop mental health issues as a result of dysfunctional or damaging family systems in childhood and “self-medicate” through experimenting with substance use. It’s often intended as a short-term escape or relief from real emotional or relational pain, but can develop into abuse or dependence. When this happens, substance abuse and mental health become intertwined and interdependent. When dealing with dual diagnosis clients (people with both mental health and substance abuse issues), I work on treating the addiction first and then focus on the underlying reasons. It is important to be sober and develop healthy coping skills in order to be able to face the deeper issues without returning to substance use.

What types of services do you offer?

We offer all services for youth and adults from 0.5 to 2.1 levels of care.

We offer evaluation services for individuals with most major insurance coverage. We also offer evaluations at reasonable cash pay rates. We offer individual and family sessions as part of our program design. After the evaluation, we make recommendations based on DSM-IVtr and ASAM ppc2r. Once the client is evaluated we may offer Information only/Early intervention services Level (0.5) for both adults and youth which means there is probably no DSM-IVtr diagnosis, but they need some preventative intervention to allow them to make better choices down the road. This is most often accomplished in either 8 hours or 12 hours depending on the state they are seeking services in and will be accomplished in either individual sessions or a series of groups. If they meet Abuse criteria they would more than likely be referred to Level 1 Outpatient services. This would consist of (1) to (2) (3 hour) groups per week, with (1) individual session per month, as well as (3) family sessions over a (3) month period. Length of stay would be determined by ASAM ppc2r. If they meet Dependence criteria they would more than likely be referred to Level 2.1 Intensive Outpatient services or Residential (Level III or IV) which we don’t provide. Intensive Outpatient would consist of (3) (3 hour) groups per week, with (2) individual sessions per month, as well as (3) family sessions over a 3 month period. All clients regardless of level of care are expected to attend outside recovery support meetings to build clean and sober support for long term recovery. 

What issues do you specify treatment for?

Substance Abuse and Dependence primarily. However, most folks with these issues also have many co-occurring issues such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, gambling issues, ADHD, and Bi Polar disorder.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

CBT, DBT, REBT, Stages of Change, Motivational Interviewing, Seeking Safety, Matrix, within a Trauma informed perspective. When should one seek treatment? Prior to the substance use causing relationship, employment, or legal issues and while the addiction is causing relationship, employment, or legal issues.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

Because we have knowledgeable and caring staff, who understand addiction and can hold clients and families accountable so that real change can occur. Because we take most major insurance and are preferred providers for most. Because we offer integrated practices so that all MH and Addiction needs can be addressed at the same facility and most often concurrently.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

There is little separation between MH and Addictions issues in this day and age. One disorder may be predominant on any given day, so we are a dual diagnosis capable facility, which means we can offer services concurrently to all clients regardless of their presentation.
