Chemical Dependency Evaluation = This is a diagnostic evaluation to determine whether a person suffers from an alcohol, drug, or gambling dependency. During the course of the evaluation, the evaluator will gather information from the person and collateral sources such as loved ones about his/her past and current substance use/gambling and how it has affected his/her life. The purpose of the evaluation is to determine the severity of the addiction based on symptoms and longevity of symptoms. This in turn will determine the best interventions needed.

MRT = (Moral Re-conation Therapy) is a program to help clients reduce the likelihood of rearrests and re-incarceration by helping them avoid and stay away from illegal activity and problems in the future by redirecting their life through MRT and to help them realize that you can be a product of your past without being a victim of it. Conation refers to the mind, body, and spirit joining to drive decisions and re-conation means changing the way you make decisions.

CBISA IOP Treatment Program = The CBISA program curriculum was developed by the University of Cincinnati Corrections Institute and refers to the legal effects of substance abuse. The use of the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a behavioral theory that suggests that behavior can be conditioned or learned just as the actions are repeatedly performed become habits, so do repeated thoughts become habitual. An important goal of the group process is to help show how risky behaviors have influenced people’s lives in fact choices about use can be changed. The CBT framework is designed to help gain control over drugs, alcohol, cope with cravings, and manage thoughts about the use of substances. The client has various options for meeting times, and days that provides flexibility to meet the needs of the many clients who are referred to the CBISA Program.
