What to Expect When Seeking Treatment

Skip to main content

Patients who enter treatment will work with clinical staff who will:

  • Develop and assess the patient’s treatment goals.
  • Prepare the patient to cope with things that may “trigger” them to use.
  • Help the patient plan for what happens after treatment ends.
  • Offer Medications for Addiction Treatment, if appropriate.
  • Deliver additional services for patients who are youth, young adults, or women who are pregnant or parenting.
  • Support patients after they have completed treatment.
