Our Inpatient Programs
MCCA offers outpatient treatment services through individual, group and family therapy. Clients are able to participate in a variety of programs such as intensive outpatient, relapse prevention, early intervention, women’s and men’s services and Latino outpatient. Through these supportive therapies clients are able to recognize triggers and destructive behavior and begin to create the positive changes leading to the well-being created by a healthier lifestyle.
Family education and therapy is also available and covers the many issues family members must cope with when dealing with a family member suffering from an addiction or mental illness.
At MCCA we believe that alcoholism and drug addiction are treatable illnesses and that those effected, including family members, can recover. Our treatment philosophy is goal-oriented for the entire continuum of services from interventions through relapse prevention. All of MCCA’s programs are targeted to produce positive outcomes for the identified patient and family member.
