Levels of Care
This level of care is provided for individuals experiencing withdrawal symptoms resulting from extended alcohol and/or other drug use. Individuals are monitored on a 24-hour basis by licensed medical staff. In order to provide a safe and effective detoxification, American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria is used. Once individuals are medically stable they are ready to begin the next phase of treatment.
This level of care consists of 24 hour programming at separate locations for men and women. A holistic-approach to treatment incorporates therapeutic processing and education for the individual and their family. This unique blend of therapy, education, and 12-step support helps the individual change established thinking and behavioral patterns to support long-term abstinence. This level of care is typically 30-42 days, depending on an individual’s specific needs.
Partial Hospitalization (PHP)
This level of care typically follows Residential Treatment and precedes Intensive Outpatient (IOP) programs. Many of our PHP clients have completed Tara’s Detox and Residential Treatment programs – or similar programs elsewhere. Our PHP program can also serve as a barrier reduction option for those individuals needing 24 hour care who do not have a covered residential benefit with their insurance plan. In these situations, Tara can continue to provide and charge for room and board separately.
This program is reserved for individuals who have completed Tara’s Residential Program. This program (only available for males at this time) provides continued support for those who require further stabilization before returning home. Individuals begin to implement a higher level of self-accountability into their recovery as they attend meetings at the facility and participate in a combination of employment, community work, and social networking. Clinical staff meets with each individual to develop a schedule that addresses their specific needs.
We provide Outpatient, Education and Intensive Out Patient (IOP) services – Days are Monday 5:30-7:30, as well as Tuesday and Thursdays 5:30-8:30. Call Allison Buening for more information at:
Individuals within this level of care continue to work on strategies for maintaining the progress that they have gained in other levels of care. Relapse prevention strategies such as early identification of warning signs, coping skills and peer evaluation are addressed. This group meets one time per week.
This eight hour program focuses on gaining a basic understanding of decision making, effects of specific drugs and alcohol and differences between abuse and dependency. This level of care is typically for individuals exhibiting signs of alcohol or drug abuse.
This free program is designed to help significant others and family members understand the disease of addiction and the basic concepts of recovery. The program also assists loved ones in identifying the struggles of the addict or alcoholic, while allowing them to work on their own personal growth. Individuals do not need to have a family member involved in treatment to participate.
To determine the appropriate level of care an assessment is completed utilizing American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria. Once this level is determined an individualized treatment plan is then developed with the client to identify problems and establish objectives to achieve recovery goals.
