Thresholds provides Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Services that are supported by strong research evidence and provide individuals with the option to stay engaged with their families and professions.
Thresholds provides integrated treatment using evidence-supported practices, including and medication-assisted treatment.
All clients initially participate in an admission assessment to determine their level of care and treatment needs. A treatment plan is collaboratively developed and tailored to meet each individual’s situation and treatment preferences.
Thresholds offers an array of group and individual counseling services, including therapy, recovery coaching, case management, family/couples counseling, and medication-assisted treatment. The type, frequency, and duration of services is based on individual needs and preferences. DUI services are also available, including updated evaluation, counseling, treatment, and education.
Staff will review the service fee schedule prior to the beginning of intake into treatment services. Staff will need full insurance information in order to provide the most accurate estimate of fees due, if any.
Most treatment services are covered by Medicaid, Medicare, or private insurance. Discounted fees are available for clients who qualify. We accept all clients regardless of ability to pay.
Outpatient Services may be entered directly after the admission assessment for individuals who require and/or prefer less intensive services; or as a “step-down,” following completion of Intensive Outpatient Services. Clients can access the array of services listed above from 0.5 to 8.5 hours each week.
Intensive Outpatient Services includes the array of services listed above for at least 9 hours each week. Clients will typically engage in Intensive Outpatient for 2-8 weeks before “stepping-down” to outpatient services.
Where the admission assessment indicates a need for a level of care that is not offered by Thresholds, an appropriate referral will be made.
Our community-based services help people access recovery services while continuing to live in their communities, so that they can effectively address the challenges they face in their immediate life situations.
Thresholds recognizes that individuals are unique in terms of their needs, preferences, and readiness to change. This requires a person-centered approach where diversity and autonomy are respected. We ultimately seek to partner with each client in their personal path towards a more fulfilling life.
Thresholds understands those it serves are whole persons. Substance use problems do not occur and should not be treated in isolation, but rather as part of a holistic range of bio-psychosocial concerns:
