Substance Abuse

At Kimball Health Services, we understand the unique challenges people face when dealing with substance abuse. Our mental health services are designed to provide comprehensive support to put you on a path to renewed confidence and recovery.

Our team understands that each person's struggle with substance abuse is unique and influenced by factors such as personal history, mental health, and external circumstances. Our services guide patients in identifying a substance abuse issue and assisting them in obtaining placement in an outpatient or inpatient program.

What is Substance Abuse?

Substance abuse refers to the harmful use of psychoactive substances, including alcohol and illicit drugs. It involves the repeated and excessive consumption of these substances, often leading to addiction and adverse physical, mental, and social consequences.

Substance abuse can manifest in various ways, such as:

  • Misuse of prescription medications
  • Excessive consumption of alcohol
  • Illicit use of substances like cocaine, heroin, or methamphetamine

The key elements of substance abuse include:

  • Consuming substances in a way that is detrimental to your physical or mental health
  • Developing an addiction to the substance that makes it difficult to control its use and triggers withdrawal symptoms when avoiding its use
  • Exhibiting impaired judgment, strained relationships, legal issues, and health problems

Our Approach to Substance Abuse

Addressing substance abuse typically involves a combination of medical, psychological, and social interventions tailored to the patient’s specific needs. Early intervention and comprehensive treatment approaches are essential for promoting recovery and preventing further harm.

Substance abuse affects every facet of a patient’s life, and our approach ensures that no aspect goes unaddressed. We tailor treatment plans to address the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of the condition, recognizing that each patient’s journey is their own.

Thorough Assessment

At Kimball Health Services, the path to recovery begins with a thorough assessment. This process is more than marking things off a checklist. We use in-depth conversations, behavioral observations, and a thorough examination of a patient’s personal history to better understand the factors contributing to substance use.

Our process ensures a personalized approach, guiding patients toward the most appropriate level of care. 

Referrals for Inpatient Treatment

In situations where the challenges of substance abuse demand a higher level of care, we offer referrals for inpatient treatment, providing intensive 24x7 care. 

This is useful for patients who need heightened support in a nurturing environment, ensuring a focused and structured approach to address the complex issues associated with substance abuse.

Referrals for Outpatient Treatment

In cases where patients must continue participation in work, education, or family life, we also offer referrals for intensive outpatient treatment options. This option allows patients to engage in a structured recovery program while still meeting the demands of their everyday responsibilities.

Collaborative Process

Our assessment for substance abuse is more than a diagnostic tool; it's a collaborative process involving you and your support system. Families play a vital role in the recovery journey, and we actively engage them in the assessment and recovery process. 

Aftercare Planning

Transitioning from formal treatment to everyday life is a critical phase, and we offer aftercare plans designed to provide ongoing support. This may involve continued therapy, support groups, vocational assistance, and other resources tailored to the patient’s needs.
