Behavioral Health/Chemical Dependency
Outpatient Chemical Dependency Program
The Silver Cross Hospital Chemical Dependency Services program helps patients begin the recovery process through intensive education, counseling and support. The goal is to promote lifestyle changes supportive of recovery.
Silver Cross Hospital provides intensive, structured chemical dependency treatment services for adults in all stages of addiction. Our licensed and certified professionals help patients overcoming addictions to over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs, alcohol and illicit drugs.
We invite patients, families and referring treatment team members to contribute to developing the individual’s treatment plan. Family members are an important part of our treatment approach.
The program is based on the belief that abuse of drugs including alcohol may produce dysfunction in people’s lives resulting in negative consequences. These consequences may affect the abuser as well as their significant relationships. Persons admitted to the program might be experiencing significant physical, psychological, familial, social, legal, occupational or educational deficits related to their inappropriate use of drugs.
An interdisciplinary treatment team consisting of Certified Addictions Counselors, Registered Nurses, and Social Workers provide services under the direction of a physician. The Chemical Dependency Services program is structured in a way that enables individuals to meet family, work, and other responsibilities of daily living while receiving services.
