Addictions Services

At Menninger, roughly 65 percent of patients have an addiction or substance abuse issue in addition to their primary psychiatric diagnoses. For these patients, the treatment teams and their addictions counselors integrate treatment for the co-occurring disorders simultaneously rather than treating the disorders sequentially.
 
Our master's-prepared addictions counselors are an integral part each program’s interdisciplinary treatment team. They help develop individualized treatment plans and counsel adolescents and adults with co-occurring disorders, following patients from assessment through discharge planning for substance-related, gambling, sexual, spending, technology and other addictions. They:
  • Provide quality addictions treatment
  • Provide treatment based on evidenced-based methods in areas of motivation, recovery planning, relapse prevention, neuroscience and family dynamics
  • Provide patients with a treatment model that will effectively promote acceptance of their disease, teach ways to make changes and foster recovery
  • Tailor treatment to the individual based on the National Institute of Drug Abuse belief that addiction is a complex yet treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior
  • Ensure that assessment and treatment respects the unique culture of each patient
  • Guide the patient's selection of a support group (AA, NA, SAA, GA, SMART and others

Engaging in Recovery

We use cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, mentalization-based therapy and neuroscience education to engage the patient in the recovery process. Individual addiction counseling, group therapy, group psychoeducation and wellness activities contribute to the recovery process. The framework for recovery also includes:
  • Addiction recovery groups (relapse prevention, stimuli awareness, step work, pain of addiction and recovery planning groups)
  • Relapse education
  • Discharge planning
  • Assessment and treatment for cross-addictions
  • Sexual health education
  • Motivational-enhancement therapy
  • Expressive therapies (music, art and others)
  • Family education and therapy
  • Medication education and therapy
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Trauma assessment, education and therapy
