Adult Services

Higher Ground offers holistic treatment programs for adults 18 and older in a safe, comfortable, relaxed environment. These programs blend traditional treatment with motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy and experiential, skill-building approaches to help adults find hope and success in their struggle with substance abuse and addiction. At Higher Ground, treatment works. Come to Higher Ground for support, understanding, respect, and confidentiality.

Our services for adults include:


A licensed addiction counselor meets with each person to administer a comprehensive assessment based upon nationally accepted criteria. The counselor will then use the results to make recommendations. All information is confidential. Higher Ground offers assessments on a walk-in basis, 3 days a week, at 9:00 am. Evening appointments are offered under limited circumstances. Please contact Higher Ground for detailed assessment information.

Outpatient Treatment

Individualized treatment through ongoing assessment, treatment planning, group and individual counseling, educational sessions, and relapse prevention planning are available in an outpatient setting. Our clinical team, including a clinical coordinator, licensed addiction counselors, and Master's-level social workers, works together to tailor a treatment plan to the specific needs of each participant. From the first day of treatment, participants begin to receive the encouragement, tools, and life skills necessary to maintain abstinence.

Relapse Prevention

Higher Ground provides each participant with a unique array of tools for relapse prevention. This "toolbox" consists of activities and simple techniques that help individuals release emotional tension and recognize their own destructive addiction patterns as they arise. It also includes methods to spot and handle stressful situations that may otherwise contribute to relapse. Participants gain new awareness and strength to turn away from substances and maintain an addiction-free lifestyle.

Family Services

Chemical dependency is a family illness, and all members of the addicted person's family are affected. Higher Ground believes that support of both the treatment participant and the family are essential to the healing process. Family recovery is promoted through family education and counseling. Family involvement is advised and encouraged as a vital part of the treatment process.
