Overcoming substance use disorders — also referred to as chemical dependency, drug or alcohol dependence or drug or alcohol addiction — isn't something you should have to do alone. At MultiCare Behavioral Health, we can help you free yourself from your addiction and make a life-long commitment to recovery and wellness.
The MultiCare Behavioral Health Substance Use Disorder program is one of the largest chemical dependency treatment providers in Pierce County, and have served the community at a certified chemical dependency agency since 2011.
Highlights of our program include:
Treatment is based on our client’s medical necessity. Once, they no longer meet medical necessity and have reached their identified goals they are considered successful.
Services we provide are collaborative, meeting the client where they are and building a treatment plan together which improves the likelihood of success as the client is the expert in their care. Strategies we use to assist clients in meeting these treatment goals are harm reduction and abstinence-based models, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral techniques, mindfulness, art therapy, relapse prevention, substance use disorder education, among other skills.
We offer two levels of outpatient treatment: intensive outpatient and outpatient. If you require inpatient care, we provide you with a referral to an external program. An initial assessment with our substance use disorder professionals will help you to decide which path to treatment is the right one for you.
What to expect in our outpatient program:
It’s common for people who have a substance use disorder to experience physical symptoms when they first quit using (withdrawal). We offer guidance, support and, in some cases, referral to withdrawal management services.
Structure of services and cadence could consist of individual and group sessions one time to multiple times per week.
Voluntary and court-ordered substance use disorder counseling services are also available through our program. Those services include:
