The Outpatient Clinic is licensed by Department
of Public Health as both a substance abuse and mental health clinic. The
clinicians in the outpatient department specialize in treating individuals who
are dually diagnosed both with a substance abuse and mental health diagnosis.
Therapy occurs individually and in a group setting by clinicians who are
very experienced in their field, many who are licensed drug and alcohol
counselors. Current groups offered include a Men in Recovery group and a
Women in Recovery group that meet weekly, as well as an Early Recovery group
that meets twice per week. Additionally, LHATR offers substance abuse
evaluations, conducted by licensed or specialized clinicians to assist in
determining whether a substance abuse problem exists and identifying the
correct level of treatment. Intakes or evaluations are made by appointment.
Clinic Hours are 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM Monday through Thursday, Friday 9:00 AM to
4:00 PM, Saturday 9:00 AM to Noon
