Chemical Dependency

Hutchinson Health offers caring and supportive outpatient chemical dependency programs and services.

supportThe Hutchinson Health Chemical Dependency program is an evening program that can offer services to clients who need intensive outpatient care, who need treatment for relapse, or who need “step-down” programming from an inpatient or residential treatment setting.

Clients are expected to attend AA/NA and will be given weekly assignments geared toward 12-steps.

Programs and Services

Chemical Use Assessments

Our Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors (LADC) will complete a comprehensive chemical use assessment. This assessment is a series of questions about personal, family, and chemical use history. The purpose of this assessment is to help track patterns of use and problems associated with use. The LADC will make treatment recommendations based on each client’s history.

Individualized Treatment

The program offers services to clients who need intensive outpatient care, treatment for relapse, or continuing care from an inpatient or residential treatment setting. Treatment includes evening group session and one-to-one counseling.

Client Care Coordination

Our staff will work with clients to coordinate the appropriate course of treatment. This may include a referral to an external facility for treatment or a referral for therapy or psychiatry. Our staff will also work in conjunction with agencies that refer clients to treatment at Hutchinson Health.
