Counseling Sessions

Get back on track

During the first 90 days of the client’s treatment, they will meet with a case manager for 14 days to establish a maintenance level of methadone and to get any resources they may need for additional needs. After 14 days they will meet with their counselor once a week. After 90 days, clients see them once a month for an individual session and when needed.
