Adult program participants are enrolled in the program for a minimum of twelve (12) weeks, depending on the individual needs and the referring agency. Participants have an initial screening either over the phone or in person to determine if they are appropriate for services. While a client at NCADD, a complete assessment is done, a treatment plane is created and participants are placed in groups that will most benefit. The participant will be assigned a case manager, which will meet regularly in helping the client meet goals and objectives while maintaining sobriety.
The adult participant is required to attend (2) twice-weekly meeting schedule. We provide education, awareness, prevention, focus and discussion groups. Monthly evaluations and progress reports are available to be sent to the referring agency as requested by participant.
