Adult Chemical Dependency Program


The Adult Chemical Dependency Inpatient Program at Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System is highly structured for adults over the age of 18 with a need for supervised detoxification or for a recovery program. The philosophy of the Adult Chemical Dependency Program centers on the Living in Balance Model. This model heavily focuses on relapse prevention and provides numerous opportunties for improvement with daily living skills through extensive group sessions.  Living in Balance helps patients to discover areas of life they have neglected through addiction and gives them the resources to live a sober life.  In addition to Living in Balance, patients attend Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) while in treatment.  They receive a copy of the Big Book and begin to work the 12 steps.  12 step education is provided in groups and individually patients work on each step. 
Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System also provide patients with a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) for Addiction.  The patients develop a plan to use their wellness tools on a daily basis to manage their sobriety and mental health. WRAP aids in discharge planning by giving patients a detailed discharge plan they have created to aid both in their sobriety and to help keep slips from turning into relapses. 

The multidisciplinary treatment team is led by an Addictionologist or Psychiatrist and includes a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, Case Coordinator, Social Worker, Nurse and Activity Therapist. The treatment is individualized and guided by a tailored treatment plan that addresses specific needs.

The Adult Chemical Dependency Program components include:

Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System's Chemical Dependency Program is also designed to treat individuals with co-occurring disorders. Individuals are able to attend group sessions addressing their psychiatric and chemical dependency needs. These needs will also be addressed in individual therapy as well as with the attending physician.

Discharge Planning begins upon admission by the individual's Case Coordinator to develop goals and plans for a transition to a less intensive level of treatment.
