We’re DEEP-certified by Maine’s Office of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services. This certification allows us to provide the evaluation or treatment required by the state of Maine through the Completion of Treatment Program as described by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services pages at www.maine.gov.
Driver Education & Evaluation Program
The Driver Education and Evaluation Programs (DEEP) are Maine’s mandated Operating Under the Influence (OUI) countermeasure program. The program aims to reduce the incidence of injury, disability, and fatality that results from alcohol and other drug-related motor vehicle crashes and reduce the risk of re-offense for OUI.
Completion of Treatment Program
The Completion of Treatment Program is a treatment option for offenders who acknowledge the extent of their substance abuse problem. These individuals are willing to seek continued voluntary participation in treatment. In addition, they demonstrate the ability to abstain from using substances and wish to enter directly into treatment for an alcohol or drug problem.
When you’re ready to get your life back, we’ll help you create the perfect recovery plan. We offer individual and group counseling services tailored towards meeting your needs, whether substance-related or not. In addition, we provide various services to clients in treatment for substance use disorders, including assessment, treatment planning, and counseling using a variety of therapies.
Individual counseling is a great way to get the personalized attention you need. These sessions often focus on reducing or stopping substance use, skill building for success, and implementing recovery plans. We’ll also help you discover tools for creating positive social, family, educational, and professional outcomes.
Group counseling is often used in addition to individual counseling to provide social reinforcement for the pursuit of recovery. It can be a powerful tool in the recovery process because it helps patients feel like they are not alone and that someone understands what it’s like on their journey. In addition, group members offer support and encouragement, which can help you stay motivated and focused on your recovery.
Co-dependency is like an addiction. It’s one of the most common relationship patterns in society today, and it can have lasting effects on our mental health if left unchecked. Co-dependency refers specifically to a pattern of behavior where one person takes on responsibility for meeting the needs and feelings of another, to the exclusion or denial of themselves.
Recognizing a Co-Dependent Relationship
The key to overcoming co-dependent tendencies is self-awareness. Counseling can help you unravel your co-dependent patterns and create healthier, happier relationships with yourself and those around you. By acknowledging your emotions and feelings, you can become more aware of how co-dependence may have developed.
Learning to Put Yourself and Your Needs First
Co-dependency comes in many forms with varying levels of severity, but at its core is a lack of self-esteem and boundaries. By building your sense of worthiness and learning to set healthy boundaries, you’ll find the strength to deal with any outside pressure from others and break free from your co-dependent habits.
