State Certified Program for Substance Abuse
We can help. Recovering from drug and alcohol abuse starts with a heartfelt desire to regain your life. It finds success with experienced treatment and committed support.
Family Life Center’s outpatient treatment is for individuals whose lives have been impacted by use of alcohol and other drugs, and who have been assessed for outpatient treatment. We utilize evidence-based treatment approaches that have been proven over the years to be effective.
A recent study conducted by Texas Christian University identified two strong predictors for substance abuse treatment success:
- The first predictor is the counselor’s connection with the client
- The second is a strong educational component for the program
At Family Life Center, we focus on these predictors to provide the strongest possible strategy for success.
Each counselor is hired based on their demonstrated ability to connect with clients, communicate effectively, and support individual goals for recovery. Counselors employed at Family Life Center have all earned the appropriate certification or licensure and have the educational background required by the Alabama Department of Mental Health.
When a client is referred to Family Life Center, a counselor conducts a comprehensive assessment using the DMH placement assessment to determine the appropriate treatment placement and severity of addiction. An individual treatment plan is derived from the assessment and clients are continuously assessed during treatment to determine if progress is being made or adjustments are necessary.
We believe that if we have helped our clients improve their lives without the use of alcohol and other drugs, we have achieved our goal.
