Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance Abuse Treatment Services include assessments, group therapy, and limited individual therapy. We offer gender specific treatment groups and individual services plans for those with co-occurring disorders. Breathalyzer testing and urine drug screens are a required part of our treatment program. Referrals and admission to inpatient detoxification and/or rehabilitation facilities can be provided based on individual need. Aftercare is provided, including for those who might initiate their own in-patient treatment.

Substance Abuse Case Management Services

Rockbridge Area Community Services (RACS) is now offering substance abuse case management services for men and women with substance use issues. Women with substance abuse issues who are pregnant will be offered a general intake appointment within 48 hours of their request. Women with dependent children will be offered an intake appointment within seven days of their initial request. Priority consideration is also given to men and women who are IV drug users.

SA Case Management services will be started as soon as possible following this initial intake, and a face to face appointment with an SA Case Manager will typically be offered within two business days following the initial intake. The goal of SA Case Management Services is to provide the necessary coordination of care and to link with appropriate services in the community. In addition to linking with appropriate substance abuse services, assistance is provided with referrals for services such as: prenatal screening, physical exam, nutritional counseling, child care, pediatric services for children (which includes immunizations), developmental assessments for children, vision and dental screening, parent education, therapeutic services for children, and transportation.
