Early Intervention Program (EIP):
A Faith-based Early Intervention Program for Adults with Alcohol & Drug Issues
Three Oaks Center, Inc. provides a weekend intervention program for adults with alcohol and drug issues. Whether you have encountered consequences on-the-job and have been referred to a Certified Employee Assistance Professional (CEAP); or have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and have been referred to a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP); have experienced relationship issues and sought help from a faith community leader (i.e. pastor, priest, rabbi, etc.); or have been arrested for one or more of these types of violations – drug abuse, drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence, driving while intoxicated, larceny-thefts, simple assaults, liquor law violations, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, drunkenness, domestic (family) violence, or intimate partner violence with a boyfriend or girlfriend – we have a program that can help you examine your life and learn how to make healthier choices that can change the direction of your life!
The intervention approach offers a method of alcohol/drug assessment, diagnosis and treatment induction that is faith-based, therapeutic and cost effective. It works in tandem with the community’s judicial and human service systems. Our primary initial goal is to help people to mobilize and use their latent psychological, relational, and spiritual resources to handle their immediate crisis constructively. Other goals include:
· to provide a comprehensive assessment of an individual’s involvement with alcohol and other psychoactive drugs;
· to confront participant denial and encourage self-evaluation and self-reflection; and to prepare participants for treatment when necessary and to increase their accessibility to treatment resources.
Our EIP is certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (OMHAS) and meets the requirements for both 48-Hour and 72-Hour residential programs. The 72-Hour program also includes an eight (8) hour remedial driving class at no additional charge to the client.
· 48-Hour Fee: $275.00
· 72-Hour Fee: $300.00
