Substance Use Services

As an expectant mother, you want your baby to be as healthy as possible. Remember that most of what you consume is passed along to your growing baby. Any amount of alcohol and illegal drugs are considered unsafe during pregnancy. Quitting before you get pregnant is ideal, but stopping drug or alcohol use at any point during pregnancy will benefit you and your baby. Negative health consequences associated with substance use impact both the mother and the developing baby. Treatment is available.
If you need help, call 601.634.0181.  Talk with a professional about the type of treatment that is best for you.

Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis

You or someone you care about has developed an opioid use disorder, you may be facing a critical situation. Preventing an overdose is the first priority but no less important than being prepared if one should happen. In dire situations, naloxone is used as the antidote to opioid overdose. If it is administered promptly, it can reverse opioid overdose.

Opioid use disorder is treatable. Don’t wait for an overdose to happen. The first step is to seek help. If you believe that you are suffering from this disorder, call the Chemical Dependency Center at 601.634.0181

Many people with opioid use disorder may be addicted to other substances or have a mental disorder such as depression. These health conditions need to be treated at the same time at our facility. 
The goal of the program is to facilitate the reversal, referral, and recovery of clients who would not typically seek treatment in the traditional manner.  Staff will work with first responders and emergency room personnel to transition individuals who are being treated for an overdose, drug-related accidents, and withdrawal patients who seek additional treatment services to residential treatment as soon as possible.  

The plan is to enhance the efforts aimed at intervening with individuals as they overdose, then transitioning them to treatment, rehabilitation,and recovery.


Without effective detoxification protocols, individuals lacking resources will inevitably continue or return to illicit opiate use and, consequently, the myriad of associated psychosocial and health problems. This program is timely in addressing the identified problems in our community while we believe it is manageable and could be implemented with a high rate of success and therefore mitigates future human and financial costs. During and after residential treatment, the provision of peer and other recovery support services will be implemented into the client’s care plan to improve treatment access and retention and support long-term recovery.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)

An alternative to residential treatment, the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) helps individuals experiencing problems caused by alcohol or drugs on an outpatient basis. While treatment is grounded in the same proven methods as our residential program, the evening therapy sessions do not interfere with employment or family needs. 

Consistent with the residential program, the IOP implements its own evidence-based curriculum, the Matrix Model, which brings explicit structure to outpatient settings combining counselor support, group, and individual participation, spiritual group involvement, relapse prevention and family involvement. 

Individuals participating in the Intensive Outpatient Program are typically in need of more than individual outpatient therapy and do not require residential treatment or detoxification. IOP allows the individual to continue to fulfill his/her obligations to family, job and community while obtaining treatment. 

Individuals will also be advised that family sessions are encouraged as part of the IOP curriculum and may serve to meet compliance with or toward treatment objectives.  Family Day Programs will be held monthly within the CDC in order to foster discussion on topics such as Al-Anon, Nar-Anon, the disease of addiction, and Stages of Family Recovery.

Recovery Support Services

Recovery Support Services are non-clinical services that assist individuals to recover from alcohol or drug problems.  Services may include social support, linkage to and coordination among allied service providers, and a full range of services that facilitate recovery and wellness contributing to an improved quality of life. 

Individuals will have assistance in building and maintaining the social networks that contribute to the feeling of support and that enhance their quality of life and feeling of security. These services are flexibly staged and may be provided prior to, during, and after treatment. Recovery Support Services may be provided in conjunction with treatment, and/or as separate and distinct services, to individuals and families who desire and need them.  The Recovery Support Services Counselor works closely with the Chemical Dependency Center staff and interact with clients throughout the residential alcohol and drug use treatment stay. 

The benefits of Recovery Support Service to individuals and family members include:

  • The provision of a comprehensive menu of services and supports that can be combined and readily adjusted to meet the individual’s needs and chosen pathway to recovery.
  • An ongoing process of systems-improvement that incorporates the experiences of those in recovery and their family members.
  • The coordination of multiple systems, providing responsive, outcomes-driven approaches to care
