With offices in Keene and Peterborough, Monadnock Substance Abuse Services provides a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere in which persons addicted to alcohol and other substances can change their outlook, change their habits, and reclaim control of their lives and their future.
MSAS’s licensed counselors specialize in helping people confront their addiction, recognize and resolve underlying issues, and learn to take control of their lives.
After an initial consultation, the person and his or her counselor will decide whether a residential program or simple outpatient counseling is best suited to the client’s needs. When residential treatment is likely to be the most effective approach, we’ll help the person find a facility in our region that best suits the individual needs and goals of the person and family. For persons who don’t opt for a residential program, we tailor a program of treatment that typically involves six to eight sessions of individual or family therapy to help participants identify their personal triggers for substance use, warning signs, and vulnerabilities for relapse.
Individual counseling helps participants to develop their own personal relapse prevention plans and strategies, in addition to helping them find ongoing sources of support and self-help, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, and Narcotics Anonymous. Clients can consult our psychiatrist or advanced registered nurse practitioner if there are medical concerns or the likelihood that treatment may include medications.
MSAS also offers specialized group programs, including a readiness group for those considering treatment; a relapse prevention group; school-based groups on alcohol and drug abuse prevention; and a group for those facing issues of domestic violence.
Monadnock Substance Abuse Services can help persons recover their lives and reclaim their futures. To arrange an initial conversation, call 603-357-4400.
