Substance Abuse Treatment

Recovery is a choice, and recovery is a process.  We can help.

As a help center for Substance Abuse in Tulsa, Parkside offers an effective treatment program for individuals struggling with chemical dependency or prescription drug dependence.

Chemical dependency is a serious disease with social, biological and psychological components. Substance Abuse treatment at Parkside is driven by a continuum of care with inpatient, outpatient and support based service options that work to nurture a positive and healthy lifestyle. Custom designed treatment plans can help individuals identify and address thoughts, feelings and behaviors that contribute to one’s addiction as well as develop and implement a personal recovery and relapse prevention plan. Each treatment plan is authored and directed by licensed therapists and psychiatrists specializing in the treatment of addictions, trauma and mental health issues. Younger patients receive educational and substance abuse oriented group therapy as needed. After a physician’s assessment, medications may be used as a supportive therapy.

Inpatient Services include:

  • Diagnostic Evaluation
  • Medical Detox
  • Individual, Group & Family Therapies
  • Care of those with Dual Diagnosis
  • Case Management & Discharge Planning

Outpatient services include:

  • Adult Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program
  • Adult Dual Diagnosis Group
  • Medication Management
  • Family Therapy
  • Individual Therapy

Adult Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program:

Parkside's Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program provides a supportive, intensive outpatient treatment program for patients struggling with addiction or dependence on alcohol, drugs or prescription medications.  People who will benefit from this group treatment program may have been unsuccessful in maintaining abstinence even with support of individual therapy or 12-step supports. They may have attended a residential program and then relapsed.   They are likely to use, or to relapse without the support of a more intensive program.  The best candidates will have available transportation, a reliable living space and, if employed, the support of their employer. CDIOP addresses illicit drug use, alcohol abuse and addiction to pharmaceuticals.  The program provides information regarding addiction theories, development of new coping skills, anger management and relationship issues. Parkside can help with detox and stopping the abuse of substances.

Adult Dual Diagnosis Group:

Adult Dual Diagnosis Group is available for individuals with both a chemical dependency diagnosis and a psychiatric diagnosis who have demonstrated a period of recovery even though their clinical history might include a recent relapse. Group goals include symptom recognition and redirection, coping and stress management skills, and a relapse prevention plan.

Recoveries happen. Every day.
