APT recognizes that Everybody Knows Somebody who is struggling with a substance use. We are here to help!
APT provides quality treatment and services to those addicted to opioids, alcohol and/or other substances, including those with co-occurring mental health problems, and those involved with the criminal justice system.
APT has extensive experience in assessing and addressing mental health and substance use issues that impact an individual’s ability to function in a pro-social manner. We recognize the importance of using assessment tools and treatment interventions that match the specialized needs of clients, especially those based on presenting problem(s), risk assessment, gender, age and culture.
Backed by the latest scientific research, APT employs an Open Access treatment model. Patients are evaluated without an appointment and offered same-day care regardless of ability to pay. We then provide them with real-time access to voluntary treatment options. Group and individual therapy, along with medications as needed, are the primary treatment modalities.
At the core of our treatment philosophy is person centered care. Counseling sessions use evidence-based practices such as motivational interviewing utilizing motivational enhancement theory, cognitive behavioral theory, and its offshoot, dialectical behavior theory. Staff is trained in trauma informed treatment and care. APT is unique in that Primary Care and Psychiatry Services are embedded in Substance Use services.
