Addiction and Substance Use Recovery

Eliot’s Addiction and Substance Use Recovery program offers services and treatment options for individuals, couples, and families struggling with addiction.  Compassionate and skilled counselors provide treatment and support that is designed to assist with recovery.  Services include individual, couples, and group counseling.  Interventions are designed to promote abstinence, recovery, and healing.

Driver Alcohol Education is a 40-hour, 16-week program for individuals who have been convicted of driving under the influence for the first time.  The program includes assessment, self-help meetings, education, and victim impact meetings. 

Recovery Coaching is a non-clinical, peer-based recovery support service. Recovery Coaches promote recovery by serving as a personal guide and removing barriers to recovery for people seeking or already in recovery. Recovery Coaches are people with lived experience who build a partnership with individuals in recovery from addictions. Participants create a Wellness Plan and are assisted by their Recovery Coach in developing and using the plan to work toward achieving their goals. Coaches collaborate with clinical staff to serve as an advocate and or a representative of the recoveree when necessary to bring the individuals perspective to the table. All of Eliot’s RC’s identify as being in recovery themselves and they treat the people they work with as equals and experts on themselves. For questions, contact RCREFERRAL@eliotchs.org

The Second Offender Program works with individuals charged with multiple driving under the influence offenses.  This court-affiliated program is designed to assist individuals with understanding the effects of their behavior and make changes necessary to avoid further incidents.  Treatment requires court-monitored abstinence and weekly attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in addition to weekly group meetings.
