The Lakes Regional Community Center Substance Use program is designed to help adults and teens, by providing counseling to assess a variety of problems associated with chemical dependency. It serves them in need of substance use treatment. Services include intensive outpatient and supportive outpatient. Our teen Substance Use program is offered in Corsicana only.
If you or a loved one is struggling with substance use disorder, there is help available. Our outpatient substance use treatment program assists individuals with understanding the reasons why they turn to drugs or alcohol and teaches coping skills so that you or your family member are less likely to try to deal with emotions by drinking or using other substances.
Many times, chemical dependency is a symptom of deeper underlying issues masked by substances in order to deal with a mental health disorder. Our integrated approach combines Lakes Regional Community Center outstanding behavioral health team with our team of chemical dependency specialist to provide individualized services which are designed to create healing and recovery with the least disruption to family, school or work schedules by offering day and evening group sessions.
Our group sessions allow individuals to enter the treatment cycle at any point in the 6 week cycle. Progress toward goal attainment is evaluated throughout the program to determine transition to the next level of care.

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed to meet the needs of individuals who suffer from a substance use disorder and need more than weekly counseling, but don't need residential care.

This level of care is appropriate for those who have mild to moderate co-occurring mental health symptoms requiring monitoring and stabilization, those who are experiencing high stress life circumstances that make it more difficult to cope with urges and cravings to use substances, and those who have not been able to stabilize their substance use in a traditional outpatient setting.
