ABOUT JETT MORGAN TREATMENT SERVICES, LLC

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment starts with a thorough assessment based on the American Society of Addiction Medicine Patient Placement Criteria and the DSM 5.
The duration and intensity of treatment varies from client to client, but for general outpatient care the length is between one and eight hours per week, over a period of one to 12 months. The intensive outpatient program (IOP) requires at least nine hours of treatment a week for three months.
The primary mode of treatment is psychoeducational group counseling. This treatment draws on clients’ skills and focuses on strengths, goals, developing positive relationships, and abstinence. Programs also use evidence-based treatment models, including individual counseling, case management, anger management, referrals, skills-based group counseling, and on-site alcohol and drug testing.
Jett Morgan does not use the 12-Steps, though clients who are enrolled in 12-step groups are welcome to continue attending them during their time at Jett Morgan. Its treatment focuses on client strengths to empower them and to put them at the center of the treatment methodology. The concept behind the treatment model is known as “the neuroscience of change.” Counseling is based on a motivational, goal-oriented style called “Stages of Change Model.” The center also provides relapse prevention training using the popular models of researchers Marlatt and Gorski.
There is also a 12-hour Alcohol and Drug Information School program.
Aftercare services that range in intensity and duration are available as well, lasting from one to three hours a month for three to six months.
The facility’s website notes that the founders are chemical dependency counselors with 40 years of combined experience in the non-profit and for-profit sectors, but does not give further details about credentials.
