What We Do | Services

MWFHE provides services to individuals and families who have a history of chemical abuse/ dependence and/or mental health challenges. All individuals that we encounter through walk-ins, outreach, or referral who are age eighteen (18) years or older, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual preference, or national origin, we screen and assess for admission into our program. MWFHE operates on the premise that all persons seeking recovery are resilient and have special attributes that they can utilize in the recovery process. Our target population has varied backgrounds and past experiences, and possesses an array of strengths that must be accessed in order to promote their recovery, empowerment, and a chance at achieving their hopes, dreams and aspirations.

The administration and staff at MWFHE are strongly committed to the holistic person-first, strength-based process of recovery. We look forward to providing the level of care and services that help people in recovery to function as productive and responsible members of society. 

At intake, we take the first step in identifying and managing substance abuse and/or mental health challenges through the screening and assessment process. The screening process requires individuals to complete several questionnaires that are used to assess their current status. The assessment process uses among other things motivational interviewing techniques to determine strengths and challenges a person has, and to assist in the accuracy of assessment findings. The screening and assessment processes allow clinicians to determine the level of drug and alcohol care an individual may need as well determining mental health diagnosis, if any.

Drug & Alcohol Recovery Services

Intensive Outpatient (IOP) services are the highest level of therapeutic care. IOP services include a one-hour individual therapy session, and three 3-hour group sessions per week. The less intense OP services include a one-hour individual therapy session and two 2-hour group sessions per week.
