Stellher Program for Recovery

Chemical Health & Substance Abuse Services

Our team of professionals assist clients in developing balance in their lives. Program participants will learn more about substance abuse and dependence, recovery and relapse prevention.

They will gain understanding about attitudes and beliefs that create obstacles to recovery, learn self-management and communications skills, and often develop better relationships with people who are important to them.


The following services are offered by licensed professionals:

  • Co-occurring (MICD) outpatient treatment services; addressing mental health issues and substance use issues concurrently, with group and individual sessions.
  • Substance Use Assessment: Call to schedule a Comprehensive Assessment/Rule 25. With this assessment our team of experts can properly diagnose if you have a Substance Use Disorder and then recommend a level of care based on your specific and individual needs.

There are multiple group and individual options available depending on your level of need, these include both in-person and virtual. Call for dates and times.
