CAT’s new Monarch Counseling Center is a state-of-the-art facility designed to meet the needs of those who experience addiction, mental health issues, and other life difficulties that could challenge recovery.
Personalized, professional counseling empowers individuals and families to build the skills needed to begin the recovery process.
Monarch Family Services
What are Monarch Family Services?
Monarch Family Services are offered as a new way to emphasize the “rebuilding families” part of our mission. Our Family Counseling Services offer an education group, as well as individual, couple, and group counseling to the loved ones of those suffering from Substance Use Disorder (SUD).
What is education group?
Education group is the first step in Monarch Family Services. During this period, participants are given the opportunity to learn and grow in a once a week, four time program at no charge. Within the that time, family members will learn more about not only their loved one’s recovery, but also about themselves and one another as they connect over shared experiences.
What is the healing phase?
Once participants have completed their education group sessions, they are offered the opportunity to expand their experience to counseling through our healing phase. Under these sessions, therapists lend their guidance to family members through individual, group, and couple counseling in order to build upon their goals.
Intensive Outpatient Counseling (IOP)
What is IOP?
IOP is an exciting new treatment option featuring structured and evidence-based individual and group counseling services for drug and alcohol addiction treatment. Individualized sessions are specialized to counsel personalized goals for recovery, and occur once a week for an hour. Meanwhile, group sessions explore a research grounded curriculum and occur three times a week in three hour increments.
What is the difference between IOP and other treatment options?
IOP is a treatment option for people who may benefit from treatment in a less structured environment than is found in residential services, but more intensive than weekly or biweekly outpatient services. This program offers patients the ability to apply their newly acquired skills within ‘real world’ environments.
Who is eligible for IOP?
While available to everyone, completing an assessment with our Access team will allow us to recommend the best level of care in terms of treatment for each patient. The program is available for drug and alcohol treatment, with plans to include gambling in the future as this new venture develops.
How long is IOP?
Due to it’s individualized nature, the span of a patient’s time in IOP varies, as it is dependent on each person’s singular progress and barriers. The average length of treatment is currently 90 days.

What are our Outpatient Counseling Services?
Our essential Outpatient Counseling services offer patients participation in our Continuing Care Program for those who have completed Short-term Residential Treatment, and Outpatient Counseling for Problem Gambling, Mental Health, and Substance Abuse.
What is Outpatient Counseling?
Outpatient Counseling is a great opportunity for individuals to receive treatment for problem gambling, mental health, and substance abuse. Once a patient has been assessed and they are admitted to begin services, they will be paired with a counselor who matches their needs and begin their sessions. Together, the counselor and patient will communicate and determine the best plan and schedule based on their established treatment plan and the severity of symptoms.
What is Continuing Care?
After a patient has completed Inpatient treatment, they may join our 12 week Continuing Care (CC) program. There, they are given support they need as they re-immerse back into the daily life and learn important coping skills through weekly, 90 minute meetings.
The Gambling Program (new!)
What is the Gambling Program?
Our Gambling Program provides patients with customized, evidence-based problem gambling disorder treatment. Using the Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention curriculum created by experts in the problem gambling disorder treatment field, our team of trained, outpatient counselors lead the 2-3 part recovery program.
What are the phases of the Gambling Program?
Patients will first complete an online group hosted virtually by a trained counselor or may complete the same curriculum during in-person, one-on-one treatment sessions. Next, all patients complete individual after-care counseling on-site. Ongoing treatment is then available on a need basis and can be accessed once the program has been completed.
Why do we use virtual and in-person treatment methods?
The Gambling Program is designed to fits each patient’s needs using an individual, personalized treatment plan. By offering problem gambling recovery services on both a virtual and face-to-face basis, patients are empowered to receive full counseling care in the way that best adjusts to their lifestyle.
How long is the Gambling Program?
This 12 week treatment plan features 8 weeks of Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention curriculum, followed by 4 weeks of after-care counseling.
