The Center, which is CARF-accredited and OASAS-certified, opened in 1978 and maintains 30 beds for adult men and women. The Center operates two, separate, gender-specific treatment programs – one for women and the other for men. The Van Dyke ATC is a "Tobacco-Free" chemical dependency service (the use or possession of tobacco products and paraphernalia is not allowed and nicotine dependence is treated along with other addictions). Services are provided to address the basic health care needs of each patient while addressing the specific physical, psychological, and social symptoms associated with psychoactive substance abuse.
The Van Dyke ATC is a state-operated, residential treatment program that provides inpatient treatment and education for adult men and women addicted to tobacco, alcohol and other drugs. The goals of the treatment program are:
Provide a psychologically and physically safe environment to promote a positive treatment experience.
Facilitate the stabilization of persons emotionally and physically.
Partner with persons and their families to explore choices and motivation for changing to a sober lifestyle.
Assist persons and their families with strategies and resources to carry out changes upon return to their communities.
Provide chemical dependency education and information services for persons and their families, as well as for staff and other community agencies.
TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY: Treatment services are provided within a healthcare context which recognizes alcoholism and other psychoactive substance dependencies as treatable illnesses of and by themselves, although they may co-exist with other physical and emotional problems. An individualized treatment plan is developed for each patient and length of stay is determined by treatment progress.
PERSON CENTERED TREATMENT: The Van Dyke Addiction Treatment Center subscribes to the philosophy of the Person-Centered Approach to treatment with those we serve. What this means is:
that we "fight the addiction, not each other";
we work with the goals identified by the patient rather than to impose goals identified solely by the program;
we work to identify and to use pateints 'strengths, needs, abilities and preferences' to move forward in treatment;
we work with the patient to see how the goals and priorities of the treatment plan are 'linked' to their identified goals.
We focus on customer service and ask for feedback at several points in the treatment process from those persons we serve. These include an Admission Survey, Facility meetings and completion of the Patient Satisfaction Questionnaire.
GENDER-SPECIFIC TREATMENT: Separate programs are provided for men and women allowing for the treatment to be tailored to the needs of each gender. Treatment of male patients tends to focus on issues of hostility and resentment toward authority and excessive self-reliance to the neglect of support-seeking. For women patients, the focus tends to be on issues of poor self-esteem and dependency on abusive relationships.
TOBACCO-FREE CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY PROGRAM: "Tobacco-free" is a comprehensive approach to the management of nicotine dependence that integrates education, assessment and treatment into the chemical dependency program.
ADDICTION MEDICINE: Various addiction medicines are used at the ATC when appropriate and as prescribed by our physician and carefully monitored by our nursing staff. These medicines include:
Naltrexone for alcohol cravings
Nicotine replacement therapy with patch and gum to aid in nicotine recovery
Suboxone for opiate withdrawal or maintenance
Acamprosate or Campral to help sustain abstinence
Wellbutrin as an aid in nicotine recovery
Disulfiram or Antabuse as an alcohol aversion medication.
MEDICATION ASSISTED RECOVERY: The Van Dyke ATC's clinical physician, Alan Withiam, M.D., is a certified addiction medication specialist, and works closely with patients to address and manage medical issues in support of "Medication Assisted Recovery".
