Nairad Health is committed to providing our patients with the highest quality of services and treatment. As our patients work towards paving a way to a brighter future free of substance and alcohol abuse, Nairad Health assists by addressing individual needs. Our primary focus is to ensure our patients receive the highest level of treatment in a safe, secure and private setting.
We recognize when some individuals enter treatment for substance or alcohol abuse, there is a likelihood they may not be mentally prepared for the changes they are about to endure. With this in mind, we strive to make everyone feel comfortable while in treatment.
We accept self-pay, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Priority Health, ASR Health Benefits, Medicaid, Medicare and other private insurance plans.
Substance Abuse Assessments
Nairad Health has master’s level trained counselors assessing our clients and potential clients, whether they are adolescents or adults, to determine the potential need for substance abuse treatment and/or other services.
During the assessment, we process data including gathering background information and history from the individual to support the best service(s) suited to fit our clients’ needs and base our recommendations on this information.
In addition, we utilize the Multi-Dimensional Addiction and Personality Profile (MAPP) screening tool. MAPP is used to measure substance abuse and personal adjustment issues related to the last six months of an individual’s life. We use this tool to assist us in verifying and supporting the service(s) and/or treatment(s) our staff has recommended.
Once the assessment process is completed and a recommendation has been made, the Nairad Health staff is diligent in coordinating with the original referral source to ensure our recommendations are accurate and secure.
Our counseling staff also has the ability to generate numerous types of reports detailing the information gained from the assessment and the format chosen may be based on the need of the referral source.
Office-Based Opioid Treatment
The primary goal of Medicated Assisted Treatment is to provide monitored medication such as Suboxone, Vivitrol, or Subutex, coupled with counseling and rehabilitative services to patients with opiate dependencies.
This treatment is geared towards individuals who have been addicted to some type of opiates such as: Vicodin, Oxycontin and Heroin or some other equally as addictive opiate for at least one year.
We closely monitor patients with a well-trained and compassionate medical and clinical staff. Recognizing this is a comprehensive program based in an outpatient setting we have taken the extra mile to ensure the safety of our patients.
Our facility is state-of-art and fully equipped to assist patients in developing the necessary skills to recover while utilizing Suboxone to address their physical needs as it relates to their body’s dependency on opiates.
In addition, Nairad Health staff seeks to coordinate our treatment services with other agencies where our patients may be receiving further assistance. If at any time, our clinical staff determines patients’ needs are greater, we will refer them to the appropriate community agency/facility where they will receive the proper care.
Our ultimate hope is patients are able to once again become productive citizens of the community, while in some instances re-establishing and maintaining positive relationships with family and friends.
Individual Substance Abuse Counseling
Our caring and compassionate staff members come from varying backgrounds and have a wide array of experience, ranging from social work to substance abuse. We are diligent about matching each patient with the appropriate counselor; one who is best suited to assist in our patients’ recovery process.
Through individual counseling our Nairad Health clinical staff is skilled in establishing one-on-one relationships with our patients. Our priority is to build trust and establish a safe haven where patients feel secure, confident and respected.
During the individual counseling sessions, our counselors develop a needs analysis identifying the requirements and priorities related to successfully completing the program.
Once an assessment is completed we set goals stemming from our needs analysis and these goals act as the foundation used for building a comprehensive program geared towards our patients unique needs.
Additionally, we work in conjunction with other services and agencies to provide optimal treatment. However, on the rare occasion we are unable to meet a patients needs, we refer him/her to a more accommodating facility better equipped to provide treatment.
Also, depending upon our patient’s needs we may determine to combine individual and group counseling.
Group Substance Abuse Counseling
There are many wonderful benefits of group treatment â€” one being it offers the participants a sense of community. When individuals with a substance abuse problem are surrounded by peers with similar problems, they gain strength and insight from each other.
Nairad Health believes group treatment is essential in increasing our clients’ knowledge of themselves and others; the sessions are helpful in clarifying lifestyle changes and providing the proper tools necessary to make the desired changes.
The group treatment sessions are held in a natural setting we do this to remind people they are not alone and there is hope for creating a different lifestyle.
We also offer group sessions to identify and manage triggers/barriers for their substance abuse treatment, while educating individuals on the skills necessary to make their recovery successful.
Our counseling staff has a wide array of experience in group processes and we seek to provide a therapeutic and positive environment for all patients.
The group facilitator is diligent in providing patients with valuable information for their recovery, while utilizing therapeutic skills to show patients their commonality and how they may gain support from one another during the group process.
Drivers License Evaluations
After an individual has lost their license due to alcohol or drug related issues, a substance abuse evaluation is necessary for them to attempt to get their license reinstated.
Nairad Health has a counseling staff in place with trained and knowledgeable experts to assist in the completion of the Substance Abuse Evaluation, which is required by the Secretary of State.
This evaluation requires a qualified counselor to assess the individual and complete the appropriate paperwork, along with administering some type of screening tool and reporting the results.
We utilize the Substance Abuse Life Circumstances Evaluation (SALCE) as our preferred tool when completing this process to ensure accuracy.
Additionally, we have the ability to fulfill state requirements by offering a full panel drug screen on-site, which is also mandated by the state and necessary to accompany the evaluation form.
Anger Management Counseling
Do you feel that your anger is out of control? Is your anger having a negative impact on your relationships or personal life? If so, we can help. Nairad Health offers one-on-one anger management counseling and anger management group classes.
Nairad Health can help you understand the symptoms, causes and potential effects of uncontrolled anger. We can help you learn how to adjust in specific environments and keep calm when people or circumstances are not going to change in your favor.
There are degrees and levels of anger that is considered natural, but if a person routinely exceeds those limits, is destructive, or physically lashes out at people or during situations that are unpleasant, then he/she should consider consulting with a licensed professional to receive anger management treatment.
If you or someone you love are suffering from anger management issues and found yourself or a loved one at its initial or even severe stage, then getting help from a licensed professional is very important.
Nairad Health offers anger management classes and individual counseling.

Nairad Health is committed to helping you get on track to a healthier path of life.
Alcohol and Highway Safety Education Class
We offer a one day Alcohol and Highway Safety Class. This class is designed to meet court requirements for individuals who have been mandated to an alcohol education experience after incurring an OUIL (Operating Under the Influence of Liquor) or other alcohol related offense.
This one day comprehensive course covers numerous topics related to the consequences of drinking and driving. Participants also learn the negative implications on their bodies from alcohol and other drug usage.
In addition, learners will gain a better understanding of the process as it relates to addiction â€” the progression from alcohol use to alcohol abuse and addiction. Participants watch informational DVD’s providing real-life stories related to the tragedies which may occur when people drink and drive.
Also, participants gain an increase in awareness of the added legal, social and family complications caused by drinking and driving or alcohol and drug addiction.
Finally, participants leave with a better understanding of the dangers of drinking and driving and are better equipped with information to help them make better decisions in the future.
Minor in Possession (MIP) Class
Nairad Health puts forth every effort in assisting our patients in feeling comfortable in the classroom. Our classroom settings include: power point presentations (PPP), videos, written and verbal questions and response formats.
The Minor in Possession (MIP) class is designed for individuals under the age of 21, who were found in possession of marijuana, alcohol and other drugs.
The class also includes individuals who have been mandated by their employer, a parent or guardian, courts or probation department. We also accept referrals from other agencies and self-referrals.
The primary focal point of the MIP class is to provide the students with factual data to assist him/her during crucial times when making decisions as it relates to future use of alcohol and drugs.
Student and Employee Drug Testing
In today’s society drug and alcohol abuse is common. It is a widespread social problem within all communities and yet is difficult to combat for numerous reasons. Unfortunately, these problems are far-reaching and long lasting.
For employers, drug testing is an effective means to educate and to uncover illegal, personally damaging drug use amongst employees and members of the community. Drug testing is necessary to help prevent drug usage from spiraling even further out of control.
Since drug-usage allegations are serious in nature, it is imperative to utilize accurate drug testing services, which can supply authoritative results.
If you have a drug policy in place stating; “Employees must submit to drug testing requests,” you have the ability to take advantage of our services for efficient and professional results.
For those undergoing our treatment services, testing is an important part of treatment. When counseling a patient suffering from addiction it is crucial for us to be aware if the patient is currently under the influence of drugs during the course of treatment.
All test results will remain confidential unless the patient consents otherwise.
