Family Education

Having a family member that is struggling with substance abuse can be a confusing and helpless experience. Our goal in family education is to give you the tools needed to help you navigate this difficult time. By embracing, empowering and educating you through 4-6 (1-hour) psychoeducational sessions a Project Cultivate clinician will work directly with you to help you:

  • Understand the nature and development of substance abuse/addiction
  • Understand and identify the different ways family members are affected by their loved ones substance abuse.
  • Understand the "three C's" (I didn’t cause it, I can’t control it, and I can't cure it) of addiction and how to apply them to take responsibility for your own health and happiness.
  • Understand the stigmas associated with addiction.
  • Understand the various American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) levels of care and how to apply them in assisting your loved one.
  • Learn about the recovery process and the many roads to recovery for both your loved one and the family as a whole.

Family Therapy

Regardless of whether your loved one seeks treatment for substance abuse or not, finding a way forward from the chaos and pain of addiction for your family often starts with getting help for yourself. Let us help you:

  • Work through the chaos you’re experiencing
  • Set healthy boundaries
  • Rebuild trusting relationships
  • Improve communication with one another

By engaging in family therapy, our clinical team will work with you to understand your unique needs as a family unit and create an individualized treatment plan based on those needs.


If you have a loved one that needs help, but it is unwilling to receive it, all hope is not lost. In fact, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCAAD) reports that interventions are successful at getting someone to commit to treatment 90 percent of the time.

Interventions can take various shapes based on individual needs and family dynamics, but they generally fall within four categories: confrontational, invitational, combination, and love first models. Project Cultivate does not utilize a confrontational approach like those depicted on T.V shows and movies. Instead, Project Cultivate utilizes a motivational approach rather than a confrontational one.

Community reinforcement approach and family training(CRAFT) teaches how to change one's interactions with the addicted person to reduce or stop his or her substance use and simultaneously utilizes motivational psychology to encourage the person to move toward getting help.

Research shows that the CRAFT model is not only effective in helping families cope with their loved one, but is also more successful than other approaches at getting the substance user more engaged in treatment. In fact, multiple studies have found that CRAFT is three times more successful at getting people into and committed to treatment over traditional confrontational approaches.

A CRAFT intervention typically takes between 4 and 6 one-hour sessions to get a loved one into treatment and another 6-8 sessions following treatment entry. However, some loved ones may choose to focus solely on treatment entry, rather than continuing past the 4-6 sessions once their loved one is in treatment.

Individual Services


Maybe you are in recovery and need assistance in navigating life’s stressors or in the early stages of substance use and are becoming aware of its potential to develop. In these scenarios, the commitments of an outpatient program may not be warranted or attractive to you. This does not mean that you should not seek help, in fact quite the opposite. Left alone they can create even bigger issues that warrant much more extensive interventions. Our therapists can work with you in weekly psychotherapy sessions to assist in navigating these circumstances before this occurs.

This level of care is limited to the severity of an individual’s concerns. For instance, someone that has a severe Substance Use Disorder would need far more help than we could provide in weekly psychotherapy sessions. Therefore, this level of care would not be recommended or offered as a treatment option. If you are unsure if you qualify for this level of care, call us and schedule a free screening today.

Screening and Assessment

Project Cultivate utilizes a comprehensive screening and assessment to determine the severity of a Substance Use Disorder and appropriate course of treatment. With so many individual factors that can affect the severity of a Substance Use Disorder and subsequent course of treatment, it can often be difficult to see how bad a problem is and even more so, what to do about it.

Using a combination of research-based metrics and clinical expertise, our multidisciplinary team will review each case through an objective and holistic lens to get a complete picture of your unique needs. Once reviewed, a member of our clinical team will discuss the results of your assessment and our recommendation for the right path forward.

Our Initial Substance Abuse Screening (45-60 mins) includes:

  1. Intake Packet
  2. Screening Instrument Battery
  3. Clinical Screening Interview

Our Comprehensive Substance Abuse Assessment (2-3 hrs) includes:

  1. Assessment Instrument Battery
  2. Clinical Biopsychosocial Interview
  3. Nursing Assessment
  4. 16-Panel Drug Test
  5. Multi-dimensional risk profile
  6. Follow-up clinical consultation/recommendation


Choosing the right client/treatment match can make all the difference in achieving sustained recovery. With so many treatment options available, choosing the right treatment can be stressful and at times overwhelming.

We fully understand that our programs may not be the right or best fit for everyone and we will never pretend to be. We are not a profit-driven model and will never make treatment determinations based on financial incentives or affiliations. Let us help you identify the available treatment options that meet your needs and help you achieve your individual goals.
