All of CATS’ programs utilize evidence-based practices. Evidence based practices are interventions and techniques that research data suggests are associated with positive outcomes. These practices include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Social Learning, and Motivational Interviewing.
CATS’ services are offered through multiple programs that are funded through a variety of contracts and grants.
- Outpatient: Services are delivered on an outpatient basis. Clients stay in their own homes and come to CATS for treatment of their alcohol and drug programs and to reduce recidivism.
- Non-Intensive: 1 to 3 days a week
- Intensive: 4 days a week
- Residential: Clients temporarily live at CATS while receiving treatment for issues with alcohol, drugs and recidivism.
