While 22.7 million Americans need help for a problem related to drugs or alcohol, only about one in ten (2.5 million) receive the necessary treatment.
ColumbiaDoctors Psychiatry is consistently ranked in the top tier of drug and alcohol programs by US News & World Report. At the Smithers Family Center, we care for adults aged 18 and over who are struggling with mental health conditions and who are looking to change their substance use. Our experts provide a combination of individual, group, and medical therapy tailored to individual needs. We also offer social supports to reward participants for non-use and to engage family members in the treatment process.
The Smithers Center offers a flexible framework allowing participants to move between treatment modalities as their goals shift. We collaborate with outside providers and programs whenever possible.
Our therapists and psychiatrists employ the most effective, evidence-based approaches, including
- Motivational Interviewing (MI)
- Motivational Enhancement Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
- Mindfulness and Acceptance-Based Therapy
- Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (TFP)
- Life Skills Enhancement
- Cognitive Remediation
- Medication Management (Psychopharmacology)
Our goal is to provide comprehensive evaluations, assessing the severity of the problem and any psychiatric disorders, medical conditions, or psychosocial problems that need to be addressed, and offering solutions that are tailored to individual goals.
