MICA Program

The MICA Program helps individuals struggling with substance use addiction in addition to mental health issues. This program helps you regain stability and begin the process of recovery from substance use.

At LSA Recovery Inc., we understand that individuals struggling with substance use often face concurrent mental health challenges. That’s why we offer the MICA Program, which is specifically designed to address co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.

Our integrated approach combines comprehensive assessment, individualized treatment plans, and therapeutic interventions to help individuals regain stability and embark on the path to recovery.

MICA stands for Mental Illness Chemical Abuse, and it recognizes the complex relationship between mental health and substance use. Many individuals turn to substances as a means of self-medication, attempting to alleviate the symptoms of underlying mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

However, this self-medication often exacerbates the underlying mental health condition, leading to a destructive cycle of addiction and worsening mental health symptoms

The MICA Program at LSA Recovery Inc. takes a holistic approach to treatment, addressing both the substance use and the mental health issues simultaneously. Our experienced counselors and mental health professionals work together to provide a comprehensive assessment of each individual’s unique needs, ensuring that the treatment plan is tailored to address both the substance use and mental health components effectively.

Individualized treatment plans are developed based on the assessment findings and the specific goals and needs of each individual. We recognize that every person’s journey to recovery is unique, and we believe in the power of personalized care. Our multidisciplinary team collaborates to develop a comprehensive and integrated treatment plan that includes evidence-based therapies, medication management, and supportive services.

Therapeutic interventions in the MICA Program encompass a range of evidence-based modalities designed to address both mental health and substance use issues. Individual counseling sessions provide a safe and confidential space for individuals to explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences.

Our counselors utilize various therapeutic approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing, to help individuals develop healthy coping mechanisms, improve emotional regulation, and address underlying issues contributing to both the mental health and substance use challenges.

Group therapy is an integral part of the MICA Program, providing individuals with the opportunity to connect with others who share similar experiences. Group sessions create a supportive and understanding environment where individuals can learn from each other, gain new perspectives, and develop essential interpersonal and communication skills. Topics covered in group therapy may include relapse prevention, stress management, coping skills, and building healthy relationships.

In addition to counseling and therapy, medication management is an essential component of the MICA Program. Our team of psychiatrists and medical professionals collaborates with individuals to determine the most appropriate medications to address their mental health symptoms, while also considering the impact on their substance use recovery. Medications can help stabilize mood, reduce cravings, and manage co-occurring mental health disorders, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the treatment process.
