Substance Use Disorder Treatment Team (SUDTT) for Adults in Charlottesville, VA

SUDTT provides outpatient services to adults seeking help for alcohol and drug-related problems.  Our clinicians have specialized training in the assessment and treatment of substance use disorders.

We offer auricular (ear) acupuncture detoxification, individual psychotherapy, and a number of recovery and relapse prevention groups (see below).  Because spouses/partners are often deeply affected by the processes of addiction and recovery, SUDTT also offers couples psychotherapy.  When appropriate, we incorporate hypnosis and mindfulness techniques into treatment.  We are equipped to provide services to impaired health professionals who are enrolled in Virginia's Health Practitioners Intervention Program (HPIP).

Our approach with clients is always respectful, and we work to facilitate change that serves your own goals and values.  If you are not sure whether substances are preventing you from living the life you desire, we welcome you to explore this issue with a therapist in individual counseling.
