Help and Hope for Recovery from Addiction
Outpatient treatment varies in the types and intensity of services offered. Outpatient treatment costs less than residential or inpatient treatment and often is more suitable for people with jobs and/or extensive social supports. In our outpatient programs, group counseling is a major component. Our outpatient program is designed to treat individuals who have addiction to alcohol or drugs and who may also have general mental health issues such as poor coping skills, anxiety or depression. All of our counselors are trained to work with those whose lives are impacted by trauma. We can help you cope with personal trauma if it’s a barrier to your recovery from addiction. Most lasting change happens gradually over time. With each new success, an individual learns to re-build and manifest recovery behaviors. If relapse occurs, it becomes part of the process of working toward lifelong change.
At GHS, we are committed to help you obtain the services you need to rebuild your life.
Our counselors are experienced in helping those who are referred and may have limited motivation, as well as those who are ready to put recovery into action. We support an individual’s choice to use medication to assist with recovery. We will assess and refer to an appropriate provider for medications to assist you in achieving your recovery goals.

Gastineau House is a Sober Living Home with a 2.5 ASAM LOC treatment component.
ASAM 2.5 is considered a Partial Hospitalization Service (PHS) with 20 or more hours (weekly) of outpatient treatment to meet the complex needs of people with addiction and co-co-occurring conditions. PHS is an organized service that delivers treatment services during the day, as day treatment, yet does not require 24-hour inpatient care. This service will be delivered in the educational room of the Gastineau House. Evidenced-based services include process and psychoeducational groups, individual counseling, and case management services will be provided by a multidisciplinary staff.
Gastineau House is a separate housing facility with 10 beds for adult men, who are currently homeless, and have a substance use disorder. Duration is varied based on treatment goal completion and can run anywhere from 4 months to 6 months, with an additional 2 months of housing services provided.
The Juno House is a drug- and alcohol-free Transitional Living Program at Gastineau Human Services (GHS) which provides men and women with the opportunity to build a foundation from which to become independent and self-reliant.
