Areas of Focus
Individual Therapy

This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

    Maureen Jacquot - Resident Assistant

    Ms. Jacquot is a former New York City Police Officer who is excited about a new line of work. As a Police Officer, she found herself interested more in why people were committing the crimes at hand, versus the normal processing of an arrest; this is what triggered her interest into this rewarding career change. She is currently enrolled in her final two classes that complete the required coursework for an M.S. in Mental Health Counseling, and she will begin her clinical hours to complete the program this fall. Upon graduation, she is planning to pursue LPCC licensure. Outside of work and school, Maureen spends most of her time keeping active outdoors, attending music venues, and traveling.
