Substance Abuse Treatment
Substance use disorders are complex problems. People with these disorders were once thought to have a character defect or moral weakness; however, medical practitioners now consider dependence on alcohol or drugs to be a long-term illness, like asthma or diabetes. Most people who drink alcohol drink very little, and many people can stop taking drugs without a struggle. However, some people develop a substance use disorder – use of alcohol or drugs that is compulsive or dangerous.
Hamilton Center has been providing comprehensive substance use services for close to fifty years. The organization provides outpatient programs in each community it serves in central and west central Indiana. Additionally, services such as residential and inpatient services are available in Vigo County, Terre Haute Indiana. All services are provided by trained and credentialed staff in substance use treatment.
Hamilton Center offers access to substance abuse services by priority of need. Priority will be given to pregnant women using intravenous drugs, pregnant women with substance use disorders, and individuals using intravenous drugs.
In addition, staff work closely with community partners and referring agencies to facilitate access to specialized services for mother and child, including, primary care,

Medication Assisted Treatment
Medication Assisted Treatment, or MAT, is substance abuse treatment that combines prescription medication coupled with behavioral health services such as individual and group counseling, case management and other support services as appropriate. There are several types of medications to effectively treat substance use disorders including but not limited to Vivitrol, Suboxone and Methadone.
If Methadone treatment is not recommended, our staff at WIN Recovery will be able to provide referrals to the most appropriate and effective treatment.
Case management assists individuals in living successfully in the community with an enhanced quality of life.

They work with clients to address issues such as improving coping skills, communication skills, self-care, the management of physical health issues, anger management skills, understanding of trauma and improving relationships. In addition, Care Managers have a board knowledge of community resources and work to link clients with healthcare, insurance, social security benefits, educational institutions and much more.

The Matrix Model
Hamilton Center is the first certified Matrix Model treatment site in the State of Indiana. This certification is only awarded to programs who have achieved the highest possible degree of fidelity to the Matrix Model.
The Matrix Model, an intensive outpatient treatment approach for those with substance use disorders, was developed through 30 years of experience in real-world treatment settings. The intervention integrates aspects of several treatment approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy, contingency management, motivational interviewing, 12-step facilitation, family involvement, and supportive / person-centered therapy.
Core components consist of early recovery groups, relapse prevention groups, family education, social support groups, and individual counseling delivered over a 16 week period. Clients learn about issues critical to addiction and relapse, such as cravings and related behaviors. Clients also receive direction and support from a trained therapist, become familiar with self-help programs, and are monitored for drug use. Family members receive education to help understand and support the recovery process.
