SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT

KIC Behavioral Health offers outpatient services based in Southeast Alaskan Traditional Tribal Values for individuals in recovery from substance abuse. Our program involves group and individual counseling and is focused on supporting recovery skill development and strengthening connection to culture. Our Substance Abuse Counselors hold Bachelor’s degrees or higher. We assist clients who need more intensive services by providing case management services and referrals to other programs and residential treatment centers. Individuals participating in the substance abuse treatment program that are experiencing both mental health and substance abuse disorders will receive concurrent psychotherapy to support recovery in both areas.

PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION & TESTING

Psychological testing is a service conducted by a clinical psychologist that integrates clinical interviewing with objective psychological measurement. The testing process aims to understand the foundation of an individual’s diagnoses, level of functioning and to identify optimal treatment and service needs. Some examples of testing targets include: Identifying or clarifying psychiatric diagnoses, intellectual and cognitive testing, identifying an individual’s needs based on cognitive functioning, examining the need for academic accommodations, etc. A referral by a treatment provider is required.

WALK-IN CRISIS SERVICES

The Behavioral Health department has a staff member ready to provide crisis intervention for patients who are experiencing distress related to mental health or substance abuse issues. Whenever the Tribal Health Clinic is open, we encourage members to simply walk in to speak with a trained clinician.

ASSESSMENTS

Our clinical team provides mental health, substance abuse, or integrated assessments. During the assessment, a counselor will ask you questions about your history and current situation and may have you complete various questionnaires. The assessment will result in a written document and diagnosis which forms the basis of an individual’s treatment plan.

INDIVIDUAL, FAMILY OR GROUP PSYCHOTHERAPY

Psychotherapy involves participating in individual, family or group sessions with a mental health therapist. Therapy techniques and interventions vary depending on the therapist and the needs you identify, but generally it involves talking with the therapist about challenges you are experiencing.

Therapists in our program hold a Master’s degree or higher in a mental health profession such as social work, psychology, counseling, or marriage and family therapy. Therapists are licensed or are receiving supervision toward obtaining their license. You are welcome to ask specific questions about your therapist’s background and experience.
