Substance Use Treatment

The Heartland Family Service outpatient Substance Use Treatment program utilizes various treatment methods to give clients the skills and knowledge they need to overcome addiction. Our Matrix treatment model consists of active treatment and long-term aftercare support that includes family and individual therapy and gender-specific groups. The dual-diagnosis approach provides on-site integrated mental health evaluation and treatment, psychiatric evaluation, medication management, and 24-hour emergency access.

A recent addition to the Substance Use Treatment program, is a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) offering. MAT is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.

Eligibility: Services are provided in Harrison, Mills, and Pottawattamie counties in Iowa and Cass, Dodge, Douglas, Sarpy, and Washington counties in Nebraska.

Iowa Funding: The Heartland Family Service Substance Abuse Treatment program is part of the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) Integrated Provider Network, with services funded by the IDPH and the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
