Community Services Counseling believes that drug addiction is a treatable disorder. Through treatment that we tailor to individual needs, clients learn to control their condition and live normal, productive lives. Like people with diabetes or heart disease, people in treatment for drug addiction learn behavioral changes and often take medications as part of their treatment regimen.
Our behavior therapies include counseling, psychotherapy, support groups, and family therapy.
Many clients require other services as well, such as medical, mental health services and HIV prevention services. Wraparound Services are offered in
conjunction with Idaho Department of Vocational Rehabilitation for employment support, psychiatric examinations and treatment medications. We work closely with the Idaho Department of Health and
Welfare, Children and Family Services in attempts to reacquaint clients with their children. Additionally, we provide services to Felony and Misdemeanor Probation Services to help clients control their lives with chemical dependency and cognitive issues.

Our Facilities

A home environment is important to the recovery of our clients. At Agape, clients find home in three, turn of the 20th Century, Victorian Homes located in the heart of Old North Knoxville. These homes are located within walking distance to numerous job opportunities, public transportation stops, and other necessary amenities.

Each of these historic structures can accomodate eight women in the intensive residential treatment program. These women are provided with shelter, food, clothing, transportation, and all of the counseling and programming necessary for a successful foundation for recovery.
Our Programs

We serve over 100 women a year in our residential treatment program. This is our most intensive program and provides clients all of their basic needs, combined with intensive counseling and training to reach their goals of sobriety.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a relatively new program designed to provide an intensive treatment program for those who have a suitable home environment conducive to sobriety. Women in this program have proven the capability of remaining drug and alcohol free in their home environment, but who are not yet capable of sustaining that sobriety without intensive support and counseling.

Treatment at Agape continues long after the program is over, and is just the beginning of a lifelong journey. Upon completion, clients continue to receive care in our After Care program. The After Care Program offers support to clients as they assimilate back into society, and allows for mentoring opportunities with other clients.
Our Growth

Our agency is continually striving to improve our programs and provide better service to our clients. Some of our improvements in the past year include:

Implementation of the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Hiring a Community Development Coordinator
Acquisition of a new van to transport clients
Revamping of all marketing materials

If you are interested in helping Agape continue to serve women in need through financial or other support, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Addiction Risks for Women in Recovery

'You can't teach them hope' women face greater addiction risks, less promise of recovery

Mary Meehan

Treating female alcoholics or drug addicts often requires unraveling the damage of physical and mental abuse that began long before the first drink or drug.

"When you are dealing with women who are addicted, it''s typical to see issues of sexual abuse, lack of education, poverty, lack of parenting skills, the presence of children," said Barbara Ramlow, director of the targeted assessment program at the Center on Drug and Alcohol Research at the University of Kentucky.

Women coming into treatment often have untreated closed-head injuries from domestic violence, or debilitating depression made worse by drugs or alcohol. Some suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, the same cluster of symptoms -- anxiety, nightmares, flashbacks, difficulty sleeping and a feeling of detachment -- that afflicts many soldiers returning from war zones.

One study showed that 70 percent of alcoholic women seeking treatment had experienced some kind of sexual abuse. (That compares with about 12 percent of men.) Many had suffered trauma as a child or teenager, including high rates of incest.

Others end up in dangerous situations because of their drug or alcohol abuse.

A woman using illegal drugs is "a good target for a predator," said T.K. Logan, a researcher with the Center on Drug and Alcohol Research at UK. "They know that you are either not going to report it or you are not going to be believed."

The result of all this trauma can be "a woman broken into pieces," Ramlow said.

''Overwhelmed and immobilized''

Those pieces don''t magically mend just because someone puts down the drink or the drug. In some cases, the withdrawal of the substance can cause all of those old psychological wounds to begin to fester anew. And those issues, Ramlow said, have implications as to how much a person is able to recover. The grief and trauma can come on like a wave, and then "it''s easy to become overwhelmed and immobilized," she said.

Because of the way their bodies metabolize alcohol, women become drunk faster; get addicted to alcohol more quickly; and develop alcohol-related diseases such as hypertension and damage to the liver, brain and heart more rapidly than men do, according to Sue Foster, vice president and policy director at the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University.

Women are also 48 percent more likely than men to have drugs prescribed that can lead to addiction, and twice as likely as men to become addicted to those drugs, according to Women Under the Influence, a book published by the center in 2006.

Historically, Foster said, addiction treatment was created based on the male experience. The standard 30-day inpatient treatment model was originally based on work with male heroin addicts, and it often relies on confrontational group meetings that d...
