Meet Our Clinical Director of Outpatient Services

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Brian Murphy, Clinical Director of Outpatient Services

Meet Brian Murphy, Clinical Director of The Treatment Center Outpatient Services. As Clinical Director, Brian guides the Outpatient Services team as they help patients transition from the early stages of recovery into a healthy and secure sober lifestyle. Along with his team of therapists and case managers, Brian strives to give patients the best treatment, carrying out The Treatment Center’s mission of providing the highest standard of patient care.

Brian and his team at Outpatient Services understand that recovery is a continuous, lifelong journey. After participating in a 30-day inpatient program, patients often need assistance transitioning into a sober lifestyle outside of treatment. With the help of programs such as individual and group therapy, anger management, family workshops, relapse prevention and more, patients in Outpatient Services are able to reinforce their foundation as they step back into life outside treatment.

In this video, Brian explains his vision and goals for Outpatient Services and how he and his staff work hard to accomplish them and help patients transform their lives:

“Restoring hope is so important because we see so many folks come without any hope, and that’s what we help you focus on. How can you rebuild your life, not going back but moving forward? How can we help you let go of the past so that you can embrace your destiny?

Hi, my name is Brian Murphy, Clinical Director of The Treatment Center Outpatient Services. As Clinical Director of the Outpatient Services program, what I strive to accomplish is leading my team of therapists and case managers to provide the best care that they can, which is what we do on a daily basis.

My main goal is to continue the vision and philosophy of The Treatment Center, which is to provide excellent evidence-based treatment and recovery options as well as a personal, caring environment for every single one of our patients.

At Outpatient Services what we do as folks transfer from inpatient, we can provide all that structure support therapy that’s going to help them bridge that gap from early recovery to a maintenance stage and moving on into a lifelong experience of growth, recovery and healing. We have programs like relapse prevention, an experiential workshop, hypnotherapy, family therapy, as well as provide a supportive, caring, loving environment with all of our staff and professionals that deal with the issues that you’re facing.

Our patients work through triggering emotions, thoughts and events that have crippled them in the past. Rather than using substances, what they do is begin to practice and use new skills that are functional in their life. They also learn how to love themselves and be loved by others.

I know as a family member, addiction and alcoholism is very confusing. That’s why we’re here to help you help them to be able to break the chains of the past, and create a new future for your loved one and your family.

If you think that your loved one is struggling with these issues, please give us a call.”

How Our Court Liaison Program Benefits You

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

“As court liaison, I have seen miracles happen in patients’ lives by facilitating communication to resolve issues rather than avoiding them.”

-Jeff Gaubatz, Court Liaison, The Treatment Center

It’s not uncommon for patients with addiction problems to also have legal problems. At The Treatment Center, we don’t want our patients’ legal troubles to get in the way of receiving adequate addiction treatment.

We believe the only thing that should be on patients’ minds is their recovery. Our patients can safely detox from drugs and alcohol, participate in individual and group therapy, and receive long-term residential and outpatient care, without worrying about their legal issues.

Court Liaison Team - The Treatment Center

Goals of the Program –

CEO, Bill Russell, and Court Liaison, Jeff Gaubatz, created the Court Liaison Program with the goal to facilitate legal communication with patients’ legal parties so patients can successfully complete treatment.

As a court liaison, Jeff and his experienced legal team strive everyday to help patients continue their treatment while communicating with their legal parties. With the help of court liaisons, our patients often walk out of treatment with a continued court date, without a warrant, and with guidance from a supervising attorney.

Our court liaison team facilitates communication with legal parties in all 50 states. With the Court Liaison Program, our patients can receive some of the following services:

  • Video court proceedings
  • Transportation to local court appearances

Dr. Adam Bianchini, or “Dr. ‘B,’” as patients affectionately call him, is the director of medicine at The Treatment Center. He understands the troubles patients are going through when they arrive at our drug and alcohol rehab center. That is why he focuses on giving patients hope at a time when they need it most.

He does this by providing outstanding medical supervision during detox and throughout the duration of each patient’s stay. Whether a patient’s medical conditions are pre-existing or related to addiction, Dr. Bianchini and his team work diligently to provide relief.

In this video, Steve emphasizes how The Treatment Center is different from other substance abuse treatment centers.

Meet the Director of Holistic Services

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Instead of focusing on one style of treatment, our treatment plans meet each patient’s unique needs. Erin Runhaar, director of holistic services at The Treatment Center, and her staff provide services and therapies that complement other aspects of addiction treatment.

Our holistic services team uses acupuncture, massage therapy, chiropractic care and other alternative methods to relieve mental, physical, and emotional pain. Erin describes how surprised many patients are after they receive holistic therapies. Some patients have even told her, “I never knew that something other than drugs could actually make me feel this good.”

It is not uncommon for patients to come to us with issues other than substance abuse or dependence. Whether a patient comes to us with anxiety, depression, or chronic pain, we can help them heal.
