Our Services

Southwood Interventions provides a variety of substance abuse and related treatment options with differences in setting, type and range of services, and number of services offered.

The goal of substance abuse treatment is to place clients in the appropriate level of care, matching the intensity of service to the severity of the patient’s individual need. As Southwood provides such a wide range of services, we are able to assist our clients in moving seamlessly from one level of service to the next according to their individual needs, all within our facilities.

In addition, we provide substance abuse services in specialized programs designed to help populations with special needs such as criminal justice clients, individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders, and parents involved in child welfare systems. At the heart of our program are dedicated, skilled, and professional staff that genuinely care about each and every person we treat.
