The Medically Supervised Chemical Dependency Outpatient Treatment Program at CREATE provides recovery services to men and women.

These services include medical and psychological services, vocational counseling, job placement and basic computer skills, and help for specific groups of people including those with specific issues.

These additional services may involve parole status, mentally ill chemical abusers, anger management, domestic violence and those in need of lifestyle directions and vocational assistance.
