The Walker Center offers an array of services for adults, adolescents, and their families.
The Walker Center Outpatient Treatment Program is offered in Twin Falls, Idaho. The outpatient program provides clients with the tools to structure a substance-free lifestyle and the support to maintain abstinence from drugs and alcohol. Treatment is individualized for each client based on the client’s initial assessment and ongoing progress in treatment as assessed by the American Society of Addiction Medicine Criteria.
The assessment is the beginning of the treatment process consisting of a comprehensive evaluation to include: demographic information, presenting problem, use history including withdrawal potential and acute intoxication, biomedical conditions, emotional and behavioral conditions, readiness to change, relapse potential, family history and recovery environment, collateral reports, strengths and needs, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. This information drives the treatment process including the development of a Problem List and Treatment Plan. Specific barriers to treatment are identified at this time including, but not limited to: lack of transportation, childcare, housing, and/or employment. Coordination with referral sources such as doctors, employers, probation officers/court/judges, and family members is achieved so appropriate actions can be taken to reduce these barriers.

Early Intervention and DUI Education
The Early Intervention level of care constitutes a service for individuals who, for known reasons, are at risk for developing substance-related problems. The Early Intervention program is a cognitive based model that supports the clients’ awareness of risk factors, potential consequences, and identifying changes that align with the client’s personal values and goals for the future. This program is designed to support clients in identifying behaviors that put the individual at risk for developing a substance use disorder, to assist in deterring this outcome with providing relevant educational content. The duration of early intervention services depends on the person’s understanding of the perils of substance use and depends of the assessment recommendations and court requirements.
