Ona Treatment Center is the first of its kind leading the way in bridging the gaps between treatment, policy and research “there is often a wide cultural and experiential separation between the professionals who conduct empirical investigations and the men and women who apply research findings in treatment and policy settings” (Institute of Medicine (US); Committee on Community-Based Drug Treatment, 1998). Ona prides itself on not being a “cookie cutter” treatment center, but instead Client-Centered with one-on-one counseling with master degree or higher staff who are also highly involved in research as well as policy through the forensic sciences in addition to evidence-based curriculum for group sessions tailored toward the highest efficacy rates in the nation.

Ona appreciates the importance of Person-Centered planning beyond reimbursement and administrative requirements. Ona Treatment Center schema and modalities coordinate evidence-based comorbidity treatment for substance and alcohol use disorders with symptoms that arise from:

Ona Treatment Center’s Clinical Director, Forensic Psychologist Dr. Siggins utilizes several of the most comprehensive assessments in addition to the most frequently and extensively used by ASAM, and SASSI. In 1939 “there was a 93% success rate based on a specific survey conducted by Clarence S. and reported in A.A. literature” (, 2020). While other treatment centers “60% reported revising treatment plans to fit MCO protocols” (Danziger & Welfel, 2001). Ona Treatment Center refuses to compromise its clients. Implementing assessments such as MMPI-2, MCMI-IV, MBTI, DISC, etc. Ona ensures the best possible outcome through case conceptualization, “ attuning interventions to clients’ problems and goals” (Vandenberghe, 2015). Clients will be evaluated and assessed during their twice weekly one on one intensive treatment sessions, which will be modified according to client needs, with no additional costs outside of their Managed Care Organization. That is the Ona Person-Centered Treatment difference.
