OMAHA –Those battling with substance use come from every walk of life; from successful businessmen and women, newly minted college graduates, to your neighbor next door. Some have lost everything as substances and mental health issues have overtaken their lives. Some are able to live a functioning life, but things can spiral out of control quickly. Northpoint Nebraska helps those struggling get back to living a happy and healthy life.

“We want to help people bring their issues out of the darkness and into the sunlight,” says Mark Jones, PhD. Vice President of Northpoint Nebraska. “It speaks to our mission statement: saving lives and restoring relationships.”

Northpoint Nebraska offers inpatient and outpatient services. When patients come into Northpoint facilities, they find a warm, welcoming atmosphere with around-the-clock medical care. 

Inpatient treatment includes medically supervised detox to ease withdrawals and group and one-on-one counseling to fit each individual’s needs. Patients can continue to outpatient services as they heal and learn to adapt with the new coping skills they’ve learned to live a sober lifestyle.

“We want people to know recovery is possible,” said Jones. “We partner with patients and treat it like any other medical issue, like diabetes or heart disease.”
