Areas of Specialization

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

This place and the staff are amazing from the lunch ladies to the RAs, including the upper management staff members and of course the counselors. Its what you the client makes of it. Treatment plans are designed interactively with the clients directional decision. There's an indoor basketball/volleyball court with air hockey and pool tables, exercise machines and oh yeah get excited for kickball. You have visits once a week, phone calls every night, and 8 smoke breaks per day. Medical transport is available just fill out a medical request. (Medical request forms for primary care, dental or specialty care (suboxone clinic or mental health provider). Quit letting substances take advantage of you and take advantage of this opportunity. It's a chance to free yourself and grow out of old unhealthy habits that never served us anyway. Loved this experience and now starting to love my life.
