Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Located in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Waryas House Rehab Programs is operated by Abilities First, Inc. It's a non-profit that offers residential and treatment programs for adult men who have developmental disabilities and are struggling with chemical dependency. As a nonprofit, Waryas House is one of 648 (about 70 percent) of nonprofits currently operating in the state of New York.


According to Waryas House Rehab Programs' website, clients stay in treatment for a year, which is broken into four different phase. Each client receives an individualized treatment plan and personalized discharge recommendations.

Topics during group sessions include the 12-steps, relapse prevention, tools for sober living, communication, impulse control, conflict resolutions, case management, work training and job opportunities, and understanding and dealing with feelings.

Other programming includes health management, art therapy, recreation therapy, AA- and NA- meetings, and individual therapy. The treatment team also teaches life skills such as grooming and hygiene, community integration, independent travel, and cooking and housekeeping skills.

While residents need to remain solely focused on their addiction, when they are ready, they work with the treatment center to develop job skills and train for employment. The clinic is open seven days a week, and residents participate in daily group and individual sessions, creative art therapies, and recreation.


Waryas House Rehab Programs' brochure notes the treatment team includes 24-hour residential counselors, licensed clinical social workers, substance abuse counselors, recreation therapists, creative arts specialists, and nurses.
