Approach To Dual Diagnosis:

"Avia House is a 12 Step social model."
Position On 12 Step Involvement:
"Women who are in denial and or treatment noncompliant are confronted in an appropriate therapeutic non-abrasive way."
Position on Confrontation:
"Women are offered a variety of psycho-education groups focusing on parenting skills, relapse prevention, drug and alcohol recovery education, in addition to programs focusing on the arts, most recently theatre and photography. Moreover, literacy and computer skills classes are offered. After the initial phase, women are allowed to add college and vocational classes."
