The Program
"In Its Own Words"


Self Description:

"Intensive and holistic residential treatment center that serves substance abuse and dual diagnosis clients."

Treatment Philosophy:

"People have self destructive behaviors that are developed as a means to cope with our deepest hurts. Healing those old wounds is the key to lasting recovery."

Approach to Dual Diagnosis:

"Substance abuse and co-occuring disorders must be treated simultaneously and the interaction of the two understood in order to provide the client with the best chances of long term recovery."

Family Program:

"Individualized family program. When possible, intensive therapy is conducted with client's primary therapist. When family members are unable to come to the facility, phone sessions are scheduled weekly."

Position on 12 Step Involvement:

"12 Step involvement can be very beneficial component to a clients recovery plan. We encorage meeting attendance several evenings per week."

Position on Confrontation:

"We practice 'carefrontation'. Directly and immediately confronting the unhealthy behaviors and thinking errors from a nonjudgmental place."

Additional Characteristics:

"Highly skilled, Master and PhD level therapists. Clients receive 3 individual therapy sessions per week. Our program develops treatment plans that are specific to individual needs."
