    The Program
    "In Its Own Words"


    Self Description:

    "We offer a residential treatment experience that can contribute to a client's life changing."

    Treatment Philosophy:

    "Since alcoholism and drug addiction affect all areas of a client's life, Promises uses a holistic approach incorporating therapeutic and 12 Step models to help return the client to a healthy state of functioning."

    Approach to Dual Diagnosis:

    "Clients who have a secondary psychiatric diagnosis will be admitted and their treatment plan will address the psychiatric problems as well."

    Family Program:

    "Since alcoholism and drug addiction affect the entire family, Promises offers a comprehensive family therapy program addressing issues such as codependency, trust and communication."

    Position on 12 Step Involvement:

    "12 Step involvement is an integral part of program activities as it helps clients to establish ongoing community support after discharge."

    Position on Confrontation:

    "The well qualified staff will confront the client with honesty, respect and compassion."

    Additional Characteristics:

    "Promises is an intimate facility with a low patient-staff ratio thus clients receive the most individualized, comprehensive treatment available."
