St. Lawrence Addiction Treatment Center

Freestanding Chemical Dependency Rehab

The Program
"In Its Own Words"


Self Description:

"40 bed inpatient addiction treatment facility serving adult men and women residing in New York's North Country and Capital District."

Treatment Philosophy:

"Treatment services are provided within a healthcare context which recognizes alcoholism and other psychoactive substance dependencies as treatable diseases of and by themselves, although they may co-exist with other physical and emotional illnesses."

Approach To Dual Diagnosis:

"Each patient is accessed and treated accordingly."

Family Program:

"Family services are based on the unique and individual needs of each patient and their family."

Additional Characteristics:

"Preparing patients for continuing treatment at the next level-of-care and for involvement with a self-help support group (e.g., 12 Step based, Rational Recovery, SOS, etc.) is an intended goal for each patient."

Position On 12 Step Involvement:

"Patient's are provided many opportunities to participate in 12 Step Programs; some involvement is individually determined through the treatment planning process."

Position on Confrontation:

"Confronting patients with dissonance between actions and values and consequences of behavior vs. intent is a commonly used clinical tool."
