Freestanding Chemical Dependency Rehab

The Program
"In Its Own Words"


Self Description:

"A 12 Step oriented residential program, emphasizing assessment, individualized treatment, group and one-on-one treatment and continuing care post discharge."

Treatment Philosophy:

"The loving power of the group process is integral to the ability to make such a major life change and that experience at Sunrise House needs to be combined in AA and/or NA."

Approach To Dual Diagnosis:

"This is a no bar to treatment and a patient, once stabilized, will be admitted to treatment. We can monitor medications, if necessary."

Family Program:

"We believe that all family members and significant others need to be involved in the treatment process."

Position On 12 Step Involvement:

"We are a 12 Step oriented program and initiate the client into the program."

Additional Characteristics:

"Special team for pregnant women."
