The Program
"In Its Own Words"


Self Description:

"A social model residential recovery program in an inviting, homelike atmosphere under full time supervision."

Treatment Philosophy:

"That the long range goal or recovery is the opportunity to develop a productive, meaningful sober way of life that fulfills potential."

Approach to Dual Diagnosis:

"We are not a medical facility and we refer dual diagnosis applicants to appropriate treatment facilities."

Family Program:

"Although we have a family interaction program, in which residents' families may visit and children may spend the night twice a month, we offer no specific counseling to family members."

Position on 12 Step Involvement:

"Underscoring that all of our programs are based on an elaboration and expansion of the programs of Alcoholics Anonymous, residents are required to attend a minimum of five meetings weekly, and two AA meetings weekly are held at our facility."

Position on Confrontation:

"Not part of our program."

Additional Characteristics:

"Our "Living Skills" classes, including relapse prevention, financial management, job-seeking and many others, conducted by experts in their respective fields, are said by our alumnae to be of utmost value upon their return to mainstream communities."
