Self Description:

“A warm, home-like setting offering an individualized, professional retreat bringing hope and healing for addiction, adult children of alcoholics (ACOA), family issues and codependency.”

Treatment Philosophy:

“All have the capacity to heal and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. 12 Step philosophy is integrated with state-of-art professional counseling modalities.”

Approach To Dual Diagnosis:

“A holistic approach is utilized that fosters healing in all aspects of a person’s life.”

Family Program:

“Recognizing addiction as family disease, a 3 day family session brings loved ones together for increased understanding and mutual support.”

Position On 12 Step Involvement:

“12 Step philosophy is integrated as part of the program approach. Although A Home Away is NOT a religious program, individuals are encouraged to explore their personal spirituality without pressure or preaching.”

Position On Confrontation:

“Every individual deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. Confrontation, as a once-popular therapeutic approach, is not consistent with our philosophy.”

Additional Characteristics:

“We are a small, private, non-institutional, warm and friendly home-like environment where guests have their own private room and considerable 1:1 attention and counseling in addition to small group sessions.”
