Self Description:

“Comfortable detox in a bed and breakfast type atmosphere. 1:1 with counselors and psychologist and a group a day, introduction to 12 Steps.”

Treatment Philosophy:

“To provide superior medical detoxification to individuals suffering from the disease of chemical dependency in an environment that exemplifies compassion, promoting dignity and self-esteem.”

Approach to Dual Diagnosis:

“Focus on the use of the “biopsychosocial” model exploring the role of dynamic factors of one’s personality, while affording them the opportunity to acquire recovery skills and understanding of issues that further the addictive process.”

Family Program:

“Due to the length of stay, averaging 5-10 days, family matters are usually done by conference calls. We implore patients to continue treatment in outpatient, extended care, etc., where these issues can be dealt.”

Position on 12 Step Involvement:

“We use a 12 Step philosophy as an integral part of recovery. Nightly meetings are brought in, as well as our highly experienced staff, many recovering themselves.”

Position on Confrontation:

“Summer House believes a patient has already beat themselves up prior to admission, and guidance through assertiveness and nurturing usually get the same results.”
