The Residential Treatment program offers a 14-day, 24-hour supervised living with highly structured addictions programming. The program consists of educational classes related to chemical dependency, and focuses on relapse and recovery skills. Programming is designed to teach basic recovery and life management skills to increase the individual’s ability to function effectively at home, work and socially. The RT program is enhanced with social and recreational activities, on-site 12-step meetings, family education, HIV education and testing, individual, group and spiritual counseling. Case management services link clients with community-based services to meet basic needs. On-site drug testing is routinely conducted.
The family education program offers information on chemical dependency, treatment process, recovery skills, family involvement and provides support to families while the client is in treatment. Family members are given information on 12-step programs for their own recovery.
