Residential treatment is a highly structured program designed to assist in beginning your recovery process. Treatment provides you with the tools necessary for you to gain an understanding of the disease of chemical dependency and to develop the skills necessary to establish a drug-free life.
The residential program can be short-term, thirty (30) days, up to long term, ninety (90) days. Your progress will be evaluated in increments of 30 days. During your stay, patients will meet with their counselor on at least a weekly basis to discuss treatment planning, homework assignments, and group attendance.
