Taking those first steps toward treatment and recovery can be difficult. Our staff is here to help you every step of the way. The purpose of the admissions process is not only to assist you or your loved one with the transition into treatment, but also to ensure we have the information needed to match you with the appropriate care that fits your specific needs. During the admissions process, we will walk you through initial assessments and payment options. We also coordinate whatever else is required to help you take the first steps toward recovery, including any necessary interventions. Learn more about the admissions process.
Traveling for treatment lets you take a step back from the driving forces behind your addiction, whether they are stresses, individuals, or situations. Choosing to receive treatment in your local area can make it difficult to focus on what is most important, which is your recovery.
Benefits of traveling for treatment:
Yes, you may bring money to treatment. You can also have an account opened for you or your loved one at the facility.
The length of treatment stay varies for each individual depending on the addiction severity, co-occurring disorders, any medical complications, and insurance coverage. Research shows the longer clients stay in treatment, the better their chances of sustained recovery. To ensure maximum success, we offer 30-to-90-day programs based on individual needs. In addition, we guarantee that clients who successfully complete our 90-day program will stay clean and sober, or they can return for a complimentary 30-days of treatment.

Detoxification or “detox” is an important part of the recovery process because it removes toxins from the body caused by chemical dependency. Our safe, medically-supervised detox allows you or your loved one to go through the detox process in a safe, medically-monitored setting. This process typically lasts between 5-7 days and may be unpleasant at times. However, clients can expect our staff will make detox as manageable as possible, with features including:
No. Detox is not a stand-alone treatment option. Research shows the longer the time between detox and residential treatment, the greater the risk of relapse. This is why clients immediately transition from the detox program into one of our treatment programs.
An aftercare or discharge plan is a collaborative effort between the client and treatment team that helps the client cope with post-treatment challenges. Effective aftercare planning can help prepare clients for ongoing success in all areas of life. All clients leave treatment with a detailed aftercare plan complete with the contacts and resources needed to continue along the road of recovery—like medical appointments, local therapeutic resources, 12-step support groups, sober or transitional living, or any necessary means of continued support. Aftercare also includes follow-up calls between staff. clients, and our alumni program. Learn more about aftercare.
Some of the symptoms of withdrawal from alcohol or drugs are the result of the toxic effects of these chemicals on the brain. Collectively, these symptoms are called Post Acute Withdrawal (PAW). PAW can be more severe for some patients than it is for others.
The Post Acute Withdrawal stage is when the symptoms and signs of withdrawal begin to take place. All substances have different effects on the body so it’s not easy to determine exactly how long a person’s stage of acute withdrawal will last. Withdrawal symptoms can start in just a matter of hours after an addicted person stops their use or days later, it depends on the substance and level of use and addiction. Learn more about PAWs.
Sober Living Environments Sober living environments are facilities typically located in quiet areas that provide structure and support for people in recovery. Residents of these homes are expected to re-connect with society while living among peers undergoing the same transition. Many individuals enter sober living environments to help them make a smooth, sober transition from residential treatment to independent living. Common features of sober living include:
Halfway Houses Halfway homes, commonly mistaken for sober living, are transitional living environments generally intended to help people reintegrate back into society after being incarcerated. Sober living homes are transitional living environments solely for those in recovery for addiction. As part of our aftercare planning, primary therapists and/or treatment teams help clients find sober living, if needed.
