Residential Rehab Program

Residential rehab or partial hospitalization (PHP) is a type of treatment program for those who require a higher level of care than standard outpatient care is able to provide. Our PHP program is structured for clients to attend 5 days a week for approximately 4-6 hours of different types of therapy per day.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive Outpatient addiction treatment is also known as IOP. Our drug rehab offers an Intensive Outpatient Program that is a structured and comprehensive which supports our clients in their sobriety and recovery.

Outpatient Program

Once IOP is complete, an additional level of care is available. Our Outpatient program is utilized to treat clients at a level that is the least restrictive in order to help clients solidify the growth in their recovery they have already achieved. At this level of care, clients are able to maintain their recovery and sobriety.
