Levels of Care
There is no single level of treatment that is appropriate for all clients, and there is no wrong door into our programs. Our team of professionals evaluates each individual and recommends a level of treatment --or a combination of programs -- that is appropriate for each individual. Here are the various programs available:
Medically-supervised Detoxification is designed for those who are at risk for medical complications when withdrawing from alcohol and other drugs. This program involves medical monitoring staffed by registered nurses and administered by a certified physician. Typical length of stay at this level is four to seven days.
Residential Treatment provides intense structure including education and individual/group counseling sessions. Residential educational and counseling may address anger management, grief recovery, self-esteem, coping skills, stress management, interpersonal relationships, gender issues, and relapse prevention. Length of stay is dependent on the individual, but can last from seven days to five weeks.
Residential for the Dually Diagnosed focuses on the greater challenges faced by those dealing with depression and other psychiatric disorders in addition to chemical dependencies. A licensed psychiatrist is on staff to provide psychiatric services, supervise medication, and assist in treatment. Best results are seen at 45 to 60 days.
Transitional Living is available to clients who have completed a residential program but need a structured environment for a longer period of time. This program provides clients with the opportunity to work on restoring balance between work, family, and leisure while still in treatment. Clients are required to obtain employment or attend school, as well as continue counseling and life-skills training. Typical length of stay is two to three months, with a maximum stay of four months.
Outpatient Treatment is designed for clients in early-stage addiction and those at high risk for addiction. To qualify for this level of treatment, clients need support systems such as family and employment. They also must be motivated to attend educational, individual, and group counseling. Typical intensive outpatient programs last seven weeks and include 20 to 24 three-hour sessions. Both day and evening sessions are offered to accommodate employment schedules.
Continuing Care is designed for all clients who complete any 12&12 residential or outpatient treatment program. This program helps the client continue his or her recovery process by participating in group support sessions.
Independent Living is a temporary ⁄ supportive housing project. It is staffed by a case manager to assist with guidance and referrals to area resources such as vocational retraining, education, financial counseling, and other resources designed to help clients in improve their lives and regaining independence. Clients in this program must be homeless and must have maintained sobriety for at least three months.
