Sub-Acute Medical Detoxification

The Sub-acute Medical Detoxification unit provides peer support, Master’s level therapists, and medical care for individuals who present a need for supervised withdrawal from alcohol and drug abuse. Medical staff, including physicians, are available twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week. The average length of stay is three to five days.

Short-term Residential Treatment

This level of care is designed to stabilize and treat individuals who have a substance use disorder or are in need of a co-occurring capable service. This service offers an intense level of care with a seven day per week clinical treatment regimen. Individualized treatment plans utilize group therapy, educational lectures, AA/NA meetings, continuing care planning and referral. The length of stay generally ranges from five to thirty days.

Outpatient Treatment

These non-residential services offer individuals who are clinically appropriate the ability to carry on their daily responsibilities and attend group/individual therapy and educational lectures multiple times throughout the week.
