Simple, clear cut, no ability to "cheat" while there No fancy amenities; but I do not believe that those are needed in true rehab. This sticks to the basics of getting clean and getting counseling.

Adolescent and Young Adult Addiction Treatment.

It's a great place. They will make you work for your sobriety. So, if you aren't ready to get sober, don't go there. This is ONLY for people SERIOUS about recovery.


Areas of Focus
Family Program

Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

12-Step

The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
