Please research before going here. THIS IS NOT A 30 DAY PROGRAM! In the sober house, get used to drama. Also if you want to leave after 30 days, prepare to be attacked by co-founders.

Areas of Focus
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Client & Family Support Groups

Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

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.

Individualized Treatment

Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

Process Abuse Treatment

Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.

Individual Therapy

This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Aftercare Support

Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

Creative Arts Therapy

Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.

Holistic Therapy

Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.


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.

Intensive Outpatient

Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.


Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)

Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

  • Great program for anyone than needs help with addiction! Life changing experience and a very unique approach to recovery. This includes therapy, groups, and sober living to the AA aspect of it, which has really helped many create a foundation for a successful life in sobriety. I've experienced all phases of the program and it really helps you get back into the real world gradually, so you can live life again along with the help of a strong community and network.

  • Northeast Addictions Treatment Center was a very powerful influence of my sister's life. When she arrived, she was a mess..coherent only half the time and difficult to talk to. Drug and alcohol addiction had destroyed her life, and any semblance of normalcy was pretty much out the window. We didn't know where else to turn. A friend of mine, who had similar struggles with addiction had recommended Northeast to us. Having had little experience in this area, I wanted to send my sister to a place that had been a positive experience for someone I actually knew. After spending nearly three months in treatment, she left the treatment center with a renewed sense of purpose, with the support of her family and an amazing post-care support system. She shared with me some of her experiences while in treatment and how she was given proper guidance from staff on how to stay close to the people and places that were positive influences that would help keep her sober. She has since been attending weekly meetings with others and events that she claims have kept her sober during times where she worried about relapsing. This isn't just a treatment center, it's a place where people can have a chance to get their life back....where they can gain control and get on top of the triggers that have been ruining their lives. Thank you Northeast! You are a Godsend! I would recommend this facility to anyone struggling with addiction.

  • I went through this place as well, and my entire life changed in more and better ways than I ever thought possible. I have no idea where I would be if I hadn't came to northeast. This place saved my very life.
