Housing, Amenities, select counselors. Admission staff misrepresents programming a_d quality of smenities. For instance, i was told the house has a swimming pool when in fact it dies not.


They literally saved my life. Great, educated, and non-judgemental staff. They started the sober journey that I thought I could not do. I am so happy to be living a sober and wonderful where I can now...

Areas of Focus
Residential Treatment

Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.


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.

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.

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.


Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

Alumni Testimonials
  • Jeff Lazzaro and others at this rehab are hands down the reason my son is happy and healthy today. Such an amazing group of people who truly treat those who have lost their way a family oriented environment and build them up to walk out with their heads up and start a healthy life outside the center. My son has been out for a few months now and they continue to keep tabs on him. I'll forever bed indebted to the whole staff at Capo but Jeff has warmed mine and my families hearts in a way that can never be described
  • This facility and the staff saved my life. I have been to treatment before and without a doubt this is the most caring and supporting group of people I have ever encountered. Jeff in particular has been a huge part of my recovery and sobriety. I have not only been able to achieve sobriety but with the help of Jeff and the rest of the staff I have found true happiness. I would recommend this facility to my own family if they needed help, rest assured you are in the best of hands from the moment you get off the plane until your eventual graduation from this program. We do recover, this program will give you the best odds for success.
  • This place is amazing! The second I got off the plane two staff members were waiting for me at the airport and made sure I was okay and assured my family I was safe. All of the staff truly care and want to see you do well in your recovery and your life after you leave. The head guy Jeff is someone I can trust completely along with the other house managers. This place really gave me hope to being able to live a happy and healthy life!
  • I've been to treatment to this facility in the past with my spouse and it was the best thing I could've done for myself and my family. This program saved my life and taught me tools that are useful when implemented. The staff is amazing and they truly give their hearts and souls to each client that want to stay clean. They treated me like family and went way out of their way to make sure that I got the help I needed. They do 2 meetings a day, groups Monday thru Saturday and implement gym time for our recovery. Unlike other facilities you're not just another client, you're family. I would recommend this facility to anybody. When I relapsed recently, I came back without any shame and was welcomed with open arms. Thank you John, Jeff, Jackie, Jerry, Addie, Rob, Josh, and Cati... you're the best
  • Wonderful experience! Beautiful housing. The staff is amazing, helpful, caring, and very supportive. My experience w/ Jeff L. Was great. If it wasn’t for him I would not have been here. Also props to Addie, Rob, Kent, Jerry and Jacquelin. The therapist really care and have good groups! I would definitely go back but b/c of all the help I received am hopeful I never will!! 👍👍
  • What a solid foundation. It's nice to be around people who actually care for your well being. The staff really makes you feel at home and the other clients I've met have already become life long friends. This place saved my life.
