Don\'t go here. All they care about is your money. We\'ve been trying admit a relative for 4 days. Fully covered by insurance and they won\'t admit him. Always a sales pitch.

Areas of Focus
Out Patient

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

Intensive Out Patient (IOP)

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.
