Levels of Care

Detoxification provides clinical supervision and assistance in managing withdrawal for drug and alcohol dependent or intoxicated persons. Detoxification can be medically monitored or medically managed.

Non-hospital Residential Treatment 
Often called "rehab," this is an intensive live-in therapeutic environment. The specific program length of stay (varying from 14 to 180 days) is based on individual needs. Treatment subcontracts include various programs, ensuring that clients' needs are met, whether they are adolescents, women, women with children, Spanish speaking only, have co-occurring drug and alcohol and mental health disorders, or are involved in the criminal justice system.

Halfway House 
This live-in combination of therapy and support is offered to recovering person(s) having completed prior treatment, which may be homeless or near homeless and unemployed or need intensive help for a successful transition to sober, independent living. Self-sufficiency is the goal.

Outpatient Counseling
Counseling is provided one or two hours per week and may include primary care, aftercare from rehab, or utilized as an intervention to encourage individuals to enter more intensive services. Initial assessment to determine referral to the appropriate level of care is also provided. Treatment is also provided for family members affected by another's alcohol or drug abuse.

Partial Hospitalization
Partial Hospitalization is intensive treatment provided on an outpatient basis for clients with serious addiction problems that have sufficient supports to engage in treatment in the community. According to a planned regimen, services are provided with regularly scheduled sessions at least three days with ten or more therapeutic hours per week.

Medication Assisted Treatment
Treatment and medication is provided in conjunction with individual and group therapy.
