Specialization

  • 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.
  • 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.

    I totally agree with the negative reports I read wish I had read them earlier they do cut ties and they do limit calls they gave my relative a paper saying no money was needed at move into transitional housing and at the last minute told them they needed 485.00 to move in to transitional were is someone coming from rehab right into transitional going to get it. the response was get family to come up with it. And as she looked for a job and had not found one as soon as that money the family paid was gone it was get out and get out today I even called to ask for one or two days to find her a place and they said no she goes today. WOW what compassion they show to a struggling drug addict. Would NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PROGRAM TO ANYONE. I think this is unaceptable and cruel. I wish there was more compassion shown and more support

      1) The continuum of care is built to provide recovery support and treatment from the point of detox all the way through their first or second year anniversary. Care is focused on long term recovery, not just the first days and weeks. 2) The place is honest. Unlike other programs, our fees are posted, there are no surprise fees, and no financial relationships with lab services or treatment placement services. 3) Professional staff. Long term residential sites are staffed with masters level clinicians and fully certified counselors. 4) The integration into the recovering community means clients have social support and are living recovery during their treatment and are well established when they move into the community. 5) Dawn Farm believes in the capacity of everyone to recover. There are high hopes, high expectations, and they don't give up. Limitations: Dawn Farm may not be the right place for people who are medically fragile or have a severe and persistent mental illness

      For those reviewing this site, congratulations! It appears you're doing your homework (and truly interesting in the recovery process!). Admitting yourself into a substance program isn't easy, at least it wasn't for me, but I feel so much better several weeks / months into the process! As a current patient within the Dawn Farms network, I have to say there have been impressed with nearly ever aspect of their programs. Yet, unfortunately, there have been several heavy hitting cons. As in many on-line reviews, I tend to look for consistency in what's written here ---- if several individuals are concerned about the same issue, then more than likely, there's a reason for it. Reviewing several of the recent comments posted on this site (2017), I have to agree, that certain members of the staff (including professional therapists), do tend to carry some level of hidden bias or judgement --- which occasionally, rears its nasty head. That's human, right? Nearly all of us do at some point. However, it's disappointing when these limitations of care, cross the line into a professional, recovery environment. If this occurs, it obviously could cause someone in treatment to fear retaliation; or worse yet, 'shut down' during their therapy sessions. While the majority of Dawn Farms staff members have been outstanding resources during my recovery process, there were one or two 'bad apples.' The way around this? In my opinion, it was open communication. Works most of the time. I found it best to communicate my feelings, especially when misunderstood or misread, by one staff member in particular. Most of the time it helps...other times, people are just going to be ignorant (or insecure), and there's little we can do to change the situation. Acceptance. That's what I'm learning through AA (along with a health does of courage and wisdom!). Haha! Do your homework on agency success accommodations and rates, and decide which facility, agency or network is best for you. Either way, try and go in with an open mind and you'll be successful! Yes, sometimes easier said-than-done, but welcome to addiction! For myself, I'm glad I entered the program and FINALLY find myself HAPPY. Hope you can too! Anyway...overall, I would say the positives (for myself), have far outweighed any negatives; as the facility has been well established in the local community for several decades. Congrats for trying to better your life and doing what you have to -- clean, open and honest We all can do this! Go for it ------ it only gets better from here!
