We restore this hope by giving them the tools they need to live as sober and productive members of our community. We restore hope to families by educating them on the disease of addiction and facilitating discussion between them and their addicted family member. We restore hope to the community by offering a safe place for those seeking treatment and by providing daily meeting space for practicing members of recovery groups like Alcoholics Anonymous.

Facility Highlights

  • Childcare
  • Self-Help Groups
  • Individual Counseling


  • Intensive Outpatient (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.
  • Detox

    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.
