Buffalo Valley views people as basically good with an inherent ability to learn, respond and grow. However, the addiction process distorts these abilities and covers one’s feelings of worth and goodness. We educate the individual regarding the nature of the illness and the effect on the individual, as well as on his/her family and/or significant other. Our philosophy is oriented to the 12 Step recovery process of supporting changes in thinking and behavior that will enhance the recovery process for the individual.

Facility Highlights

  • Case Management
  • Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Self-Esteem Enhancement Training


  • 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.
  • 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.
