If you want to get clean and stay clean, your first step is to decide if detoxification is right for you. The most successful programs include a team of people who are on your side during treatment, and for long after.

After Detox

After you’ve completed your detoxification program, you’ll have a good foundation to maintain a sober lifestyle. But before you head right back into the same environments that might have led to your addiction, make sure you have the tools you need to stay healthy.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is a treatment program where you learn more about the addictive disease and are introduced to 12-Step recovery programs. With a supportive group, you can tackle your recovery issues, and discuss day to day challenges. And your hectic calendar won’t be a problem, because there are day and evening groups so you can attend despite your work and family schedule. Family engagement is encouraged, as chronic illness affects the entire family.

The Aftercare Program

Participate in group sessions where counselors will reinforce the recovery principles you have learned and apply them to real-life situations.

The Family Program

Care for the most important piece of your recovery team, those closest to you. Support and education sessions for family members are set up through the coordinators of the other programs.
