About the program:
We believe recovery is a process, not an event, and everyone's path to recovery is different. These principles guide our clients through a full range of services from engagement to intervention, treatment, rehabilitation and support.
We have strong relationships with social service and county agencies, and financial and housing organizations, and we help our clients connect with community resources to support long-term recovery. This program is designed for people who need a supportive environment, but who do not need medically supervised detoxification. There are both outpatient and residential programs available. There are also special services for clients being treated for more than one disorder.
