Admissions Procedure

Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitilization programs provide a significantly higher level of treatment than outpatient programs, but is not appropriate for those who require inpatient or residential treatment. Our program is designed for working adults who wish to maintain their jobs and community or family responsibilities while they are receiving high quality treatment.

This level of care is the first treatment option for clients with support systems or use of a sober living environment and absence of significant physical and psychiatric complications.


We do accept clients with dual diagnosis under the condition that they are being treated by a psychiatrist, or agree to be treated by a psychiatrist while in our program.

Please note that our program is not 12 step based, although we support all of the community based programs including AA, NA, CA, etc. Our groups are therapy/process groups and require active participation and willingness to attend treatment. This is not a detox facility and therefore, you would need to detox before enrolling in our program. Additionally, we do not provide intervention services.

We will coordinate treatment with a Suboxone/Methadone provider only for those clients who will be attending our treatment program.
