Daily Community – facilitated daily by unit staff, community is designed to enhance the patient’s ability to function in social settings with both staff and peers. Morning and/or afternoon community meetings are utilized to establish and evaluate goals set by each patient in the acute programs.

AA, NA, AL, ANON, ACOA, etc., are support groups for the patient and family dealing with various addictive disease issues. These meetings are usually open to the general public and are led by a volunteer from the recovering community in various community locations.

These groups provide an opportunity for patients to give input into their treatment plan, receive feedback from the clinical team, and participate in structured activities related to various didactic groups. Peer review may also provide feedback about patient progress in the various programs.

We offer 2 different models to choose from to follow for your path to recovery. We offer the traditional 12-step program and we also offer Smart Recovery Self-Management and recovery Training. Smart Recovery originates in science. It is a 4-Point Program: Building and Maintaining Motivation; coping with urges; managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; living a balanced life.

The duration and intensity of the withdrawal that accompany vary greatly and become increasingly dangerous to a person who is duel-diagnosed with additional physical and behavioral health problems.
