Treatment Services

Community Focus

Building a Sober Network
Being sober during treatment is different than being sober outside of a rehab setting. Getting you or your loved one back to the real world after rehab is important. Early in our treatment programs, we stress community involvement for clients by encouraging their involvement in local, aftercare-focused activities. For example, clients are able to exercise and work out at an offsite gym, attend community 12-Step, and other support meetings. Twice weekly, clients go on staff-supervised community outings to shop for personal items. Getting out in the community gives our clients a sense of personal accountability while exposing them to potential real-life triggers for relapse.
