Every addiction is unique, and your individual treatment experience will be unique.

  1. Assessment of your individual treatment needs
  2. Medically supervised withdrawal management (detox), if needed
  3. Group and individual counseling
  4. Individual assignments
  5. Education about substance use disorder
  6. Life skills training (sober life skills)
  7. Testing for alcohol and/or drug use
  8. Relapse prevention training
  9. Introduction to available self-help groups
  10. Aftercare (follow-up care)
