Facility Highlights

  • Integrating therapies to address co-occurring mental health conditions
  • Customizing treatment to fit your specific needs and circumstances
  • Addressing all aspects of addiction—body, mind, and spirit


  • Individual Therapy

    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

Facility has a long standing reputation for it's outpatient programs. Affiliation with Betty Ford has necessitated alignment with 12-step program. Honestly, many of the principles are archaic. Some qualified caring staff members. VERY expensive, and financial person will under estimate your costs. Expect a HUGE invoice. The key benefit is the support groups - other memeers are the most insightful / helpful.
    Don't bring a service dog that's certified as a comfort dog even if you have PSD, I was told to send it home.
