They are a medical model, safe detox facilities, they offer, day, night and residential treatment programs. They also have an aftercare, and alumni association, to help maintain a solid community.This program saved my life. They have one on one councelor meetings, family classes and meetings, and alumni that supports you. They bring you to AA meetings around the area, so you are comfortable going when you are done with residence. They offer extra care after you are done with the first 28 days to help transition you back into the community and the "aftercare" is one night a week, for a year...this is included. When you finish the program, you will have a sponsor, and have a strong community behind you.
