We use the foundation of the 12-steps developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. While in treatment, great care is taken to introduce and implement these steps into the lives of our residents. This is found through all aspects of care, whether it be the clinical side or through experiential therapies. Our residents experience community support meetings. The real efforts of recovery take place after the person leaves the drug treatment facility. With a foundation of the 12-steps, our residents have a working map for their continuing recovery.
