Programs and services we offer

Our ACT program helps recovering addicts live better without dependency on alcohol or mood-altering chemicals. We personalize your treatment to meet your individual needs as you seek recovery through our program. Your treatment plan will involve a variety of individual and group therapy sessions along with other, advanced detoxification (detox) and rehabilitation program elements.

Our programs include:

Medical detox program

This is an inpatient hospital admission for medical detox. Patients are monitored 24/7 by medical staff to ensure safe and effective treatment of withdrawal and symptoms. Stabilization is offered for patients who have alcohol, opiates or benzodiazepines in their systems. Patients are also provided with discharge planning assistance to help them in future recovery planning.

Partial hospitalization (day-treatment) program: 28 days

In this program, patients participate in treatment programs with other inpatient population. It is intended to treat high-acuity patients needing moderate supervision. Patients do not stay in the ACT Center, but receive the same recovery education and therapy as the patients in the inpatient program.

Inpatient treatment program: 28 days

This is a structured, evidence-based program for high-acuity patients. It uses a variety of treatment modalities tailored to the individual. Patients are housed in the ACT Center and participate in all transitional program components. Patients also participate in treatment groups, psychoeducational groups, individual counseling and structured activities.

Residential program: 30-90 days

This program is the same as the inpatient program, but it is designed for medium- to high-acuity patients. Patients are still housed in the ACT Center and participate in transitional program components, treatment and psychoeducational groups, individual counseling and structured activities.

Intensive outpatient program (IOP): 56 days

This is a structured outpatient recovery program for lower acuity patients. In this program, patients stay in the ACT Center for a shorter period of time. There are two options for the IOP:

  • Day IOP: Monday through Thursday from 10:30am to 2:00pm
  • Evening IOP: Monday through Thursday from 5:30pm to 9:00pm

Drug screenings during treatment

Random urine drug screens are administered to patients in all treatment programs.

Virtual substance abuse program

We understand these are stressful times with challenging weeks and months ahead. That's why we continue to offer new ways to deliver uninterrupted care for your physical and mental health. This now includes a virtual intensive outpatient drug and alcohol recovery program.

This telehealth substance abuse program serves patients by:

  • Delivering expert clinical care to those who are unable to receive in-person treatment
  • Ensuring patient confidentiality and informed consent
  • Establishing a plan for psychiatric emergencies that may present during a telehealth visit, which is reviewed with each patient before each session
  • Evaluating for participation appropriateness, including training and set-up for patients
  • Using WebEx Meetings, a secure HIPAA-compliant platform that is easy to use for both the provider and the patient
  • Reducing potential exposure to viral pathogens while maintaining patients’ connection to others

Patients who are appropriate for virtual group substance abuse treatment need:

  • Access to a laptop, tablet or mobile device
  • Ability to download and use the WebEx Meetings application
  • Ability to navigate the telehealth platform
  • Appropriate cellular data or WiFi access

Relapse prevention and education

Founded on a 12-step philosophy, the ACT program can help you develop strong relapse prevention skills, improving your ability to manage life's challenges. We accomplish this by teaching you to identify the feelings behind addiction and ways to make better decisions about how to cope with them.

Our compassionate staff will also do everything they can to ensure your ongoing success, using a variety of treatments and therapies as well as family education. By partnering with family and friends, we help guide you through the drug addiction recovery process—one step at a time.
