Our program brings out that potential by creating self-awareness through psychoeducation and evidenced based practices conducted in individual and group settings. Patients will attend a 12-step meeting and Non 12 step meetings 7 days a week and are encouraged to find a sponsor within their community to work the steps and join in attendance of additional meetings to widen the recovery community.
