Treatment Philosophy

We provide an intensive treatment experience with the length of stay and treatment plan determined by individual need. We provide educational programs on the physical, psychological and social-cultural aspects of addiction, and other workshops that help sustain long-term recovery.

Gender-specific programs address the many barriers that traditionally have blocked women from accessing treatment. Our women's track is based on the philosophy that women have unique needs that can be addressed in a discrete setting. The core component of this track is a multi-disciplinary treatment team based on the principle of "women treating women."
