Specialization

  • Aftercare Support

    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
  • 12-Step

    The term "12 Step Program" describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps - the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

    The spfld women's house is horrible. In a horrible neighborhood and not up to fire code. Unreasonable house manager who leaves house maybe 3 hours a week if that and hounds everyone in the house. Dont even provide blinds or curtains. Not allowed ac and dryer doesn't work. Horrible place
