Individuals attending the program will attend 9 to 13 weeks depending on the client’s needs.
Our program is structured on The 12 Steps Program and allows individuals to maintain their daily routines, while investing one to three evenings a week into the program of recovery. This allows them to gain relapse prevention skills and build a supportive recovery network.
