Our clinically designed treatment programs provide a variety of choices to best help our patients. There is no pre-set number of days, but each program has its recommended length of stay. Good programs are designed to address each person’s individual needs. When a clinical assessment is completed, the Clinical Director will make the appropriate recommendation regarding level of care, based on criteria established by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). Upon admission to a program, an individualized treatment plan is developed as a collaborative effort of the entire Treatment Team, consisting of: the Primary Therapist, Medical Director, and Clinical Director, as well as the patient. The patient’s progress and achievement of treatment plan goals determines discharge or transition dates.
Alternatives offers these programs:
Partial Hospitalization (PHP)
Intensive Outpatient (IOP), Day and Evening available
Weekly Family Program
After-Care and Alumni Group
The level of care and length of stay are determined by the needs of the patient. Our psychiatric and psychological consultants are closely involved in the drug and alcohol addiction treatment prescription. This individualized treatment planning with our addiction recovery programs has been shown to improve treatment outcomes.
