Recovery is much more than maintaining sobriety.
Recovery involves skills-building and setting goals that will foster independence, family supports, and self-confidence that will lead to success in many areas of life.
It is part of the treatment philosophy that residents are allowed to practice their recovery skills in actual community settings. This begins by attending recovery support activities in the community, initiating weekend passes when eligible and treatment appropriate, and employment and/or continued education. Residents are encouraged to seek and obtain volunteering opportunities or employment during their latter phases of treatment to meet some of their community integration and transition needs.
