Treatment includes individual counseling, gender-specific group counseling, and an introduction to 12-step principles. There is a more expensive intensive outpatient track, as well as specialized programming for DWI offenders.

Aftercare consists of six to eight weeks of group sessions.

McLeod Addictive Disease Center as a whole also provides case management, DWI assessments, a 60-day drug screening/monitoring program, a five-week drug education course, a 10-hour program on soliciting prostitution, and a 12-hour behavioral intervention program that focuses on anger management and conflict resolution skills.
