The treatment process at Perry Behavioral Choices begins with a meeting with an admission specialist to complete the necessary assessments and to schedule a full assessment by a licensed professional. Clients meet with the professional to identify key treatment needs. Clients are assigned to the treatment program that is appropriate.

Women in need of detox are admitted to the Stanton Villa. It is a residential treatment program that lasts six weeks. Men and other clients that do not need detox are enrolled in outpatient services as needed.

Treatment consists of individual and group counseling combined with educational coursework. Clients also participate in preventive and aftercare planning services. Case managers are available to help coordinate clients’ care.

Aftercare services are available to help clients implement sober living strategies in their daily lives. Clients receive employment support to acquire and keep gainful employment after leaving treatment. Follow-up services including periodic drug testing, support groups, and aftercare programs are available throughout the year to refresh clients’ sober living skills.

Family participation is encouraged throughout treatment. Family counseling services are provided as needed to reestablish support networks within clients’ homes. Clients are encouraged to seek help from family members to gain support throughout the treatment process.


The treatment staff at Perry Behavioral Health Choices consists of a registered nurse, a licensed social worker, licensed independent chemical dependency counselors, licensed practical nurses, and several other certified chemical dependency and prevention specialist assistants. Educational course instructors and case managers are also on staff to coordinate support services.
