Clarity Way offers comprehensive 30-,60-, and 90-day programs, as well as an abbreviated 14-day residential program.

In addition to counseling, clients participate in either a 12-Step program or an alternative recovery model, such as SMART Recovery and Stages of Change model. Participation in these treatment approaches may be incorporated into core programming.

Dually diagnosed clients may meet with a consulting psychiatrist for ongoing psychiatric evaluations and medication management. Along with traditional treatment approaches, Clarity Way incorporates a range of alternative and holistic treatments, including art and music therapy, fitness classes, yoga and Pilates, mindful meditation, and animal-assisted treatment. In addition, the facility offers a number of ancillary treatments for an additional fee.

Clarity Way Reviews

This facility back in April 2019 when I was there was amazing. The staff the other residents all contributed to my success there. The amenities were perfect, the therapy and groups met my needs. I have heard they've changed owners and the place is not the same I guess. If that is true it is a shame because I can't say how much it changed my life. I still keep in touch with other residents that I was close to while there. I ll never forget the people I met at Clarity way.
Clarity Way in early 2019 was a wonderful place The staff there from the therapists to the chefs all of them amazing people. I met so many clients that I will never forget and still keep in touch with. I learned so much from my one on ones with my therapist and learned from others in our groups. I can't tell you how well you are treated and so many amenities to help keep you balanced and to no stressed. Loved the tennis and basketball courts. Its not cheap but it does work with your insurance and when i was there they were very flexible with payments. I am so grateful I found this place.
Clarity way is a top notch rehab. Its holisitc , multi pronged approach to treating addiction is excellent. I learned many techniques to handle the stresses of daily life which is really important for me. I would reccommend it highly!
I'm really glad that I made the choice to go to Clarity Way. The facility is beautiful and never had more than 20 clients during my 30 day treatment there. Days were filled with productive therapy groups, art and music groups, yoga and meditation and recovery groups such as AA, Refuge Recovery and SMART. The accommodations were incredible....large comfortable beds with 1-2 people per room with a private bathroom, television, gym, pool table, laundry, basketball court, swimming pool in the summer, music studio, art studio and fire pit. Lunch and dinner is prepared fresh everyday by an in house chef who makes it all from scratch. Salad bar and homemade soup everyday too. Every client gets their own cabinet shelf in the kitchen so you can have your own snacks. Bread, bagels, cereal, yogurt and fruit available all day. You're also able to have your phone at this facility, so it makes staying in touch with loved ones much easier. Your family can come to visit you on Saturdays and you have the option to go off site with your family and grab lunch and grab some things from Walmart or Target. Overall, I was very happy with my experience at Clarity Way. I was able to learn a lot about my recovery and what I need to do in order to stay sober. I am very glad my journey started at Clarity Way.
