TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
To help clinicians determine an appropriate level of care, individuals first undergo an initial assessment. Those who require stabilization and access to medical attention may be referred to the residential program.

According to the hospital’s website, clients participate in a structured schedule of therapy groups to “share their feelings, frustrations and accomplishments with other patients.” Best-rehabs.com survey data indicates clients may also be introduced to the principles and practices of 12-Step.
Medication-assisted therapy (Suboxone) is utilized to minimize withdrawal symptoms associated with opioid withdrawal, and clients withmay receive medication management to address mental health issues. The goal of the residential program is to stabilize the individual and refer them to a less-intensive level of care, such as PHP or IOP.
