INTENSIVE DAY TREATMENT FOR ADDICTIONS


The DISCOVER Program provides an alternative to, or a step down from Addiction Treatment Program, Outpatient Counseling inpatient addiction care. DISCOVER provides crisis stabilization and support toward community integration. The program is based on a recovery model, which assists participants in regaining an optimal level of functioning in their community, family and vocational roles. 

Daily services are provided Monday through Friday for individuals with addictions or dual diagnosis and for their families. Treatment is provided with dignity and respect, taking individual and cultural differences into consideration. Our staff works in partnership with participants to define and develop a plan of care that is individualized and geared toward success. All of our services are strictly confidential. We respect and protect your privacy.
