  • Introduce clients to AA and NA through group and individual counseling. Meetings are part of the inpatient program, both at the Institute and in the community.
  • Provide an understanding of the family dynamics of chemical dependency through individually scheduled family treatment.
  • Educate clients on the physical, psychological and spiritual effects of addiction through lectures, films and discussion of areas such as medical aspects, nutrition, AIDS, ACOA’s, co-dependency, Al-Anon, loss and grief, and recreation in recovery.
  • Build social skills in order to prevent negative peer pressure and loss of impulse control leading to relapse.
  • Teach relapse prevention and other recovery skills through identification of precipitants to alcohol and drug usage and appropriate coping skills.
  • Establish a plan for continuing treatment and long-term recovery.
