Duration of Stay

Treatment plans are individualized for each client at the Halfway House. During orientation, you will work with your counselor to develop a treatment plan, identifying your goals for treatment and transition plan. Length of stay will be determined by the individual needs and abilities to meet goals and progress in treatment.  Each day, the goal is to move you towards a more independent and healthy life and to transition to a ¾-way house or alternative independent living option.



Daily Schedule

Clinical service hours vary between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. to best meet client needs. Clients have one individual session weekly, one weekly house meeting, one weekly therapy group. New clients will attend a daily Life Skills Group and Recovery Check-In group. Clients may see the Clinical Director or other community based provider for additional supports.
