If you’re not sure where to begin your journey to recovery and mental wellbeing, here’s a quick guide to help you get started

Day/Night Treatment (DNT)

BEST FOR: Adults with severe addiction needing flexible care.

Day/Night Treatment, also known as Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), offers a comprehensive and flexible approach to recovery.

 It is ideal for individuals requiring intensive care without the need for 24/7 inpatient treatment. 

We help with:

Mental Health Challenges: Address conditions like depression, anxiety, and mood disorders, providing targeted therapeutic interventions.

Addiction Recovery: DNT offers a structured environment to overcome addiction through counseling and support.

Coping Strategies: To manage stress, anxiety, and other challenges, fostering resilience in the face of mental health issues.

This program, led by experienced therapists, employs evidence-based approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to cater to the unique needs of those seeking sustained recovery.

Adult Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) 

BEST FOR: Adults with moderate addiction seeking flexible care

IOP is a structured therapeutic approach for mental health or addiction challenges, providing more extensive support than standard outpatient care. 

Unlike Day/Night Treatment (DNT), IOP doesn’t involve full-day sessions, allowing individuals to live at home while still receiving intensive therapy multiple times a week. 

It serves as a middle ground, offering a higher level of care than standard outpatient programs but without the continuous supervision of inpatient treatment, catering to those who need flexibility in their recovery journey.


Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) 

BEST FOR: Teenagers ages 12-17

Our Adolescent IOP is tailored to address the unique needs of teenagers struggling with substance abuse and addiction.

Addiction and Shame Reduction Workshop 

BEST FOR: DNT and IOP Graduates

Shame and guilt are common emotions experienced by individuals dealing with addiction. 

Our Addiction and Shame Reduction Workshop aims to help participants understand the roots of these emotions and develop effective strategies to manage and overcome them. 

By addressing the underlying causes of shame, we help individuals rebuild their self-esteem and develop a healthier, more positive outlook on life. 

This workshop utilizes a combination of group therapy, experiential exercises, and psychoeducation to create a safe and supportive environment for personal growth and self-acceptance.

General Psychotherapy and Counseling 

BEST FOR: Individuals and families of loved ones struggling with addiction
