Project Description:








This program provides residential treatment for persons with a substance abuse or dependence problem.  The treatment will generally be for a duration of 31 days, but up to 1 year.  Our program creates a therapeutic community which is ideal for clients who are characterized as having chaotic, non-supportive and often abusive interpersonal relationship, extensive treatment or substance abuse histories, sporadic work and educational experience, and an anti-social value system.  Counseling is provided regularly as are employment and educational services.  The most important goal of our program is to prevent relapse and to promote personal responsability and positive character change.  We also provide services to those clients who have a concomitant psychiatric problems.   Helping them through a multidisciplinary treatment, will help them improve the quality of their lives.  We provide services to all individuals 18 years of age and older without regard to national origin, race, ethnical or religious background, but with emphasis on the monolingual hispanic population.












Measurable Outcome Anticipated:






This program will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week assisting patients for 61 days of intensive treatment with authorized extensions.
