Our Treatment Programs
We offer multiple levels of addiction care to make sure our clients are able to recover regardless of the progression of their addiction and substance abuse.
Our Treatment Programs
At Absolute Awakenings, you’ll find that there are varying levels of care. We offer comprehensive treatment options led by medical and clinical experts. Our programs include Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, and Aftercare Services.
Partial Hospitalization Programs
Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) are also referred to as day programs. PHPs are the second level of intensive care. The main difference between PHP and residential treatment is that patients do not need to reside at the facility.
Instead, recovering individuals will travel to our center for several hours each day, three to five days per week. If you have a stable and supportive home environment, partial hospitalization may be exactly what you need. You’ll be offered many of the same services as residential treatment, such as evidence-based therapies and medical care.
Partial hospitalization may also be ideal for those who want to prevent the need for inpatient rehabilitation. It’s a common misconception that rehab should only be attended when the addiction is at its most severe point. However, it’s crucial to tackle addiction as early as possible.
Outpatient rehabilitation is the most flexible option out of the levels of care at rehab. During this kind of treatment, patients will travel to the facility for treatment then return home after. Scheduled sessions will take place based on the individual’s availability. Outpatient treatment may be used as the core treatment or as a step-down level of care.
If you have serious responsibilities, you must attend; outpatient programs may be just what you need. For instance, you have a child at home that you must take care of. In other cases, you may be taking classes at school that you can’t miss. Whatever the case may be, we work around your schedule to get you the help that you deserve.
The amount of commitment required will vary based on the treatment program. Outpatient programs can range from one session a week to several sessions a day, five days a week. After an in-depth evaluation, we’ll create a compatible structure that suits your treatment needs best.
Mental Health Services During Addiction Recovery
No matter the level of care, mental health services are a crucial part of the addiction recovery process. To treat addiction, it must be looked at from a physical and mental perspective. The individual must be treated as a whole, factoring in their physical, mental, and emotional well being. Oftentimes, those with addiction also suffer from a mental health disorder. That’s why mental health care is a key component in treatment.
As stated by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), a “dual diagnosis” is a term for a person who experiences a mental illness and a substance use disorder simultaneously. Dual-diagnosis can also be referred to as a “co-occurring disorder” because both the addiction and mental health issues coincide. A dual-diagnosis treatment will incorporate evidence-based therapies within each level of care.
Depending on the disorder, the exact approach will vary. Common mental health disorders that can be treated along with addiction include, but are not limited to:
- Bipolar Disorder

all the way through.
Many members of our treatment team are in recovery themselves so we understand what you’re going through.
Aftercare planning is another vital aspect of the recovery process. Aftercare planning works to prevent a relapse, as well as maintain sobriety after treatment at the facility ends. There are different levels of care within aftercare, as well.
It can be something as simple as attending a recovery meeting once a week, to partaking in a step-down form of treatment. Kindly see below for some of the different options when it comes to aftercare planning.
Sober Living Homes
Transitioning from treatment may seem like an overwhelming step. You may find yourself having doubts about recovery or second-guessing yourself. This is completely normal! We’d like to emphasize that recovery is a journey. There are various components to treatment from the beginning through the end.
Sober living homes are one of the options in the levels of continuum care. These facility-based homes require residents to follow strict rules. These rules include no substance abuse, mandatory house meetings, regular drug screening, and participation in household chores. The goal of these rules is to set up recovering individuals for long-term future success.
Support groups are a major component in addiction recovery. Support and encouragement from peers help you along this journey. In addition to getting support from others, you’re also able to give support. This mutual relationship in support groups is an enormous positive.
Support groups include meetings such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Al-Anon, as well as Dual Recovery Anonymous. For those seeking more science-based programs, SMART Recovery offers a secular approach. No matter the type of addiction, there’s a support group that can help you. There are even recovery meetings for the loved ones surrounding a recovering individual.
The goal of a case manager is to act as your mentor and supporter throughout the recovery process. Case managers can serve as advocates, guides, and counselors. You may have a lot of questions during the recovery process. These questions may be centered around family life, career choices, rebuilding relationships, and much more.
Case managers are here to help you navigate all of these concerns. One of the main advantages of any level of care is the support that you receive from the recovery center. No matter who you are, we’ll welcome you with open arms.
