Our level system is designed to promote advancement through sowing the rewards of positive change, directly countering the behaviors and attitudes associated with substance use. 

Our therapeutic community of peers is built to develop a culture focused on recovery, as clients actively practice skills learned in therapy throughout all their interactions and with each other. 

Some aspects of our program capitalize on community integration as early as orientation (Recreation, physical fitness activities). As privileges are gained through level advancement, opportunities to further develop their own recovery lifestyle, based on explored interests and experiences, become appropriate interventions to instill enduring change. 

A major focus of our program is to aid our clients in self-discovery. In higher level advancement, personal preferences for healthy lifestyle and activities become the focus and discovering resources from their own community to aid in continuing their recovery-oriented lifestyle is shared with transition teams combining their local outpatient therapists, families, and others interested in their success.
