Friendship House (High- and Low-Intensity Residential Treatment)

Residential Treatment programs are designed to provide individuals a high- or low-intensity level of care in a safe, structured environment to prepare clients to successfully live life without the use of substances. Admission is on a voluntary basis. Length of stay is individually determined by clinical indicators using the nationally recognized American Society on Addiction Medicine (ASAM) placement criteria.

Short-Term Residential  

Our short-term residential substance abuse treatment program, also referred to as Clinically Managed High-Intensity Residential Treatment (CMHIRT), is designed to assist individuals who require a more intensive level of service in a structured setting and/or individuals that may be homeless. Our program is highly structured and focuses on the onset, progression, and neurochemistry of Addiction. Admission is on a voluntary basis. Although the length of stay is determined by clinical indicators, the average length of stay is expected to be approximately 28 days or less. Stabilization services are provided once medical clearance has been met.

Transitional Living Program (TLP)

Our TLP residential substance abuse treatment program, also referred to as Clinically Managed Low-Intensity Residential Treatment (CMLIRT), is designed to support individuals in the early stages of recovery that need this residential level of care and/or are homeless. The goal of these programs is to prepare the individual to become self-sufficient in the community. The average length of stay is expected to be approximately 90 days or less.
