Archway Communities, Inc.


Long Term Residential Program

The Program
"In Its Own Words"

STATISTICS

Self Description:

"A rigorous, practical, highly structured program which blends the self-help and professional methods of treatment."


Treatment Philosophy:

"Drug dependence is an enslaving dysfunction that yields to treatment, best provided by recovering persons who also are professionally trained."


Approach to Dual Diagnosis:

"CD and mental illness are naturally co-occurring, and across this population can be either a cause or a consequence of each other. Both are seen as diseases with behavioral and biological components."


Family Program:

"Our Family program educates family members about the behavioral and biological aspects of CD and works to break the codependency/blaming cycle."


Position on 12 Step Involvement:

"Involvement in AA/NA groups is crucial to recovery. It is necessary but not sufficient."


Position on Confrontation:

"Confrontation is an important educational component that breaks down denial."


Additional Characteristics:

"Most of our counselors are self-described addicts in recovery who also have professional training and credentials."
