When You Arrive

Someone from our admissions team who has been in your shoes, will be there to greet you on our property. A bed will  be made up with fresh linens along with a towel and washcloth. A brief intake interview will be conducted to ensure we have all the information we need to provide you with the best care. Often a current guest on property will give you a tour of the grounds so you know where everything is located. This also encourages and allows the guest giving the tour to be of service. That’s how our program works.

You will get out what you put in.

As with most important changes in life, recovery requires willingness and action on your part. The first day of treatment can be emotionally difficult, but it is also the start of a whole new life without the bondage of drugs and alcohol. That will be up to you. We recommend an attitude of open mindedness and willingness.
