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 length of stay is determined by clinical indicators, 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 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. Average length of stay is expected to be approximately 90 days or less.

Impaired Driver Care Management Program

Individuals convicted of an impaired driving offense are required to attend and participate in a New Hampshire approved Impaired Driver Care Management Program (IDCMP) for a screening and evaluation to determine if there is a substance use disorder and to participate in treatment, education and/or recovery support services.
