Pathways goal is to provide a comfortable, family atmosphere in a peaceful therapeutic setting. Pathways is a dual diagnosis facility that specializes in treating addiction with mental illness. Residents' physical, mental, and spiritual needs are met through our clinical program, where we provide the tools and guidance needed to journey on a safe path. We believe in treating the whole person and offer our residents opportunities to engage in services that reflect our compassion, understanding and treatment. Our clinical team of substance abuse and mental health counselors help establish individualized treatment plans that are reviewed on a weekly basis. We also offer guidance and solutions to sometimes very complex challenges in a safe and comfortable setting.
Pathways offers a high-intensity (28-day) and low-intensity (90-day) residential treatment program. Length of stay does vary based on progress made in meeting treatment goals. Actual discharge date is determined on an individual based on each resident's best interests.
Families are an integral part of the healing process. We encourage family members to attend our Family Group Sessions held on every Saturday, which includes our Family Alumni group on the third Saturday of each month. Each family group provides an opportunity to increase support, provide experiences, and education in order to maintain the personal connections needed with this complicated disease. Each resident and their family is treated with dignity, respect, and privacy by all staff and fellow residents.
