The men’s primary treatment focus is on education, assessment, engagement, and relapse prevention. Douglas Place offers special focus groups to address denial, mental health (co-occurring disorders), and self-esteem. The establishment of a sober support system, with an emphasis on family engagement, is encouraged and supported throughout treatment. There is a focus on the development and implementation of independent sober living skills on a daily basis. Continuing Care is utilized at an outpatient level and assists clients to integrate back into their home community following residential treatment.

Young Adult

Our Young Adult Program provides treatment to young adults ages 16-20. The unit houses up to 14 individuals. The young adult unit offers both single and double bedrooms, all with private bathrooms, TVs, and refrigerators.

Our Young Adult Program focuses on assessment, engagement, and the establishment and involvement of a support system prior to the young adult’s integration back into the community. We have social workers on staff that will help assist the young adult in establishing their support network and work with them to transition from Douglas Place back into their home community. Education groups are conducted in an interactive and entertaining manner, ensuring client engagement and internalization of the information. Recreational activities are a regular and consistent part of the program, helping the young adult become engaged in chemical-free activities.

Special focus groups are an important part of the Young Adult Program, focusing on gender-specific issues. One of the curricula being used is “Voices” by Stephanie Covington. Gender-specific groups help the young adult establish their individual identity. In addition, cognitive restructuring groups are available and are a great benefit to the young adult. Schooling needs and requirements will be met by the local school district.

Halfway House/Transitional Housing

Transitional Living Treatment Unit has up to 42 male clients. The rooms are single occupancy with doublebeds. All rooms have TV’s, refrigerators and phones. The primary focus of the Transitional Living unit is the development and implementation of independent sober living skills on a daily basis. The unit has a three phase level system. Orientation phase the first 2 weeks, with the goal being engagement/orientation to program schedule and expectations. Phase I goal is to utilize the employment seeking skills, taught in the weekly jobs groups, seeking employment, school or volunteer work a minimum of 10 hrs. peer week.  Once a client has secured employment, school or volunteer work they present a written request to enter Phase II, which carries more responsibility and independence/privileges. Those who have past felony charges on their record, making it difficult to gain employment attend the “felony jobs” group. All halfway house clients are responsible to pass room check on a daily basis. If they are not employed/seeking employment, school or volunteer work they are required to complete a therapeutic task on a daily basis. All halfway house clients submit a weekly schedule for review and approval on a weekly basis. All clients are encouraged and assisted to develop a “balanced recovery program”.
