Colonial House Programs and Services


Inpatient Program

Our 90 day program is designed to aid chemically dependent people who require more time and structure to develop the skills and resources necessary to maintain recovery. A full treatment schedule consists of daily group therapy, individual counseling, family consults, lectures and workshops, and relapse prevention.

Clients attend Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous meetings daily and are given the opportunity to begin practicing 12 step recovery & work through the stumbling blocks of early recovery, while still in a structured counseling environment.

i_ip_relapse  Relapse Prevention Training

Relapse Prevention Training is offered weekly and based on Evidenced Based Program.  The client will learn symptoms and warning sign recognition and the importance of utilizing a support group.  The clients will learn what they need to be aware of and how to prevent relapse from happening. 

i_ip_indiv-counseling  Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling sessions are mandatory at least one time a week. However, should the counselor conclude the need, additional sessions will be scheduled. 

i_ip_group-therapy  Group Therapy

These groups are held by the clients’ individual counselor 4 times a week. On average, a small group consists of 8 members. The smaller size of these groups promotes an atmosphere of closeness, a higher trust level and encourages more risk taking. It also allows for peer input. We also have separate men and women’s groups that focus on the TREM (Trauma Recovery Empowerment Model) one day per week. 

i_ip_family-support  Family Support and Involvement

Family members are encouraged to meet with loved ones and their counselor during their stay at Colonial House. We also offer a family educational group.

i_ip_education Personal Education

This part of the client’s experience at Colonial House is in the form of films, tapes, reading assignments, lectures and other interaction within the community. Daily education group sessions play a major role in his/her recovery process, along with daily attendance of AA/NA meetings.

i_ip_family-education Family Education Workshops

Family members are strongly encouraged to attend the Colonial House Family Program. Topics include: addiction, anger, family roles, relapse process, home contracts and codependency. There are counselors on duty to meet the needs or concerns the family may have. These workshops are not attended by the clients. This allows the loved ones the freedom to openly share their questions and concerns.
