Group Rules & Guidelines

In order to receive a clinical discharge you must complete all program requirements.

You will be required to attend anywhere from 20 to 89 hours of group sessions. Sessions will be held on Wednesday nights from 5:30 pm-7:30 pm and Saturdays from 9:00 am-11:00 am. You may attend up to 4 hours a week.

The cost for treatment is $100 per individual session or $40 per group session. You must be paid in full in order for treatment to be complete. NO information will be reported until you have met your financial obligation. Your signature indicates that you are agreeing to pay the amount stated above for this treatment program. Failure to pay within 90 days of discharge may result in termination of treatment, reporting of debt to collection agency and/or legal action.

You will not be permitted to attend group if you have been drinking or using drugs. Money will not be refunded if you come to treatment under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.

You must remain ABSTINENT during the course of treatment. This means that you will be expected not to drink any alcoholic beverages or use any mood or mind altering drugs. If you do not remain abstinent you will be re-assessed and possibly placed in a higher level of treatment. You must submit upon request to a test for the detection of controlled substances and pay the costs of the test.

Treatment will consist of an educational lecture or video followed by a group activity. You may have a brief break in between. Leaving group before dismissal will result in an absence.

You may not bring guests or children to treatment. If someone brings you, they may drop you off and return 15 minutes before your session ends.

Disruptive and/or inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. This agency does not partake in illegal activity. A counselor or staff member may remove you from the group should they feel that you are disruptive or inappropriate.

You will be expected to treat other group members and staff with respect and keep confidential all information discussed in group.

Our staff is expected to treat other group members and staff with respect and keep confidential all information discussed in group.

Treatment takes effort. You must come to at least one session per week. You will be permitted one absence. If you miss more than one session, you may be required to begin your program all over again. You may be charged an additional $100 to re-enter treatment.

If you have questions about any of the above information, please ask the counselor before signing any document.
