Clinical Stabilization Services (CSS) – CSS is a short-term structured residential program for people who have recently stopped using substances and are in need of intense stabilization services. This program is appropriate for individuals who have recently completed detoxification or for those who are not currently using substances but are at risk for relapse. The purpose of this program is to bridge the gap between detoxification and further treatment and to stabilize individuals while an individual treatment plan for each client is developed. CSS programs include a range of counseling and other services.

Transitional Support Services (TSS) – TSS is a rehab program for men and women who are no longer experiencing physical withdrawal from drugs and alcohol. This program helps those who need a controlled environment to maintain sobriety. Key elements of the program include an integrated daily schedule to help clients learn skills to sustain recovery and the development of a transition plan to help clients find a suitable placement for continuation of treatment.

Halfway Houses – Halfway houses provide a structured, substance-free environment with clinical and peer support. These residential programs are for individuals who recently completed an impatient treatment program but still need structure and support in their recovery. Residents are encouraged to integrate with the community and are expected to engage in education, vocational training, or work, and are assisted to do so.
