Clinical Stabilization
A major function of our Level 2 residential unit is to provide Structured Clinical Stabilization. Clinical stabilization is an intensive form of treatment that can be provided in either a structured or unstructured environment based upon the individual’s presenting needs. The goal of clinical stabilization is to stop the drug use over a sustained period of time.

The program uses a strong “Peer Pull-Up” regimen that leverages collective lived experiences and peer support.
