3 Phase Approach:

  • Phase 1: This is the entry phase of our residential program to be completed at an Induction Center, for the first 4 months.

  • Phase 2: This is the training phase of our residential program to be completed at a Training Center, for the remaining 8 months.

  • Phase 3: The final phase is a 6 month period of transition that is optional, but required to graduate.  It must be completed as a residential intern or non-residential accountability student.  Accountability is similar to outpatient where the student lives at home and still participates in the program to qualify for graduation.
