Adult substance abuse services

Rosecrance believes strongly in the capability and power of you, as an individual, to recover. By choosing to enter treatment, you have taken the essential first step toward your recovery. Your treatment program will include group, individual and family counseling. Group activities include educational/didactic lectures, team building/recreational activities, spirituality, education, counseling and 12 Step education.

We are committed to providing a variety of services to meet the needs of our patients and their families. Your length of stay in all treatment programs is dependent on your progress and accomplishment of treatment goals — as determined by you, your counselor and, when appropriate, your family.
