Going on Passes
If your loved one is in high-intensity care, she can only leave the treatment center if it’s medically necessary. In our regular residential treatment, counselors make individual decisions about passes and the duration of each pass. These visits are only for therapeutic purposes such as attending support groups or visiting family or friends to practice new skills.
What to Expect After Someone Has Gone to Treatment
Addiction is a chronic disease much like multiple sclerosis, diabetes or COPD. Someone is not healed from the disease of addiction by receiving one round of treatment.

It is also important for women to receive continued care and to commit to the long road of recovery. Learn how to support your family member when she returns home
