Description:Samaritan Village has specifically designed residential treatment services to meet the needs of adults with chronic substance abuse histories. Our residential treatment programs provide intensive, highly structured treatment environments using the therapeutic community model as their foundation. Program participants are immersed in community and family-systems oriented settings. Through the combination of peer pressure, self and mutual help, and support, program participants have daily opportunities to develop new, prosocial attitudes and behaviors. Samaritan offers an expansive array of treatment services, including group and individual addiction-focused counseling, mental health services, employment skills training and basic education. Our motivational counseling approach instills a value for personal excellence through abstinence, thus promoting relapse prevention. Samaritan's residential treatment programs have a proven record of successful outcomes with a planned treatment duration between 12-18 months. In all cases, however, length of stay is ultimately determined by individual attainment of distinct treatment goals.
