Residential Rehabilitation Program

Our four-six week residential rehabilitation program (which includes Case Management and a treatment/early intervention plan) has been developed by experts to counter the effects of long-term substance use and to give our clients the best chance to overcome their addiction.

Watershed provides 24-hour support and supervision for our clients who must have completed a detox (either at Watershed or another facility) before entering the rehabilitation program.

Individual attention is critical, so every client is assigned to a primary caseworker on admission, ensuring that he or she receives valuable one-on-one time and that treatment is constantly monitored and adjusted as required to meet his or her unique needs.

Our rehab program works, but the success or failure of the program is ultimately up to the client. Watershed is committed to each client’s recovery but clients must be willing to be fully engaged with the program. Staff will support clients to develop the strength and courage in order to complete rehabilitation.

The rehabilitation program includes Group Therapy and Individual Therapy and Casework, all embedded in our Healthy Lifestyle Program.
