Shadow Mountain Recovery Day Treatment Program allows people that might not have the funding to pay for residential care through insurance, at a lessor cost, and obtain treatment that is very similar to a residential model, which gives way to a good transition from residential to day treatment, following the idea of a continuum of care. The day treatment program consists of a 30-60 day process. Shadow Mountain Recovery has an Evening Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). This program meets four nights a week from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Intensive IOP is a program for clients that are in the early stages of addiction and are able to function with day-to-day activities, but still need the opportunity and therapeutic process to guide them into recovery and help stabilize their life away from addiction. Shadow Mountain Recovery also has Therapeutic Sober Homes for men and women. The homes are unlike many seen across the states. They are located in safe neighborhoods, are clean, beautifully decorated, and comfortably furnished all in an effort to create an atmosphere that helps our residents feel at home. The Therapeutic Sober homes are different than traditional sober living homes in that they have structured, daily schedules that must be followed by the residents that are staying in the home.
Alpha Recovery is a supportive, structured living environment for addicts who are new in their recovery. Clients are subject to nightly curfews, random urine screens, and are required to attend Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings on a regular basis, in addition to weekly groups and individual sessions at Alpha Recovery. Clients are required to work, unless there is a physical or mental disability, which prevents them from doing so.
The formation of the Alpha Recovery program is a culmination of ideas and
Alpha Recovery recognizes that the disease of addiction affects the addict physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and that the success of any program of recovery lies in daily commitment to a twelve-step program. Alpha Recovery believes that regular attendance and application of the spiritual principles of these programs are the foundations for that success. The Alpha Recovery staff is made up of people who are professional treatment providers and/or recovering addicts, themselves. We are available to clients to help in teaching the twelve steps and the practical application of these principles in daily living. The programs of A.A. and N.A. teach us that there will come a time when nothing will stand between the addict and a drink or a drug but his relationship with his Higher Power. We, therefore, encourage spiritual growth.
Our treatment model, a continuum of care, offers the highest possibilities for positive outcomes, while holding clients accountable through various levels of care. All current research coming out of the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) and our follow-up data shows that comprehensive drug treatment is cost effective and enhances community safety. The research has repeatedly shown that the longer the length of time in treatment, the higher the likelihood of positive outcomes. The longer the time a client is drug free and working on prosocial versus criminal values, the greater the changes that an individual can make.
Many of the individuals served by our facilities have repeatedly paid the social consequence of prison for their illegal drug use and crime. Treatment affords our clients the possibility of reclaiming their lives and recovery, our reintegration services and drug free housing turn the present into the hopes for a future.
Treatment Trends, Inc., admits clients to treatment without regard to race, color, religious creed, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.

What is a sober house (a/k/a 3/4 house) and why are they important?
A sober house, also called a ¾ house, recovery house, or transitional living facility houses individuals recovering from alcoholism and drug addiction in order for them to focus on their recovery. Its residents are individuals coming directly from rehabilitation or 12-step programs, halfway houses, inpatient treatment facilities or those who simply want to have a sober environment to aid them in their transition. Sober houses provide a valuable method in assisting individuals in their long-term recovery from drug addiction and alcoholism, allowing recovering alcoholics and addicts a place to live a normal life while they continue their recovery.
What are common characteristics of a sober house?
The following are the chief characteristics of a sober house:
Residents live in or work out provided they follow the house rules.
It promotes 12-Step programs
It has a secured, safe and competent structure intended for the long-term recovery of individuals.
It has a 24-hour house manager and staff that implement the programs and exercises close supervision.
What is the difference between a halfway house and a sober house?
A sober house is an inexpensive drug and alcohol- free environment where the alcoholic or drug addict can obtain support from peer groups. In general, the rules at a halfway house are stricter than the rules at a sober house (sometimes called a 3/4 house). It provides a positive environment for recovering addicts and alcoholics to receive the emotional support they need from residents going through the same experiences. Experts agree that both halfway houses and sober houses (also referred to together as recovery housing or transitional living) are very important tools to use in one's lifelong recovery journey.
A halfway house imposes strict regulations for its residents in order to mitigate the chances of relapse. Residents are required to sign the house rules contract that includes the policy against bringing alcoholic drinks and prohibited drugs, and requires the adherence to curfew and similar rules. Noncompliance to the house rules subjects a resident to removal from the halfway house.
What things should I look for in evaluating sober homes?
Safe, secure and drug-free. The sober house must have the necessary permit to ensure fire safety and building security. Unwarranted intrusions from outsiders must be eliminated. Alcohols and drugs should be strictly prohibited within the premises.
Strict, written rules and guidelines. This is to ensure that the residents will have a structured environment that will minimize the possibility of relapse.
Supportive staff available 24x7. There must be a manager or a staff member to answer the needs of the residents 24/7.
12-Steps or comparable programs. Twelve Step programs are vital methods in alcoholism and drug addiction recovery. The residents must be trained to be accountable for their actions so that they will be able to cope up with the challenges that await them in the outside world.
