What is the Castlewood Difference?
We utilize a comprehensive treatment approach
Our treatment philosophy integrates multiple evidence- based and innovative modalities which are tailored to the unique needs of each client.
We provide care even after you leave Residential Treatment
We have found that most clients need time to practice the skills learned in our Residential Program. To improve success rates, we began a Stepdown Program that allows clients the freedom to practice rebounding from the inevitable slips, while continuing in group and individual therapy. Transitional living is available to clients participating in this program at an additional cost. Clients receive support from peers, implement relapse prevention plans and continue with customized, individual therapy, all while learning new skills in this life launching program. After discharge, our Alumni Relations staff will then contact you monthly for 6 months post-discharge to follow up and monitor your progress.
We encourage family involvement
We schedule an intensive experiential Family Week every 6-8 weeks. Clients invite all interested family members to 3 days of group and individualized treatment. We also schedule additional individualized family therapy, and couples therapy with spouses, between each Family Week.
