Becoming A Resident:

IT ALL STARTS WITH A PHONE CALL.

To enroll please call one of our admissions coordinators, Raven or Kaley, at 731.427.7238 to complete a telephone screening to determine eligibility and level of care. Within this call a wealth of information will be provided.

Our primary expectation is that clients commit 100% to treatment for the best possible results.

Here are some of our most frequently asked questions:

What about my kids and my spouse?

Spouses are not allowed to go through the program at the same time. Once the first spouse has advanced to the three-quarter house, the second spouse can enter residential care. Kids are not allowed to live on campus until their parents have achieved independent living. However, children and spouses can visit at designated times.

What do I need to bring?

CLOTHING: No more than 7 changes of clothes. Clothing should not include: leggings, jeans with holes in them, short shorts, revealing tops, tank tops or any clothing that is offensive and/or drug or alcohol related themed. During warmer months you may bring appropriate length shorts and during the cooler months bring a jacket. Bring no more than 3 pair of shoes and at least one pair should be tennis shoes but no high heels.

HYGIENE PRODUCTS: General hygiene products such as shampoo, deodorant, feminine products and razors however, no product may contain alcohol (i.e. hand sanitizer, mouth wash etc.).

TECHNOLOGY: Please do not bring technological devices such as cell phones or laptops. You should bring all appropriate medications but no mood altering medications or substances.

MONEY: You should bring no more than $30-40 to purchase cigarettes, potential medications and/or for doctor’s appointments.
