449 Recovery is a co-ed dual diagnosis treatment center that specifically addresses addiction as a maladaptive form of coping with any underlying mental health issues that may be present. Clients typically partake in a 90-day program, however, treatment lengths may vary depending on their needs. Each program is family-oriented, and clients are treated in a supportive environment that emphasizes community and the help of loved ones or peers to address long-term recovery. Some of the available treatment options include cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma therapy, motivational interviewing, psychotherapy, family sculpting, psychodrama, dialectical behavior therapy, medication management, and life skills training. Group therapies are extremely important components of treatment at 449 Recovery since they do only offer outpatient rehab programs, so clients will work with their peers to explore topics such as trauma, vocational needs, and spirituality.
