ETP (Evening Treatment Program)


Harbor Lights Evening Treatment Program (ETP) is modeled after one of the latest forms of alcohol/ drug treatment that has proven highly successful for many individuals.

The ETP involves a series of group sessions during a 12 week period, followed by an aftercare program.  Each evening session is educational in regard to addition and the second is a discussion/ therapy portion.  It is scheduled at times that are convenient for most individuals aand designed to prove the least amount of interruption in the daily responsibilities of most individuals and families.

Who Can Use This Program?

Many individuals with special needs or in unique situations along with individuals seeking basic primary treatment, find this program meets their needs.

The added intensity of the program seems to enhance recovery for individuals just entering treatment as well as those who have had problems with chronic relapsing.  This program is also used as an alternative to inpatient rehabilitation or as a continuation of shortened inpatient stays.

All individuals are  initially evaluated to determine the appropriateness of this program for meeting their needs.
