ETP (Evening Treatment Program)

Evening Treatment Program (ETP)

The 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 consists of 2 components, Evening Treatment Education and Evening Treatment Cognitive. Each participate begins in education for two days per week for a 12-week period. After completion of this group, the participate gets staffed and switched into the cognitive group which is one day per week for a 12-week period.  It is scheduled at times that are convenient for most individuals and designed to prove the least amount of interruption in the daily responsibilities of most individuals and families.
