The first six months focus on gaining the skills needed to attain and maintain sobriety, with the remainder of the program developing job readiness, relationship, and other life skills. Services include alcohol and drug education, counseling, and 12 step support groups. Spiritual growth, including Bible study, chapel services, and religious counseling, is a key component of the program.
