Our Policies

The policies of Next Generation Village reflect our mission — to ensure the full recovery of our clients in a safe and comfortable atmosphere.

Calendar Icon

Length of Stay

The length of rehab varies by patient based on individual needs, clinical progress and clinical recommendations. We assess the patient’s progress throughout the treatment program and maintain communication with insurance providers for recommended levels of care.

Cellphone icon

Client Phone Policy

Cell phones are not permitted during treatment. Beginning on the day of admission, clients will be on a seven-day “blackout” period, with no outside contact, though a family member will be notified of their loved one’s status during this time. After the blackout period, clients can use their phones during non-clinical hours on assigned days.

Family Communication

Communication with family is sustained through telephonic sessions between client and family, face-to-face sessions on campus, or even during Family Weekends, hosted by the facility.

Emphasis on Education

Next Generation Village understands the importance of education, especially for residents of their community. While overcoming substance habits is the primary focus of residents at Next Generation Village, they still are expected to keep up with their schoolwork. Our facility employs tutors who work with a students’ school district to maintain their education during treatment.

Food and Nutrition

Breakfast at Next Generation Village is a nutritious combination of grains, proteins and fresh fruits. These items may include bagels with cream cheese, scrambled eggs made to your liking, mixed fruit and juice or milk.

After a full and productive morning, a healthy meal is in order. Lunches at Next Generation Village vary by day and generally consist of sandwiches, soup or salad and another side item, drinks and a dessert. Daily specials range from Philly cheese sandwiches to oven-fried chicken.

For dinner, Next Generation Village provides an assortment of meats and pastas, macaroni and cheese, tilapia and a “Make Your Own Dinner and Dessert” option. Greens, soup and salads, brown rice and sautéed cabbage are also offered.

Food Menu

Our dieticians prepare specialized meals that are as appetizing as they are nutritional to ensure you develop healthy eating habits during your stay with us.

Therapy Options

Next Generation Village offers a variety of therapy avenues, conducted by mental health professionals with extensive backgrounds. Therapy options include:

  • Individual sessions with a therapist up to three times a week
  • Group therapy sessions that cover a range of issues facing the modern-day teenager
  • Psycho-educational training, including relapse prevention, life skills, and cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Yoga therapy
  • Equine therapy
  • 12-step meetings, both in the facility and in the community

Clients will meet regularly with a psychiatrist to discuss how medications can help them in their treatment.

Co-Occurring Disorder Diagnosis

Our medical team screens incoming residents for psychological issues beyond substance abuse. If a co-occurring disorder is found, our treatment team will determine the effects of the disorder on the substance abuse problem and treat both simultaneously. Co-occurring disorders may include:

  • Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia
  • Mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder
  • Personality disorders, such as borderline and dependent personality disorders
  • Process addictions, such as shopping, video gaming, and gambling disorders

Our Treatment Programs

With various treatment options and levels of care offered, you can determine which path is right for you and your family. All psychiatric evaluations are completed by trained psychiatrists, psychiatric advanced registered nurse practitioners, or psychiatric PAs.

detox icon


Teens who try to break a drug habit on their own may feel physically ill or psychologically distressed in the process. Next Generation Village eliminates the harmful chemicals from your body in a less stressful manner.

The first step to sobriety is eliminating the drugs from your system. The medical team at Next Generation Village oversees detox programs that employ soothing therapies and medications to boost your resolve and keep you sober for the long haul. Our clinical staff members monitor clients around the clock to ease withdrawal symptoms.

inpatient icon

Intensive Inpatient

Our facility offers intensive inpatient treatment, designed for medical and psychiatric stabilization.

Intensive inpatient treatment includes: eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness meditation, motivational interviewing, active listening, family systems, coping skills, relapse prevention planning, 12-step work, Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings and psychoeducation.

Individuals are usually in intensive inpatient care for 5 to 7 days, with programming every day. Medication may continue for prolonged detox, if necessary, or for medical or psychiatric stabilization purposes.

Once completed, the client transitions to residential care.

house icon


Getting away from home and school can be effective in learning to deal with the stresses those environments bring. In our residential program, teens live with their peers — detached from their daily lives — to learn how to deal with the world in a healthy manner.

Residential treatment provides clinical services similar to those of intensive inpatient, as well as life skills and healthy relationships and boundaries.

Clients attend residential care for 7 to 10 days, on average, with programming every day.

outpatient icon


Teens with a strong support system at home can benefit from outpatient care. This treatment option allows you to live at home and participate in a series of appointments sponsored by Next Generation Village, rather than receiving around-the-clock care at the facility. This way, you can learn how to live a substance-free life without formal residential care.

house icon

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

A pillar of outpatient care, the IOP is a more comprehensive option than traditional outpatient care. Through the program, teens spend several more hours per week at support group meetings, during which they can also complete homework assignments. The program features 3 to 5 three-hour sessions per week.

Teens with more intense addiction histories might engage in these programs.

Clients are in intensive outpatient treatment for an average of 14 to 18 days.

hospital icon

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

A partial hospitalization program works for teens who need intense treatment and therapy during the day but have a stable home life to return to at night. Partial hospitalization programs offer access to mental health experts and medications that assist in fighting addiction.

Clients are usually in this level of treatment for 14 to 20 days. Medications are continued as needed for medical and psychiatric stabilization.

speech bubbles icon


Representatives of Next Generation Village understand that addiction is a disease that may linger throughout a person’s lifetime. Cravings never go away. Therefore, the treatment center offers aftercare, provided on an outpatient basis, to prevent teens from relapsing. In these follow-up counseling sessions, teens can examine new pressures they face upon returning to their communities, including trauma, peer pressure, school, work, life responsibilities and family conflicts.
