Levels of Care

Partial Hospitalization

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) uses comprehensive treatment and therapy to help patients achieve physical and mental stability. This program allows patients to receive treatment during the day and go to a sober living environment at night. PHP generally involves less patient monitoring than seen in traditional inpatient care.


Through our outpatient services, patients learn to live free of drugs and alcohol. Individuals receive care in a safe, healthy and supportive environment. Clients in outpatient care receive services that include:

  • Individual therapy once a week
  • One group session a week
  • Access to on-site 12-step meetings

People in outpatient treatment do not reside at the facility and are free to go to work and socialize with friends and family during recovery.

Intensive Outpatient

Our intensive outpatient services offer flexibility and freedom to patients who have completed residential treatment. Recovery services in the intensive outpatient program include:

  • Individual therapy once a week
  • Group sessions three times a week
  • On-site 12-step meetings
  • Psychiatric appointments

These services provide an opportunity to build the skills needed to maintain recovery.

Three-Phase System Provides Structure

Patients at Next Step Village progress through a three-phase system of rules and requirements. This structure aims to promote self-esteem, trust, accountability and respect among residents.

The first phase lasts 30 to 60 days. During this time, patients must attend weekly house meetings and daily 12-step gatherings, obtain a sponsor within a week of arrival and search for employment. Curfew is set for 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and for 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

The second phase lasts 60 to 90 days. Residents must meet the requirements set during phase 1 as well as new goals. They also attend five 12-step meetings per week and continue to engage in weekly programming. During this time, curfew is set for 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and for midnight Friday and Saturday. Residents may obtain weekend passes from their house manager.

The final phase lasts 120 days through discharge. During this time, patients must continue to meet the requirements set during phase 2. Patients are expected to attend a minimum of three 12-step meetings every week and mentor a phase 1 housemate. Residents do not have a curfew, but should report their whereabouts to their house manager.

The recommended length of stay at Next Step Village is seven months to one year.
