Clients have the freedom to create their own schedule however the Monday morning group is for women only. Groups range between 15 and 17 clients.
Group topics include relapse prevention, medication use, intimacy issues, communication skills, behavioral insights, support systems, healthy relationships, life skills and substance addiction and the brain. During the support systems group, clients learn about 12-step, SMART Recovery and other peer-based recovery support networks. Clients are encouraged to try different meetings until they find a group that best suits their needs and comfort level.

The family program is eight weeks in length and offered on a rotating basis, so individuals can join any time they wish. It focuses on self-care, building empathy, family dynamics, healthy boundaries, conflict resolution and prioritization and the disease of addiction.
Aftercare varies per client but typically includes one weekly group session and individual therapy.
Aviary Recovery Center plans to open a residential treatment facility in the near future.
The Aviary Recovery Center is aware that addicts and alcoholics often isolate, and during therapy, clients develop skills that help them connect with others, as well as connect with their inner selves. For those requiring a comprehensive and unique program that really delves deep into the psyche of addiction, the Aviary Recovery Center might be the a great match.
