South Bend IndianaChoices Recovery Review

Located in South Bend, Indiana Choices Recovery provides adult men and women a variety of programs for treatment of substance abuse. Clients receive individualized treatment plans that integrate a broad range of modalities, including the 12-step approach, SMART Recovery, faith-based and holistic techniques. The tailored programs offer a continuum of care that can include residential treatment in 30, 60 or 90-day versions, a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and additional outpatient services.

Accommodations and Food

Located in a suburban neighborhood, the facility accommodates all clients as well as clinical services in one building. It is well maintained and pleasant with warm colors and a landscaped garden. Rooms are shared with one other client of the same gender and include all linens as well as adjoining bathrooms. Clients can relax in the common and meetings areas, which are furnished with large sofas and TVs, or workout at the large, fully equipped gym. A private Chef prepares all meals in the on-site industrial kitchen and ensures personal nutritional goals are maintained.

Treatment and Staff

A counselor performs initial assessments and offers a recommendation for treatment. If needed, clients undergo medically monitored detox and mental health evaluation to address co-occurring disorders. Ongoing medication management and psychiatric reviews provide dual diagnosis support.

While in residential treatment, clients participate in weekly individual and daily gender-specific group therapy. Though SMART Recovery is most commonly utilized, AA/NA meetings and Celebrate Recovery programs are available, with clients able to attend religious service if they choose. Each of these programs ultimately focuses on replacing addictive thinking patterns with new ones, learning effective communication strategies and how to regulate emotions.

Regardless of the length in residential care, many clients choose to step down to the PHP or IOP to ease the transition to independent living. These programs continue the individualized approach of Choices Recovery and include clients entering outpatient programs as primary care. Clients remain in each phase for as long as they need, typically taking six months to complete the continuum of care.

Outpatient clients participate in a variety of therapeutic modalities that decrease in frequency as progress is made. These include group therapy and educational sessions that focus on peer-support and relationship building, gender-specific process groups that provide a safe space to discuss concerns and family groups. Self-help and 12-step programs are included for ongoing relapse prevention and support. Though time in each phase varies, the PHP is typically five to seven days a week, the IOP three to five and the outpatient one or two. PHP and IOP sessions are around six hours in length, while outpatient sessions drop to three.

In addition to a medical team, CACs, LADCs, activities therapists and specialty contracted staff provide around the clock care.


As part of holistic treatment, nutritional counseling is offered, along with Chinese medicine and acupuncture. The life skills training classes foster responsibility while teaching essential tools like budgeting, work ethic, GED readiness training, vocational skills and job seeking techniques.

In Summary

Choices Recovery lives up to its name with with a broad variety of offerings and several treatment lengths. Clients can tailor programs specifically to their needs, incorporating many therapeutic modalities. Choices Recovery provides a solid foundation for recovery through the range of evidence-based practices, delivered in a supportive environment.
