Treatment and Staff
Dragonfly does not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to treatment. Before beginning the program, clients undergo a comprehensive intake health assessment that includes medical and psychological components. Students speak at length with the intake team about their current circumstances and history of substance use. From there, the Dragonfly team designs the most effective possible personalized treatment plan tailored to address the specific needs and goals of the person. Clients also meet with the academic director to determine the best course of action. Students are put in a position to succeed socially, therapeutically and academically. While the length of stay varies from person to person, students typically participate in Dragonfly for between nine and 12 months. Their stay at Ashland depends on their needs.
