Accommodations and Food

The 12-step philosophy is the foundation of treatment but other evidence-based modalities, like CBT and motivational enhancement therapy (MET), are used as well. Upon admission, clients go through a psycho-social history assessment, which helps counselors determine an individualized treatment plan; consisting of individual and group therapy, life skills and vocational skills education. Harbor House also offers non-medically supervised detox and support for dual diagnosis.
The program put a large emphasis on family support, hosting weekly sessions where friends and relatives can learn more about the disease of addiction.
For those seeking addiction treatment in the Memphis area, Harbor House offers a solid program at a very affordable price. With their use of 12-step and evidence-based treatments, and added emphasis on nutrition and family wellness, this South Memphis facility a substantial jumping off point for long-term recovery. Not only is their 90-days of treatment a huge plus but their available sober living option can be an invaluable resource for those struggling in early sobriety.
