Individuals are immediately assigned a case manager and sign a sobriety contract with a promise to remain abstinent and fully vested in the program. Clients are responsible for committing to treatment.
Galax offers individualized care that integrates an array of therapies. While 12-step is the cornerstone of the programming, the facility also utilizes evidence-based practices like CBT as well as psychoeducation and exercise.
