Short Term Adult Residential

Short Term Adult Residential - Short Term Adult Residential

OHL’s Short-Term Residential Inpatient Program serves men and women 18 years of age and older.

OHL offers a short-term (approximately 28-day) residential drug rehabilitation program, which intensively focuses on the most basic aspects of drug rehab treatment, such as abstinence from drug abuse, life skills building, and recovery tools.

Through the program, individuals and their families learn to replace destructive patterns and behaviors with constructive communication and living skills. The benefits of such changes and choices – including improved self-esteem, constructive expression, positive relationships, and enhanced coping and living skills – ultimately lead to recovery and reintegration of the individual into his or her community.

Motivated clients can move from the Short-Term Residential Program into OHL's Intensive Outpatient with housing program.
