When a client leaves an inpatient treatment facility, they are usually facing serious problems or a life crisis. While most of these problems may have been caused or complicated by addiction, current and future problems must be dealt with while a client is still learning how to eliminate self-destructive behavior and enjoy a life of sobriety. Our programming modalities are intended to support lifelong recovery by providing clients an opportunity to learn to solve everyday challenges and problems, to prevent relapse.

A typical referral for West Hills Lodge comes from an inpatient counselor, Rule 25 Assessor, Social Worker, or Detention Center Staff. An appointment is set for a client
and a licensed staff to complete a phone interview, determining if the services West Hills Lodge offer are a good fit for the client’s recovery goals.
