Palm Partners
On October 31st, 2002 I came to live at a Palm Partners Treatment Center halfway house with 35+ days clean and sober. Twice a week Jerry Egan would come to the halfway house to run a relapse prevention group. 9 months of these groups with Jerry gave me a solid foundation that helped change my life. The precious information that I learned from him is irreplaceable and I still refer to them now over a decade into my new life. I was determined to leave my drug addiction behind me and enter a future full of miracles and blessings and Palm Partners helped me do just that.

Recovery Boot Camp
Recovery Boot Camp provided for me a safe and structured environment to address my drug addiction. After countless treatment centers and failed attempts at sobriety when I came here the staff and the comradery within the community guided me into a life of recovery. What I was taught at RBC was truly the right recipe for my long term sobriety. This place helped save my life!!

Hampton Sober House
It is what it is. It is slightly more relaxed than a standard sober house. You are allowed to bring your dog or cat. Also, couples are allowed. It's more of a three-quarters house than a halfway house. I guess that's why they call it a sober house. The home is older and a little worn, but for the price, it can't be beat.

Crossroads Club
This is a venue for meeting of all types of 12 Step programs. There are dozens of different meetings, 7 days a week. Nothing posh, but the restrooms are clean and there is a snack bar and adequate parking.

Great group of people, professional and much better than AA. I was sick and tired of going to AA and feeling like I didn't belong. If you're like me check it out.
Tips & Advices
If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment. Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program.
Yes. Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. Be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers.
Yes. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful.  Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances.
Yes. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should be factored into your decision. Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse.
