Is St. Joseph Recovery Center a Locked Facility?

No. St. Joseph Recovery Center admits those that volunteer for treatment. Our doors are not locked.


What is a Typical Day Like?

​Your day will be full here. Morning hours include wake-up, nursing services, breakfast, and your first group session begins at 9:00 a.m. Hiking, farm outings, group sessions, individual therapy, and other activities are held throughout the day with breaks in between. Lunch is served at noon and dinner at 5:00 p.m. each day. Our food is catered from a local cafe and it is delicious! At least once per week, you will meet with your assigned therapist for an individual session and work on your relapse prevention plan. Your therapist will give you reading and writing assignments to complete. You will have the opportunity to attend community-based 12-step meetings or non-denominational church services, available during the week and on Sundays.  There are evening and weekend hours where television and phone time is permitted.


How Long is the Program?

Inpatient treatment varies depending on each individual case. Our treatment programs are based upon medical necessity.  A few factors used to determine a patient’s medical necessity include clinical assessment, length and severity of addiction, the presence of co-occurring mental health disorders, discharge plan, and insurance provider requirements. The initial length of stay at St. Joseph Recovery Center is normally 30-60 days but can be extended based upon medical necessity.
