9-month methadone/buprenorphine maintenance therapeutic community for adults needing the intensity of residential treatment and MAT. It is designed for
clients presenting great difficulty maintaining stability at ambulatory programs. Pregnant Women and Infant’s Program is a very unique 6- to 15-month treatment program for mothers and their infants.
