Whether patients are in a residential treatment center (RTC), partial hospitalization program (PHP) or intensive outpatient program (IOP), they will be supported by our caring staff to understand what life looks like after treatment and develop a sense of the life in recovery ahead of them. At CFD, treatment takes place in warm, welcoming settings that model the environments one may experience after treatment.
