Length of Stay - The McCord Facility utilizes the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Patient Placement Criteria II to determine levels of care and lengths of stay. Naturally, each individual's length of stay is based on two factors: 1) the severity of the illness and 2) the progress that the individual makes while in treatment, the more likely the adolescent is going to have success in changing his/her life.

 

Family Involvement - Family Counseling sessions are an extremely important part of treatment. Weekly family sessions are scheduled to begin the process of mending relationships and working on issues such as communication, trust, and boundaries. Our experience is that the greater the involvement of the family in treatment, the more likely the adolescent is going to have success in changing his/her life.

Visitation - Visitation is limited to immediate family members (mother, father, siblings, grandparents). Visitation only takes place immediately following family sessions.
