Our Three-Phase Approach


Phase One: Outpatient Rehabilitation

While in rehab, the patient attends 3-5 sessions per week, 3 hours per session. This is the most intensive phase of the program, when patients, after a comprehensive evaluation, undergo a combination of education and therapy dealing with critical issues in early sobriety.

It is during the rehab program that a stable pattern of physical health is established, and sober coping and AOD refusal skills are developed. The patient is expected to attend self-help and obtain at least a temporary sponsor.

Phase Two: Clinical Care

Once patients have achieved the treatment goals as set forth in the initial treatment plan, they will be stepped down to the Clinical Care phase of the program. The patient will attend 2-3 sessions per week, 1.5 hours per session. Through educational and group discussions, patients gain an understanding of the nature of addiction as a disease process and appreciate the effects of the disease on family, personal growth, and development. They deal with ongoing issues in sobriety, internal problems, and external stress.

Depending on client needs, placement in one of our specialty groups or in individual therapy to address specific issues as it relates to relapse, abstinence, and recovery may be indicated.

Phase Three: Transition

As our clients prepare for discharge, they will be stepped down into a Transition Group. In this phase, patients complete a goal identification outline to help take an inventory of where they have been and what they need to accomplish prior to discharge. We help the patient overcome sabotaging behavior, learn how to say good-bye, and understand how the impact of unresolved earlier life traumas affects their recovery efforts. They work on these areas of personal conflict and incorporate into their daily routine the skills and sober coping mechanisms learned during the treatment process.

As they achieve realization of their goals at KPC, patients are again assessed for ongoing treatment needs and an appropriate referral is made.

The treatment team at KPC believes that successful recovery from addiction requires a holistic approach addressing the psychological and spiritual needs of the client, his or her family, and significant others throughout the recovery process. The team's focus is on the maximum enhancement of the human spirit through continuing personal growth.

The principles, traditions, and values of Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon and other relevant self-help groups are an integral part of the philosophy of the team. Our mission is to reduce or eliminate the adverse effects of chemical dependency upon the individual, the family, significant others, and the community. We shall utilize the best prevention, diagnostic, and treatment knowledge that is available in the fields of medicine, psychology, social work and alcoholism counseling.
