As with all aspects of your care at Mount Regis Center, your next step following residential treatment will be determined by what is best for you. Some patients return home or to an alternative supported living environment following their time in our residential program, while others step down to our partial hospitalization program (PHP) or intensive outpatient program (IOP).

One of the many benefits of residential care at Mount Regis Center is that if you need additional structure and support, you can transition directly into PHP or IOP. This ensures continuity of care, and can protect you from immediate relapse as you gain a stronger foothold in early recovery.

Whenever your time with us comes to a close, you will leave with a detailed discharge plan. This plan will document the progress you made while in our care, note the issues and challenges that may require additional support, and identify the community-based resources that may be of assistance to you as you pursue lifelong recovery.

From the moment you first call Mount Regis Center until the day you complete your time in our care, we will provide you with the personalized experience that best prepares you for long-term success.

It was time for me to go to Treatment. I had tried everything and I just couldn't stop drinking. Mt. Regis was what I needed. A safe place with excellent counselors and a rigorous program. This place works if you work it. I received a great deal of information about my problem and solid support to begin a plan of action. I hope to stay involved there and give back
