Afternoons with supportive Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Group Therapy) is the best treatment framework.  A typical day includes groups like Relapse Prevention, Family Dynamics, and Character Building.  In a supportive female-only environment, it has been demonstrated that we’re more comfortable–enabling us to recover more easily.
