Drug and Alcohol Recovery for Adults

The Adult Drug and Alcohol Recovery Program (Adult DARP) is a 16 week outpatient program. It is designed for those who have limited funds but still want treatment in an outpatient setting. Here's how it works:

Primary/Early Recovery (16 weeks)

In the primary phase, groups of 8 - 10 individuals meet three times a week for ninety minute sessions. The principle focus is on education, and includes:

  • Facts about drug and alcohol use
  • The causes of drug and alcohol abuse and its effects
  • The addiction and recovery process
  • Medical aspects of drug and alcohol use and co-occurring issues
  • Social and peer pressure
  • Information about the ongoing 12-step recovery program

During this phase, we will also create an individualized treatment plan to meet your needs. This plan may include individual counseling if desired.

Aftercare/Relapse Prevention

After 16 weeks we also provide Aftercare/Relapse Prevention services for up to a full year to give you the ongoing support you need to live a substance-free lifestyle. This may include meeting in a small group and individual counseling sessions one to two times each week. We are here to help you.


  • You may begin the program at any time.
  • Our services are completely confidential.
  • Your ability to pay should not affect your ability to receive services. Regardless of your income, insurance status, we will work with you to help you get the care you need.

"I am an educated person, the mother of four children, and I thought I knew all I needed to know about the world around me. But one day I got mixed up with the wrong person; one thing led to another and led me into drugs. I needed help and there was no one willing to help me. My lawyer told me about Axis Community Health. At first I really wasn't sure if I could get the help I needed there, but I can honestly say that if it wasn't for the DARP class I would still be using. Most of all, I have learned how much more I have to learn."
