Freedom House: Treatments, Programs, and Staff
Approved by the Substance Abuse Prevention & Treatment Agency of Nevada, Freedom House offers continuous drug and alcohol treatment services at different levels of intensity. In treating patients with substance abuse and addiction disorders, Freedom Behavioral Health provides care through inpatient residential services, intensive outpatient services, and outpatient services.
Through residential inpatient services, the center provides 24-hour continuous care in a safe living environment as it aims to develop satisfactory recovery skills and stable life habits in patients to maintain long-term abstinence and prevent relapse. Additionally, Freedom Behavioral Health focuses on evidence-based practices in rehabilitation as it addresses not only medical or psychological needs of clients, but supports their educational, social, and vocational needs and challenges.

- Substance abuse intake and assessment as the first phase of the treatment, where staff sets treatment goals and plans for each patient.

- Additional programs in gambling addiction, co-occurring disorders, parenting skills and development, educational and vocational rehabilitation, and case management.
All programs offer medical, psychiatric, and psychological services, both onsite and referral, including support and assistance with regarding 12-step meetings.
On the other hand, intensive outpatient programs are non-residential services for all patients with substance abuse and addiction disorders with intensity that can be treated on a regularly scheduled basis. These services require a minimum of 9 hours of structured treatments in the environment of Freedom Behavioral Health. Same as residential treatments, outpatient programs as well includes substance abuse intake and assessment, individual, group and family therapies, relapse prevention, co-occurring disorders treatments, psychoeducation, life skills, and 12-step meetings.
When it comes to outpatient program, it differs from the previous two as it serves patients whose addiction is not as intensive.
