Avenues Recovery Center offers a unique arrangement within our residence.  Our 48-bed facility incorporates 10 converted luxury townhomes surrounding the treatment center, each with semi private rooms, kitchens, and living rooms, decreasing the institutionalized feel of entering treatment.  Residential treatment offers the opportunity to engage clinical and medical treatment while residing out of familiar surroundings and potentially unstable environments.

In addition, Avenues maintains stepdown sober apartments for clients post treatment that want to continue living within their support system. The residences, with their rustic feel, offer a safe, private, and holistic environment steeped in the principals of the 12 steps.
