Cheyenne Center provides quality care in a cost effective manner to clients and their family members for the treatment of alcoholism and other drug dependencies. Cheyenne Center provides each client with a highly trained, empathetic, multi-disciplinary substance abuse treatment team. Together, they assess recovery from chemical dependency and the problems that are common to this disease. Cheyenne Center's levels of care and types of focused programs and services are listed below:

Inpatient Rehabilitation Program, Intensive Outpatient Program, Recovering Professionals' Program, Relapse Prevention Program, Dual Recovery Program, Criminal Justice Diversion Program, Family Program, Continuing Care, Alumni Services Professional, Substance Abuse Intervention Services, Evaluation and Assessment

Outpatient Services: For those people who can stay drug free while attending an evening program, the Outpatient Program is another choice for treatment. Clients meet 2-4 times a week for a total of 18 weeks. The program includes a confidential assessment, education groups, group therapy individual counseling, 12-Step orientation and meetings, and stress reduction activities.

Intensive Residential Services: Cheyenne Center offers a specially trained team for men dealing with drug and alcohol abuse problems and provides an environment conducive to recovery for both the individual and the family. This program is generally a 28 day program, allowing time for the client to recover physically, emotionally, and spiritually. In addition to individual, group, and family therapy, our approach includes exercise, meditation, and good nutrition.

Extended Residential Services: Once a person has successfully completed the Intensive Rehabilitation Program, an extended care program is available. The treatment team must approve admissions as beds are very limited. The individual continues additional substance abuse treatment. Here the client may remain for up to another 60 days.
