Horizon Village FAQ’s
Hope on the Horizon
We believe that recovery is possible. Individuals faced with substance abuse have the right to the highest-quality treatment. Comprehensive services, based on the highest professional standards, are conducted in a progressive and safe environment.
The following are some questions and answers to help you determine if Horizon Village may be a good fit for you or someone you love.
What is the philosophy or approach to recovery at Horizon Village?
At Horizon Village, we integrate treatment, including focus on the medical, psychological, spiritual, cultural and environmental needs of the individual. Residential treatment is often a necessary step in initiating recovery and the development of an substance abuse-free lifestyle. Research indicates that individuals in recovery who are separated from their previous daily routine are more willing and able to fully participate and benefit from treatment programs. Residential treatment provides an opportunity for holistic recovery by providing person-centered treatment in an environment that empowers residents to make choices as they focus on improving all life-skill areas.

Does Horizon Village offer any support for family members?
“Family” is our middle name! We have a special program designed just for family and friends. The Family Program addresses the needs of family and friends who have been affected by the chemical dependency of another, and is viewed as an integral part of treatment.
The overall design of the Family Program is to:
- Help families and friends understand and deal with substance abuse as a disease process.
- Help families and friends understand the healthiest ways to provide help and support.
- Help families and friends with basic listening, communication and problem-solving skills.
The Family Program addresses the following goals:
- To increase motivation for recovery
- To convey the “whole-family” message
- To investigate family patterns that work against recovery
- To prepare the family as to what to expect in early recovery
- To encourage family members’ own long-term support
Are visits by family members permitted?
Of course! Family visits take place twice a week. Sessions with residents and family and/or significant others and the family counselor are available upon request. Special family events are planned approximately once per quarter.
