​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
​​​ Metamorphosis is a long-term, community-based, residential treatment program for adult chronic substance dependent clients; many clients also have a co-occurring mental health disorder. Length of treatment can range from 6 to 12 months in the residential component, pending on their progression of treatment. Pending availability, clients may also stay up to six months in transitional housing, and this is often a requirement to assist in their transition into the community. Those who graduate also have unlimited aftercare services, which is also recommended for a minimum of one year following residential treatment.

Services Provided

The program offers individual, group, and family counseling in a structured, therapeutic setting. Treatment is divided into several phases, which progress gradually toward re-entering the community. Therapy and treatment planning is provided by trained clinicians and also includes recovery based groups, anger management, parenting, communication building, financial skills, and independent living skills. After approximately four to five months, the client is expected to obtain employment while still living at the facility and continuing with treatment. Individuals work to become productive, drug-free members of society by obtaining and maintaining employment, participating in self-help support groups and acquiring safe and affordable housing. Following the residential treatment component, clients may participate in the transitional housing component if housing or community re-entry is an issue. Aftercare services are available to all graduates of the residential program for an unlimited time.
