Frequently Asked Questions

I am afraid, and I've never been to treatment. How does the process work?

Thank you for taking the first step by accepting treatment. You are just beginning a journey to discover who and what you are really meant to be—including freedom from the pain and sorrow of alcohol and drug dependency, other addictions and trauma. From time to time, and especially at first, you may want to give up and leave.  This is normal.  You are in a new place, meeting lots of new people, and talking about yourself in an unfamiliar way.  It will take some time for you to feel comfortable and secure.  The single most important thing you can do is just STAY.


When you relax and get to know us, you will find that NOAH is a special place.  Our well qualified staff blends diversity, education, a commitment to serve and, most importantly, experience.  Your counselor, other staff members and peers are here to help support you through your transition.  Talk with them.
