Our Program Overview
Latest Information on Our COVID-19 Precautions & Online Treatment Options
The Nexus Treatment Team is comprised of counselors, therapists, physicians, and staff who specialize in substance use disorder, co-occurring disorders, addiction medicine, and recovery.
Our program’s mission is to provide the tools and support necessary for our clients to achieve lasting sobriety. We do so with a safe, comfortable, and compassionate environment that allows each client to focus on their own recovery.
We utilize a number of different treatment modalities to help best serve our clients. We work to help combat addiction from all angles by addressing the underlying causes of addiction, while also assisting our clients in building a new set of tools to help them live happy, successful, sober lives.
- Individual Therapy
Depending on the level of care, clients can have one to two sessions per week. Clients will have a minimum of one individual session per week throughout our program but therapists are available for more sessions as needed.
- Family Therapy
Reconnect with family and explore family dynamics with out Family Intensive Program that is available to all clients. We also offer regular family coaching and weekly progress updates. Family therapy is also available when clinically appropriate.
- Coordination of Psychiatric Services
All clients are assessed by our Medical Director upon admission. Continued weekly or bi-monthly sessions and medication monitoring are available as needed.
- Spiritual Guidance
Weekly access to a spiritual advisor and lectures on spirituality.
- Health & Fitness
In recovery we need to heal emotionally and physically. We have a nutritionist on-site once a week and help encourage our clients to work out outside of Nexus by assisting in workout plan development.
- Group Outings
Beach days, hiking, surfing, movie nights, and more are all designed to help our clients build a healthy sober community both inside and outside of our program.
- Group Therapy
Several group sessions are offered each day ranging from relapse prevention and psychoeducation, to yoga and creativity in recovery. Our program is designed to provide variety in order to keep clients engaged in the recovery process.
- Life Skills Coaching
In a minimum of a once weekly case management session with our on-site counselor, clients are supported in the process of achieving their educational, career, and financial goals. From mock-interview practice, to doctors appointment arrangement, our case management team is here to assist our clients in all aspects of their life in recovery.
Weekly yoga, meditation, and mindfulness activities that support our mind, body, spirit philosophy are an integral part of treatment at Nexus.
- 12 Step Groups
We encourage all our clients to develop a fellowship outside of Nexus in other 12-step or 12-step alternative groups. Together with individual work and the therapeutic process, being around like-minded individuals makes long-term recovery possible.
Program Structure: How It Works
A client’s schedule at Nexus is customized based on their individual needs. Upon admission, clients are assessed by our clinical team and a suggested treatment plan is developed.
We honor the unique experiences of both men and women in recovery from addiction. This is why we offer gender-responsive programming here at Nexus Recovery.
Our program incorporates both gender-specific and mixed-gender groups throughout our program to provide our clients with the best chance at long-term success. Our men’s program and women’s program are designed with the individual needs of each client in mind and help lay a foundation of practical tools to help our clients best navigate life both during and after treatment.
Most clients who come to us begin in our Partial Hospitalization Program—receiving care at the facility for six-hours a day, five days a week. As client’s move through PHP and into the Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient programs, they begin to spend less time at our facility and more time participating in day-to-day activities such as work, school, and time with family.
At Nexus, we are dedicated to helping those struggling with substance abuse and mental health disorders no matter what. It is for this reason that we are now also offering accredited virtual outpatient treatment programs to ensure safe and secure access to treatment for everyone.
We also understand that each person enters treatment under different circumstances, and we pride ourselves on providing customized care for all of our clients. Consequently, we are always willing to work with clients and their families to find a level of care that suits each person’s individual needs.
Continuation of Care
Understanding that alcoholism and addiction are diseases centered in the brain, Nexus focuses on treating each client’s mind, body, and spirit with two core philosophies: time and connection.
Using a four-phase extended care treatment program, we provide clients with both adequate time and an environment that fosters meaningful connections in order to give our clients the structure and support they need to achieve recovery. Each phase of the four-phase system promotes achievable, tangible, and rewarding goals that enable clients to reconnect with their peers, families, and futures. When individuals enter our care, it becomes our mission to help them build a framework for themselves and provide the tools they need to maintain sobriety and achieve their personal goals. As clients move through each phase of the treatment program, they will continue to progress and develop as individuals while remaining part of a strong recovery community.

At Nexus Recovery, we also offer gender-specific IOP programs which helps determine a clients schedule. Below are example schedules for both the men’s and women’s programs at 3 or 5 days per week.

Alumni Program & Continuing Care
We know that staying connected to our facility through an alumni and/or mentorship program can be an important part of maintaining sobriety. Consequently, Nexus offers a variety of ways for clients to stay involved, supported, and accountable once they have completed their treatment with us. Aftercare services are available for clients who want or need additional support as they make the transition back to independent living.
Alumni & Family Testimonials
“Nexus is awesome! Staff is so caring and kind and truly cares about clients and their success. I went here for 6 months and in that time learned more about myself than I ever have before. Their approach to treatment is unlike any other place around and is the reason why I have been successful in my sobriety today. Most treatment centers are solely focused on financial gain and put clients second. Nexus is far from that and puts their clients as a number one priority. Nothing but love for the people at Nexus!”
