Our Program

The Three-Phase Approach.

Welcome to the Clean Three-Phase Approach that integrates the latest clinical therapy into a powerful program aimed at on-going sobriety.

Everything we do is designed to build you up and prepare you to succeed. At Clean Recovery Centers, we focus on the good within all of us, giving you the necessary tools to get, live, and stay clean.

Get Clean.

PHASE I – Preparation.

Your road to recovery begins!  You will learn about numerous leading edge techniques critical to permanent sobriety. Phase I is typically the first 4 weeks of treatment.


Group Therapy Sessions

During Phase I, Clients will attend IOP (Intensive Outpatient) Group Therapy Sessions five (5) days each week.

Individual Therapy

Clients will have one-on-one sessions with our on-staff clinical therapists once (1) every week.

Case Management

Each client will have one (1) meeting per week to discuss progress with their assigned Case Manager, who will also help them find and start part-time work.


The Four Agreements

Clients will learn the Four Agreements, as outlined in “The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom” by Don Miguel Ruiz. Focusing daily on these agreements is essential for a clean life:

  • Always do your best
  • Don’t assume anything
  • Be impeccable with your word
  • Don’t take anything personally

12-Step Work

In Phase I, Clients will learn about the 12 Steps established by the founders of Alcoholic Anonymous and utilized in various addiction recovery programs. Clients will have worked on approximately half of these steps before graduating to the next phase of treatment.

Part-time Work Outside of the Program

Clients will begin to work part-time while in the program, learning to balance their recovery with other responsibilities and priorities to form the foundation of their new clean lifestyle.

Live Clean.

PHASE II – Action.

In Phase II, you will begin to put the skills learned in Phase I into action on a daily basis and begin your successful integration back into society as you find work and start to enjoy life again. Phase II typically lasts 4 weeks.


Group Therapy Sessions

Phase II Clients will attend IOP Group Therapy Sessions three (3) days each week.


Individual Therapy

Clients will continue to have one (1) session per week with a therapists to address underlying issues with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Case Management

Clients will continue to have one (1) meeting per week with their assigned Case Manager, who will assist in finding post-treatment accomodations during this phase.


Focus on Willingness

In Phase I, Clients began their journey and began to truly understand their addiction. In Phase II, they begin to grow and move toward an entirely new lifestyle. In this Phase, we learn the importance of commitment and willingness:

  • Commitment to action “Today I will!”
  • Willingness  “I am willing to!”
  • Demonstrate use of Phase I tools

Full time Work and Housing

Case managers will work with clients to help them successfully move from part-time to full time work and find housing for after completion of treatment outside of Clean transitional residences.

Stay Clean.

PHASE III – Transition.

Phase III is where clients begin to transition into society full-time. You will step down from intensive outpatient to an outpatient treatment level  of care and the number of clinical sessions begins to decrease. Phase III also lasts approximately 4 weeks.


Group Therapy Sessions

Phase III Clients will begin to attend OP (Outpatient) Group Therapy Sessions. They’re required to attend two (2) one-hour sessions per week.

Individual Therapy

Clients will continue to have one (1) session per week with a therapists to address underlying issues with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Practice and Growth

In Phase III, clients start to live a refreshed, new Clean lifestyle. Tools learned in the first two phases start to become second nature. Old beliefs are discarded. New beliefs become ingrained. The whole world begins to look and feel cleaner.


Life becomes more meaningful when we are helping others and not thinking about ourselves. Clients is Phase III will work toward becoming useful, productive members of their communities, both in recovery and the world at large.

Clean Graduate Track

Maintenance and Continued Growth

After graduating from the three initial phases, clients move into a more independent course of on-going treatment. Clients can participate in Grad Track treatment for three months or more.

Continuing Group and Individual Therapy

Grad Track Clients will attend one (1) Outpatient Graduate Group Therapy Session and one (1) Individual Therapy session per week. Most Grad clients move out of Clean Transitional Residences, but may live in one of the Grad houses if there is space and they are working.

Complete and Independent

The Clean Graduate Track can be tailored to the level of involvement that the client requires after completing the first three phases, allowing them more independence to learn how to remain cleanon their own, but giving them enough support to ensure their success.
