Drug Education Program
Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP)
The philosophy of RDAP is that the problem of drug abuse is not just a problem for chemical addiction, but it is one of lifestyle. The program aims at developing a lifestyle conducive to living free of drugs and crime. We believe that the focus of treatment for drug abuse is more than simply the drug abuse per se, but the lifestyle which supports the drug use. When a lifestyle supports drug use or criminal behavior, the focus of treatment must be the lifestyle, not simply the drug use. This program includes understanding drugs and what they do to a person. But more importantly, the program examines and facilitates change in every aspect of life, including thinking patterns, emotions, social and family relationships, physical wellness, criminal behavior, spirituality, and others. The focus is on learning alternatives in life and accepting responsibility for living the new alternatives.
