What We Do
The Mooring Programs, Inc. has been helping men, women, and
their families recover from drug and alcohol problems for over 35
years. At the core or our work is a belief in the dignity and worth
of each human being. For those who demonstrate signs of substance
abuse disorders, we provide a safe place to find recovery. Our goal
is to promote a drug and alcohol free lifestyle which, once
achieved, will unleash each person's unique human potential.
While we have one common mission, we at Mooring House and Casa
Clare are committed to a philosophy whereby the treatment programs
and corresponding facilities for men and women remain separate and
gender-specific to ensure optimal outcomes. We understand that
women with children may encounter additional barriers to seeking
treatment. To address this, Casa Clare provides four rooms for
women and their children, along with a playground area.
The Mooring Programs, Inc. offers the full range of treatment
options from intensive, medically monitored, inpatient treatment
through transitional, apartment and
post-treatment aftercare .
Clients have the opportunity to participate in the treatment
process from 30 days to 18 months, depending on how invested they
choose to be. The average length of stay is eight months.
Mental health concerns
Mental health issues (i.e., depression, anxiety) often co-exist
with substance abuse issues. We offer a multi-disciplinary
treatment program with professionals certified in both mental
health and substance abuse. In treatment, our clients work on all
aspects of their lives: psychological, physical, social, and
spiritual. We take a supportive, empathetic, non-blaming treatment
approach that emphasizes personal empowerment, choice, balance, and
independence, also recognizing the need for healthy fun.

After successful treatment, clients prepare for their transition
back into the community. Emphasizing empowerment, clients actively
participate in developing individualized, ongoing aftercare plans
that will help support and guide them as they return to their lives
outside our facilities. We recognize that recovery is a long-term
process; therefore, individuals who complete the program retain
access to our experienced, compassionate, and well-trained staff
for ongoing support. Our door is always open.
