Our program is holistic. Each client’s therapy begins with a thorough intake assessment. The pacing of therapy is sensitive to each individual’s capacity to change.
Harmony Place Monterey begins where other programs end. Too often the individual is not ready to return to their home environment, friendships, and family, so they may quickly relapse. We identify blocks to sobriety and help re-engineer a client’s life, job, relationship, and daily stress. Then we teach him or her how to alter boundaries and attachment patterns for relationships, and establish a satisfying career.
