Addiction Recovery for Young Men

As a young man, beginning or continuing recovery can feel like an overwhelming proposition. Where do you start? How do you make friends? How do you balance work or school and life goals with sobriety? At Alpha 180, our services are specifically designed to help you navigate these challenges. Whether you are transitioning out of a residential treatment program or are just beginning your recovery journey, we can help you. Our community is here to help you feel included, supported, and hopeful about your future!

What services does Alpha 180 offer?

We offer an Intensive Outpatient Program, Individual Therapy, and Outpatient Group Therapy. In addition to clinical services, we offer Sober Living, Case Management, Academic Guidance, as well as free sober events and recovery meetings. Our clinical staff are all Master's Level clinicians with years of experience working with young adults and addiction. We are adept at treating mental health concerns, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, and process addictions. Our community-based approach means clients will practice building healthy relationships with themselves, clinicians, family, and peers. Recovery is about feeling hope and the Alpha 180 program is designed to help clients find their passions and restore the hope lost in addiction.

What makes Alpha 180 different?

Imagine walking in to a welcoming home. You are greeted at the door and as you look around you see people your age. They're studying, socializing, and have a general peace about them. This isn't what you thought "treatment" meant at all. That's because it's not. Alpha 180 is not a treatment center. Alpha 180 is a recovery community for young men. Our experienced clinicians will walk alongside you as you uncover and heal the hurts that have kept you from living your fullest life. Whether you participate in group therapy, individual therapy, or join the sober living community, you will find that Alpha 180 is a safe place to be yourself and allow others to get to know you. We invest deeply in each client that comes through our door and take the time to understand what it's like to be you. We know that a trusting relationship is vital for therapy, so we will listen with compassion providing insight in ways that feel constructive and positive. We understand what it's like to try to balance school, work, friendships, and recovery. If you are looking for a community that gets you and can help you on your journey, Alpha 180 is here!

Alpha 180's Groups

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) has been specifically designed for young men transitioning out of a residential treatment program or beginning their recovery journey. We focus on building relational skills and creating new, healthy attachments. By balancing our focus on underlying issues with present-moment stressors, clients will feel hopeful and encouraged. We have the only IOP that invites clients to nightly dinners, as well as access to free sober events with their peers outside of group. We are also the only local IOP specifically for current or aspiring students.
