The ARC Process

The ARC Process is best described as a unique spectrum of ideologies that comprise a system which has successfully treated drug victims for over 50 years. It is a simple process that works to “cure” its clients, rather than helping them to “recover”. Our philosophy is that drug victims can be cured in much the same way that a person with pneumonia can be cured By offering and providing a wide range of treatment services (individual counseling, group counseling, HIV/AIDS counseling, resources counseling, medical counseling/referals, social interactive therapy, legal and housing referrals), we find that we can successfully address each individual need. The ARC Process allows every individual the creative maximization of their talents within a controlled system. This encourges their growth and help to develop their own psyche. The ARC Process is not complicated. In fact, it is so simple that once it is understood, you may wonder what took you so long to get it right in the first place.

Phase 1Probation

An indeterminate-length orientation which includes learning agency policies and procedures, submitting two comprehensive educational assessments, medical and psychological evaluations, and reaffirming one’s commitment to a drug-free lifestyle.

Phase 2Pre-employed

Affords program participants an opportunity to become gainfully employed, or enrolled in an educational/vocational, academic/training curriculum at an accredited learning institution.

Phase 3Pre-Re-entry

The clients progress in work/educational activities is monitored on an ongoing basis. Clients who work are required to save one-third of their net income. A client must spend a minimum of 45 days in this phase.

Phase 4Re-entry

After meeting all program requirements (i.e. maintaining a drug-free lifestyle, attending work or school, consistently accruing savings, etc.), clients are permitted to advance to this level of increased responsibilities and corresponding priveleges. This prepares them to continue living a drug-free lifestyle in the community where they will live upon graduation from the program.
