Detoxification is the first step in recovery, and it can be an uncomfortable process. Here at Monarch Shores, our top priority is to make sure you get substance-free in comfort before moving on to the next steps in recovery.



Monarch Shores offers inpatient (or residential) rehab programs. Patients benefit from 24-hour medical care and emotional support, allowing them to focus fully on recovery without outside temptations and distractions.

Dual Diagnosis


Dual Diagnosis typically describes a patient with both a mental illness such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, or anxiety that is paired with substance use disorder– At Monarch Shores we offer therapies designed to address both conditions.

12 Step


Twelve-step programs emerged nearly a century ago as a way to help recovering alcoholics. At Monarch Shores, we offer our clients the option to follow the program as they work through their substance use disorders.



We at Monarch Shores realize that not everyone wants to follow a 12-step plan. As a result, we also offer SMART Recovery’s program of self-empowerment to overcome addiction.



Once Monarch Shores’ clients finish residential treatment, they have the option to take part in our Intensive Outpatient Program. Meetings are held letting clients participate in various therapies as they master mindfulness and relapse prevention.

Opioid addiction is extremely complex to overcome. We at Monarch Shores offer Medication-Assisted Treatment, a process that ensures safe withdrawal via a combination of medicines, counseling, and support.



If alcohol use and abuse are taking over your life, or that of a loved one, Monarch Shores can help. We help our patients get through withdrawal safely and comfortably, followed with treatments to help achieve sobriety and aftercare plans so they can stay substance-free.



Stimulant abuse and addiction can include any number of substances, from street drugs like cocaine and crystal meth to prescription ADHD medications such as Adderall and Ritalin. At Monarch Shores, we’ll work with you to get clean, find the root of the problem, and help pave a path toward a drug-free future.



A Xanax or benzodiazepine addiction can quickly take root. It’s one thing for them to help with anxiety, but if you’re experiencing irritation, dizziness, drowsiness and other troubling symptoms, it may be time to seek help.



Are you tired of depending on your sleeping pills night in and night out? It is possible that you developed an addiction to your medication. Thousands if not millions of people have received sleeping pill addiction treatment and have recovered.



Many find hallucinogen use to be harmless, embroidering it in a whimsical language like “tripping” and so on, but abuse of LSD, ecstasy and other substances can impair motor function, cause memory loss and bring on anxiety and terror. Monarch Shores offers safe, medically-assisted detox, and designs a rehab.



Even though marijuana continues to lose some of its stigmas by becoming legal in more and more places, it can still be a problematic drug, especially when paired with other substances like alcohol, opioids or barbiturates. We are dedicated to helping our patients achieve sobriety and begin new, drug-free chapters in their lives.



Some people use prescription antidepressants to deal with mental illness. These medications work by altering the levels of serotonin in the brain. Many people take prescription antidepressants such as Zoloft, Prozac, Lexapro, Celexa, and Paxil and claim that they have improved their overall mood.
