Marworth has developed highly specialized alcohol and chemical dependency treatment programs that take into consideration each person’s unique medical circumstances as well as individual lifestyles and specific obstacles to recovery.
Marworth’s courses of addiction treatment are based on the fact that alcohol and chemical dependency is a primary and progressive illness. Although chronic, chemical dependency is treatable, and we can help you or your loved one remain in continuous remission from the disease.
Our treatment plans are built upon the foundation of the 12-Step Program. We conduct a medical assessment to identify the severity of each person’s disease.
In order to recommend the appropriate level of care for patients with chemical or alcohol dependency symptoms, evaluations are completed in accordance with guidelines and protocols established by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) and the Diagnostic Statistical Manual IV of the American Psychiatric Association.
Inpatient addiction treatment is designed for individuals experiencing symptoms related to acute or chronic drug and alcohol symptoms. An outpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation program is available and appropriate for people seeking help early on in the disease process when symptoms are less severe or when not in need of medical monitoring.
In addition to our general inpatient alcohol and chemical dependency treatment program, Marworth also offers programs specifically designed for:
Marworth’s Recreation Program offers a ropes course and other experiential learning mediums which are under the direction of our two certified recreation therapists. These activities promote an array of recovery themes and are particularly effective with health care professionals. In addition, they foster group solving capabilities, learning to trust others, asking for help and confronting compulsive behavior.
By accomplishing group tasks in a recreational context, health care professionals are able to confront defenses commonly associated with their professions, such as intellectualization and rationalization. Through the recreational program, individuals are also able to participate in physical exercise, an essential component of recovery.
Our family program offers ongoing education about alcoholism and chemical dependency concurrent to the patient’s treatment. Marworth also offers a full day psycho-educational program conducted by a family therapist that includes educational and group discussions, family conferences, and introduction to Al-Anon and Ala-Teen.
We understand the importance of continuous communication throughout the course of treatment, and are especially sensitive to the needs of our referral sources, managed care organizations and family members. Our experience has demonstrated that the relationships between referral sources and our clinical staff greatly enhance the individual's rehabilitation treatment. We also make every effort to involve the family in the healing process.
Health Care Professionals Program
If you or a loved one works in the healthcare profession, we understand the reality of the complicated circumstances that present unique challenges to the addiction treatment process. For this reason, Marworth developed a Health Care Professionals Program. Concerns surrounding both professional and community status can also present barriers for you. These issues are compounded by the nature of the industry in which you work, a high stress environment with easy access to pharmaceuticals. Our alcohol and chemical dependency treatment specialists can plan and monitor a program designed specifically for you.
Marworth's Health Care Professionals Program blends its philosophy of care with an approach to addiction treatment that understands and recognizes the inherent circumstances of treating health care professionals living with chemical dependency.
Like all of our courses of treatment, our Health Care Professionals Program is founded on the knowledge that alcohol and chemical dependency is a primary and progressive illness, and if left untreated, may even be a terminal illness. Although chronic, alcohol and chemical dependency is treatable, and we can help you or your loved one remain in continuous remission from the disease.
Law Enforcement (Uniformed Professional) Program
Marworth's Uniformed Professionals Program blends its philosophy of care with an approach to treatment that recognizes the circumstances of treating chemically dependent uniformed professionals.
We provide you or your loved one with the essential tools for a balanced and integrated approach to long-term alcohol and chemical dependency recovery. This accomplishment will foster a healthy and productive return to your career.
Like all of our courses of treatment, the Uniformed Professionals Program is based on the knowledge that alcohol and chemical dependency is a primary and progressive illness, and if left untreated, may even be a terminal illness. Although chronic, alcohol and chemical dependency is treatable, and we can help you or your loved one remain in continuous remission from the disease.
The uniformed professional presents unique challenges to chemical dependency treatment. At Marworth, we understand that the dynamic nature of the law enforcement and firefighting professions can expose you to extreme levels of stress, trauma, physical and psychological danger. If you work in these professions and are diagnosed with alcohol and chemical dependency, you may require an addiction treatment program that is developed in consideration of these circumstances.
Treatment Structure for Professionals Programs
Phase I: Primary care
Phase I is designed to assess, educate, counsel and guide the professional in understanding the nature of the disease of alcoholism and chemical dependency, and to self-diagnose and introduce the addiction recovery process. Education about the 12-Step Program, in addition to group, individual and family therapy, is the cornerstone of primary care.
Phase II: Reintegration
The need for additional time in treatment may be necessary for certain individuals. Professionals for whom relapse and treatment resistance has been a problem, or those who are dually diagnosed, may need the support of Extended Care.
Through a structured re-entry process, Phase II provides professionals the opportunity to "reality test" what they have learned in primary care. Integration into local Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and approved home visits build the framework for care professionals to return to a functional life while remaining abstinent from alcohol and drugs.
While maintaining the integrity of the traditional 12-Step Program for addiction recovery, we have blended the following additional components into our Professionals Programs:
- Admissions 24/7 after arrangements have been finalized with an admissions counselor
- Intensive group therapy with other professionals
- 12-Step Program education
- Re-entry planning for the transition back to work, family and community
- Complete medical examination and monitoring
- 24-hour-a-day nursing coverage
- A network of recovering professionals who serve as contacts and assist our professional staff as 12-Step Program support members
- Stress management training
- Trauma groups (critical incident stress debriefing when indicated)
- Dual Diagnosis education/treatment
- Neuropsychological testing (when indicated)
- Relapse prevention groups
Dual Diagnosis Program Overview
Marworth offers a Dual Diagnosis Program to meet the special needs of adult patients who are alcohol or chemically dependent and have also been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder. Key components of the Dual Diagnosis Program include special group and educational programs. These customized services are designed to support the individual's self recovery by focusing on the solutions to recovery barriers and building self-trust as well as trust in others.
Once an individual completes Marworth's alcohol and chemical rehabilitation program, support for his or her recovery is charted in a continuing care plan. A major component of this plan includes regular attendance at support groups addressing early recovery issues. In addition, individuals are directed to regularly participate in 12-Step Program Fellowship Meetings.

The fee for inpatient treatment covers room, board and all aspects of treatment and medical services provided on site. Patients or their insurance are responsible for external, off site dental and medical services. Most insurance plans cover at least part of the treatment provided to uniformed professionals.
