About University of Alabama at Birmingham Addiction Recovery Program

We offer confidential evaluations to discuss the inpatient and outpatient treatment options available through our program. Our medical director will meet with you personally to determine the best level of care to meet your needs.

Our core inpatient program includes daily group therapy and lectures, recreational therapy five days a week, family sessions, weekly individual therapy sessions, psychological and psychiatric evaluations as needed, and a follow-up care plan to help you remain sober after the initial treatment. UAB Medicine Addiction Recovery offers a proven way to overcome addiction and take back control of your life, without the stigma or “one-size-fits-all” approach associated with some recovery programs.

Residential Stabilization Unit
Beginning with an intensive schedule, patients receive individual attention and group therapy to ensure a complete understanding of the foundation for recovery. Together with a licensed therapist, each client learns about the crucial components of sober living and real-world recovery. This includes the 12-Step Program, the disease model of addiction, relapse prevention, and healthy coping behaviors. Phase I of treatment lasts 30-45 days.

Partial Hospitalization
The partial hospitalization program at Addiction Recovery focuses on continued education and support while in the community and attending 12-step meetings on their own. Emphasis is placed on nurturing sobriety and building a strong recovery network while continuing to practice healthy coping skills. Patients learn how to put their recovery first and live one day a time. Partial hospitalization usually lasts approximately 45-60 days. Patients may enter treatment at this level of care or use it as a step down from residential treatment.

Intensive Outpatient
The intensive outpatient program provides support as patients assume more ownership of their recovery. Patients focus on employment or find volunteer placement if appropriate. The structure of holding a job, participating in groups, working with a sponsor, and interacting with the therapeutic community is essential in early sobriety.
