  • have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder (and co-occurring disorders such as anxiety, depression, and ADHD); 

  • have completed a detoxification program and/or short-term treatment such as a wilderness, inpatient, or 30/60/90-day program; and

  • are, at a minimum, aware of the negative impact of their substance abuse and contemplating a change. (Ideally, they are ready to commit to the work of building a life in recovery.)
