Programs (Service Models)

Programs (or service models) are a bundle of services or required activities. As a recovery residences provider, you may offer one or more programs. For example, you could have an Extended Aftercare as well as a “step down” sober living. Or, perhaps your women’s program looks significantly different than your men’s program. Complete a form for each program. Each program is evaluated and a Level of Support is determined.
What do you call this Program or Service Model? This could be the published name of the model or a name you use internally to distinguish between other programs you provide. E.g. Oxford House, High Accountability, Step-down, etc...
