First, Clients enter the program through our admissions program, Open Access. Open Access Assessments are conducted by skilled clinicians to determine the appropriate placement and level of care for the client. This is a walk-in service with locations in both Manchester, NH, and Franklin, NH

Once the Inpatient Program is recommended as the appropriate level of care, the client will be assigned to one of the three locations listed above.

Our Inpatient Packing Checklist lists that the client needs upon admissions, things to bring for their short-term stay and items to leave at home.

What to Expect

Our residential clients learn about their own innate capacity for health, insight, and happiness during their stay. We incorporate The Three Principles of Mind, Thought, and Consciousness into our program to assist clients in accessing a healthier perspective on life, allowing them to leave their past behind.

Throughout the day residential clients participate in Health Realization and Three Principal focused group counseling and other recovery programs & activities. Our inpatient facilities provide clients with three nutritious meals a day, prepared our in-house team of chefs. When our clients aren’t in recovery programs they enjoy socializing, meditating, gardening, participating in recreational sports, and other fun and productive activities during their free time. We offer a variety of activities both on and off campus. To learn more about the features and activities offered at each inpatient location click here.

What’s Next

The average length of stay is between three and four weeks. Clients may engage in programming beyond thirty days as staff strives to secure housing when there is no safe, sober housing available to them. An internal policy at Farnum dictates that no client will be discharged homeless. Farnum utilizes established strength-based approaches along with Health Realization to reduce the chances of relapsing and to give our clients the proper tools to access their innate wisdom and succeed with their transition back into the community.

Outpatient Services are available and strongly recommended to clients who are transitioning from an inpatient level of care or those who need brief services for a specific purpose such as license restoration, court-ordered LADC evaluations or the resolution of personal issues.

Outpatient Services can consist of assessment and brief intervention, individual counseling, and group therapy. To learn more about our Outpatient Services, click here.
