A Compassionate Environment

At Magnified, healing lives is our purpose, which is reflected in every detail of our recovery programs. Our team is hyper-focused on recovery and those in recovery, and each one of our treatment centers is a unique, beautifully designed environment that promotes wellness and healing. Our individualized treatment plans acknowledge your specific needs while also understanding how addiction affects the entire family unit. We will create a plan that offers a combination of medical care and clinical therapy based on the level of support that best suits your needs. Below is a list and description of the different levels of care we provide. 


Medical detox is the first step on the road to recovery. Our detox program will see you safely through your detox experience, beginning with a health evaluation that considers your physical and mental health. Depending on the substance you’re detoxing from, you may benefit from medication-assisted treatment to help ease your withdrawal symptoms.

Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient rehab is an immersive experience that offers 24/7 medical care and clinical therapy. Inpatient rehab is the ideal next step for most people in recovery after going through medical detox because it provides intensive support and guidance, as well as the necessary time to heal in a calm and relaxed setting. 

Partial Hospitalization

Partial hospitalization programs or PHPs are less intensive and provide clinical therapy sessions throughout the day and medical care as necessary. A PHP is suitable for people who have a stable living situation to return to in the evenings, allowing them greater freedom to live at home and cook their own meals. 

Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Intensive outpatient treatment programs are a good way to transition from a PHP to a schedule of studying or working. You’ll still see a doctor intermittently and have a primary clinical therapist, and attend three hours of therapy daily. 


Outpatient programs are less intensive than the other levels of care we provide and are ideal for people who are in a stable place in their recovery journeys and require less support. Outpatient programs provide three hours of private and group therapy sessions 2-3 times a week.

Attending Treatment Groups

If you are struggling with a substance use or a mental health disorder and are looking into treatment options, it’s important to remember that your willingness to work with a recovery team is a key part of your healing journey. Once you know more about the levels of care we offer and what you can expect from attending one of our programs, it’s up to you to think about why you want to get better – knowing that your participation, effort, and sincere desire to heal is necessary to make progress on your recovery journey.

Frequently Asked Questions About Daily Rehab Schedules

Which level of care is right for me?

If you are in active addiction, medical detox is the first step, which can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Once your condition is stable, we will recommend the level of care that will serve you best. It is important to receive as much intensive support as possible after detoxing from drugs or alcohol, which is why attending an in-patient program is highly recommended. 

What kind of therapy do you offer?

We offer clinical therapy in group and one-on-one settings. Our treatment programs also provide family therapy, hypnotherapy, guided meditations, nutritional counseling, and gourmet meals to help support your recovery journey. 

Why should I choose Magnified over other rehab programs?

We provide excellent, compassionate care and an impressive 3 to 1 staff to client ratio. Our inpatient programs are limited to 12- 20 people at a time depending on the location, creating a more intimate atmosphere and personalized experience for every person that attends.
