Shepherd Hill - Private Residential Treatment Center

At Shepherd Hill, our goal is to match the intensity of the treatment with the severity of the disease, thus ensuring individualized treatment. The patients’ treatment needs are continually assessed, and the level of care is determined by using the standards of The American Society of Addiction Medicine.

Patients are taught to work a 12-step program, ever mindful that the first word of the First Step is 'We.'
