One service provided is Mindfulness E.A.S.T. (Emotional Awareness and Skill Training). Dr. Dave Smith says the idea is to break the connection between emotions and drug use.

Working alongside him is Dr. Stephen Dansiger, with a specialization of E.D.M.R. trauma therapy, aiming to alleviate certain traumatic events that may have contributed to a want for substances.

Officials hope that after a patient leaves the facility they will have the independece to choose aftercare fitting their specific needs.

Amarni and Moore confirmed the first resident for their Bloomfield home is set to move in this week.
