Free for Native Americans
Since this program is specifically for Native Americans, it’s free for them. In fact, if you’re not Native American, 5th Generation will probably refer you to a different center. But if you are Native American, you won’t have to pay for your recovery.
Seven Levels of Care
This company calls its approach to addiction recovery the “seven levels of care,” with the seven levels being prevention, intervention, outpatient, day treatment, residential care, relapse, and aftercare. Essentially, these are steps that patients go through in order to recover. This is unique and different from the typical 12-step or even non-12-step programs that many other organizations use.
- Limited space
- Overly flexible
5th Generation Chemical Dependence Program can house only 10 patients at a time, which makes it very difficult to get a spot.
Compared to some other rehabilitation facilities, 5th Generation’s program is extremely flexible—almost too flexible. For example, the organization isn’t very strict about how long a patient must stay in the program, and it doesn’t require patients to have a sponsor. These aren’t limitations to some clients, but for others, having these guidelines can be the difference in their recovery.
