The main requirement to be accepted into Cenikor's adult long-term treatment facilities is simple, but profound: you must have a strong desire to change. The program is designed for people who are physically ready, mentally capable and willing to participate in all aspects of the recovery program, including education and workforce development.

Cenikor's inpatient therapeutic community model uses peer influence and clinical counseling to help residents change attitudes, behaviors and perceptions associated with substance abuse. Employment is vital to recovery; our Workforce Development program provides a centralized, comprehensive career and adult education center for all residents. Workforce Development empowers residents to take control of their own career development and job search by providing the necessary knowledge, tools and resources to be competitive in today's job market.


The long-term program lasts for approximately 18 to 24 months. Long-term treatment is offered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Deer Park, Texas and Fort Worth, Texas. To begin the admissions process call 888-236-4567 or click HERE to fill out the Admissions Form and email it to admissions@cenikor.org.


Our Program



Cenikor is committed to helping people deal with behavioral health issues and addictions. We help more than 1,000 people a week achieve better health and better lives.

Cenikor's residential recovery services are different than other providers in three major ways:

  1. The Cenikor program is an 18 month Therapeutic Community (TC), with an additional 3 to 6 months of re-entry. Cenikor is not a quick fix, but for those who are truly serious about changing their life, Cenikor can be very effective.

  1. Everyone works at a Cenikor-partnered business or within the facilities. Work is part of primary recovery and assists the client to reclaim or develop a healthy work ethic.

  1. Substance abuse recovery services are offered at a one-time non-refundable $450 admissions fee for in-state applicants and $1,500 for out-of-state applicants, plus the cost of transportation to our facility, with no additional cost. The cost of effective services for people who have been struggling with alcohol and drug abuse for a long time is expensive. This cost is supplemented by income received from clients who work on jobs provided by Cenikor's community business partners.

Cenikor Recovery Plan - 18-24 months


Orientation Phase


After a resident has been accepted into Cenikor's program, they will become part of a 21-60 day orientation group. New residents learn the guidelines and rules of living in a Therapeutic Community. Residents will be assigned a room to share with other resident in our dormitory-style facility.

The orientation group will have anywhere from 10 to 30 new residents. Our orientation staff, made up of counselors and other residents, will help residents learn the guidelines, procedures, activities, and concepts of the Cenikor recovery process.

This period allows residents to evaluate the program. In turn, it allows our licensed clinicians to evaluate and determine if the Cenikor program is the right recovery choice for our residents.
