Spotlight™ Addiction Recovery Program

Human Behavior Institute started its Addiction Treatment and Recovery Program in 1992 to help adults (18 years and older) suffering from alcohol, drug, gambling and/or other addiction-related problems.

This program is designed to provide participants with a therapeutic “community” that interacts with their families and friends, addressing all aspects of their psychosocial and physical environment. It addresses addiction-related issues of three different types of adults: the addict, the “co-dependents”, and other adults raised in a dysfunctional family.

The program is focused on personalized treatment and based on conditional assessments with two primary components: the Intensive Treatment Phase and the Aftercare Phase.

Intensive Treatment Phase:

Clients participate in the program FOUR nights per week, for FOUR weeks. The nickname “4-by-4″ is often used to identify the Intensive phase. Some participants do not need all 16 sessions, while others may require more than 16 sessions depending on their motivation and the length and depth of their addiction. During this period, participants receive:

  • Individual and group counseling
  • Family and concerned-person participation once a week
  • Dual diagnosis intervention, including medication if necessary


Following the Intensive, 4×4 phase, Human Behavior Institute offers “graduates” a two-year AfterCare program. It consists of a support group that meets once per week for 2 years. A counselor oversees each AfterCare session.

Program Objectives:

To achieve recovery, Human Behavior Institute focuses on helping participants learn about addiction and its hold on one’s emotions, thought-process, spirituality, physical health; and its effects on their family, career, self-esteem, personality, etc.:

  • For those burdened by addiction, to achieve and maintain sober living and lead a healthy life
  • For the “co-dependents” affected by others’ addictions, to establish and reinforce personal boundaries
  • For the adult raised in a dysfunctional family, to break the cycle of self-destruction and develop healthy living
