Addiction and Recovery Services

We provide evidence-based treatment for alcoholism and drug addiction, including opioids.  

You are unique—your path to recovery will be unique too.

Your immediate needs will determine your first steps.  Some start at the Residential Lodge; others need a few days of Medical Stabilization before starting a recovery program.  If you need to continue to work and/or take care of a family, our Intensive Oupatient program allows you to participate in a structured recovery program for 3 hours a day.  

Not sure where to start?  Call 434.200.4455 - our Admissions Counselors will work with you to develop your individual treatment program. 

Small is good.

With 15 private rooms at our Lodge, the ratio of patients to staff is high.  Clients in early recovery can be vulnerable.   High staffing ratios keep clients engaged through the treatment process.  Small size also means small group sessions.  

Costs & Insurance

Centra Health is a non-profit 501c3 organization.  Thus Pathways can offer evidence-based, medically sound rehab at affordable prices.  The private pay cost is 10K for 28 days of Residential Treatment at the Pathways Lodge.  We also accept insurance from most providers.  


Recovery begins when you or a loved one contacts our Admissions Team.  Please call 434.200.4455.
