Please Note

This is a peer driven program and we want clients to interact instead of isolating themselves.

While at Harmony, you will be under the care of our medical director (an M.D.).

Please make a list of all names and phone numbers from your cell phone, as you will not be able to keep your phone while in treatment.

Harmony Foundation, Inc., will not be held liable for the condition and/or security of any non-approved items. All items brought in that are not allowed will be sent home with family members at the time of admission.
