Specialty Tracks for Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs

Psychological Testing Services

Whiteside Manor, Inc. provides an array of Psychological Testing services, for an additional fee, for prospective clients who may need further clarity about psychological and intellectual functioning. We have found that these testing services are useful to establish a more individually tailored care plan and discharge plan. The testing services offered are listed below:

  • WRAT-III ( Wide Range Achievement Test)
  • Minnesota Multipasic Personality Inventory (MMPI-2)
  • Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R)
  • Kinetic Family Drawing Test (KFD)
  • Sentence Completion
  • Personality Functioning

Clinical Hypnotherapy

We offer the services of a Certified Hypnotherapist to assist with stress management, for help with desired behavior changes, phobias, insomnia, the ability to detach from external distractions. Clinical Hypnotherapy works in partnership with the doctor's prescribed method of treatment for releasing or managing the stress of many conditions. This service is, of course, optional.

Health and Recreation

We believe that healthy recreation is of the utmost importance to a client’s lifestyle. We also stress exercise. For this reason, client’s have access to exercise equipment and outside resources as available.

We have gone one step further and employed a chef to oversee all meals. Members of our drug and alcohol rehab programs are offered vegetarian fare and Heart-Smart diets.

Boot Camp Program

Boot camp at Whiteside Manor promotes discipline, structure and positive character traits. A certified fitness trainer works with each Volunteer four days per week for one hour. Exercise in this regimen has been shown to be effective in substance abuse therapy. However, like any Program of this type, the benefit is dependent upon each participating client’s commitment and desire to improve.
Again, Boot Camp is purely voluntary and at no extra cost. Whiteside Manor offers a dual diagnosis track, meaning it works with clients who suffer from both chemical dependency and mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety. Studies show that exercise can ease the symptoms of depression and anxiety (1). Learning healthy coping mechanisms, such as exercise, is an important component of Boot Camp.


In order to provide a complete, supportive continuum of care, Whiteside Manor provides aftercare services including alumni groups at no cost. Alumni groups are a forum in which clients may explore success, obstacles and day to day issues that confront them, receiving feedback and support from the group facilitator and other participants. In addition, graduates are encouraged to participate in relapse prevention groups, 12-Step meetings in the community and reside in Sober-Living Homes when appropriate.
