What is Narcotics Anonymous? NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using. We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. Our program is a set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives. The most important thing about them is that they work.
There are no strings attached to NA. We are not affiliated with any other organizations, we have no initiation fees or dues, no pledges to sign, no promises to make to anyone. We are not connected with any political, religious or law enforcement groups, and are under no surveillance at any time. Anyone may join us, regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion or lack of religion.
We are not interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were, what you have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help. The newcomer is the most important person at any meeting, because we can only keep what we have by giving it away. We have learned from our group experience that those who keep coming to our meetings regularly stay clean.
Our mission is to assist the disadvantaged within our service area in their efforts to rise above poverty by providing needed services to enable each individual to function at his or her own improved financial, physical, mental and social level.

A comprehensive plan of care for each resident is implemented to ensure individual goals are achieved. We have registered nurses and certified nursing assistants as well as visits from psychiatrists, podiatrists, dentists and hospice.
Rehab Services - Our therapy staff is anxious to meet you, evaluate your needs, start you on your personalized rehabilitation program and make your stay here pleasant and productive. Our goal is to get you back to your prior level of function as quickly as possible.
We provide Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy. Your physician will decide which of these you should receive. We strive to get you evaluated your first day unless you arrive later in the day. If that is the case, you will be seen the next day. (The only exception could be a late Friday or Saturday arrival.) After your evaluation, your therapists will develop an individualized treatment plan in conjunction with your physician.

Occupational therapy retrains patients in the activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, grooming and feeding.

Culture Change and Complete Dining Services - We strive to make each resident feel as though they are in their own home while at Warrenton Manor. Our staff honors resident choices and preferences by getting to know each resident and what their likes and dislikes are. We establish a fundamental relationship with each individual person to ensure that the needs and wants of that person are met. Our home has begun a culture change journey by respecting the choices that our residents make. For example, each resident has the opportunity to make their own daily schedule by choosing what time they will eat, when they bathe, what time to wake up each morning and what activities they want to do during the day. Our facility also has a complete dining service in which the resident can select what they want to eat each day. We offer a variety of nutritious meals and snacks that residents can choose from based on their individual preferences.
As of February 11th, 2017, the pantry will be open the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month, from 9AM to 1PM. Emergency services are by appointment.
