Our treatment philosophy centers around the disease concept, recognizing addiction as a comprehensive ailment and emphasizing that the recovery process should mirror this holistic perspective.

Your greatest opportunity for lifelong recovery.

Our treatment approach is based on the disease concept. As addiction is an all-encompassing disease, we believe that recovery needs to be the same. Therefore, we address all aspects of a person’s recovery: Physical, Emotional, Behavioral, and Spiritual. We use a variety of therapeutic approaches, individualized to suit each client’s experiences and goals.

Our campus location and involvement with the recovery community, gives clients the opportunity to become connected to community-based recovery support groups. This is crucial for lasting recovery. Family involvement and support are also significant components of healthy recovery and is included in our treatment programs.
