We firmly believe addiction is a treatable disease. As an organization we strive to be on the forefront of all aspects of treatment for all people suffering from the devastating effects of substance use disorders. As an organization we intend to be the voice for all of those whom society believes to be voiceless.
We are committed to client-centered and effective practices to ensure our treatment is geared toward sustained recovery from addiction. We rely on our Core Values to provide the best quality treatment to our clients and their families. These Core Values are:
- Integrated/holistic approach to client care
- Use of evidence-based practices
- Ease of access for clients and community entities
We only employ professionally trained mental health intervention and substance abuse counselors. Our Masters and Doctoral level therapists provide quality care in most treatment modalities, including group, individual, and family psychotherapies. We are also capable of meeting the behavioral health needs of clients through an integrated, trauma-informed , and multidisciplinary team approach including a psychiatric nurse, social worker/licensed mental health counselor, and psychiatrist.
