Two thumbs up! I couldn\'t ask for a better place.


I am surprised that they still keep in touch with me even after I got out from the facility. I still get calls from them. They offered support when times get rough. I appreciate it very much.

Areas of Focus
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)

Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

Process Abuse Treatment

Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

    Conner D.
  • Harbor Village has saved my life. I love the entire staff, every one of them was an active part of my recovery, and I couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out!
    Jessica G.
  • I have two sons that were at Harbor Village for detox. My one son was stressing about going through withdrawals again, so he was reluctant to go anywhere to detox. I spoke to Chris NOT once, NOT twice, NOT even Three times- honestly I can't remember how many times Chris would answer my call or text, it didn't matter if it was at 11 pm or a Sunday morning. He would send my son a text letting him know they were waiting and it would be OK I can't believe how Great this detox center is!
