AARC is a care based treatment program that focuses on primary substance abuse disorder as well as co-occurring disorders. We step away from the typical business based model that has plagued the industry.We do this through our three phase program Recover,Rebuild,and Rise. With a heavy focus on life event trauma we seek out the root cause of addiction and help to teach, as well as implement healthy coping skills and interpersonal development. AARC also offers a unique approach through the recovery workshop, a place where clients can express themselves in a safe way through various types of art therapy. The recovery workshop also offers a DIY home maintenance program to help provide a set of basic skills necessary to re-enter the workforce. Another aspect of what we offer is the "Through the Archway" program. It is a spiritual based inpatient program that is led by its founder and creator Peter Marinelli. Peter has been a huge impact on 12 step communities and helps his clients to thrive in a "life on life's terms" environment. Over all, Above All Recovery Center is a place where those suffering from addiction can come to re-create their lives.
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
- Family Program
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it's important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person's unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
- Aftercare Support
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
- 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.
I want to express my gratitude for all of the kindness you expressed for the relationship I am now able to rebuild. For the help you contributed and the hopes you gave me and continue to give me. I am now able to accept my past and understand it all happened. You have done so much for me. Thank you for your generosity and all of the tools I now have at my disposal to combat addiction.Julie N.
Just wanted to say thank you for the support that you gave me on my first journey to become a sober person. I am grateful that I got a chance to be a part of the above all family.

The care I was given during my stay here at above all was absolutely exceptional! You made me feel at home and comfortable enough to get it all out on the table and finally deal with the demons that had been holding me back so long.Amy B.
Above All is the best life class I have ever taken. I wish this was part of my teachings as a young man. Thank you for being part of the fellowship.Jeff D.
