Paying for Treatment
- Insurance is Accepted
- Financing is Available
- Medicare is not Accepted
- Medicaid is not Accepted
Our treatments are strategically designed to correct both addiction and mental health issues. We address the physical, emotional and spiritual facets of each individual to create the proper stage for lasting recovery. We understand the medical and biochemical causes of mental health symptoms and addiction, and we treat these underlying problems with scientifically proven methods of integrated treatment. Lack of brain balancing nutrients, toxic drugs and other poisons we may have accumulated over a lifetime can create drug and alcohol cravings as well as interrupt the balance of brain chemicals that are normally associated with a healthy mental state. We not only address this balance with customized top-shelf programs for nutrition and detoxification but also with medication tapering, counseling, exercise and yoga, supplementation, organic diets, acupuncture, colonics, and other environmental medicine therapies.

Reviews at a Glance
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
- 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.
