Treatment was based upon my needs independent of a set treatment program that everyone needs to adapt to. Staff and the facility. The program administrators.


I have been sober for almost 3years now & these nurses treat me like I\'m a junkie. Just trying to get in to see the doctor is nearly impossible and they NEVER answer the phones to help. Getting medic...

Areas of Focus
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.

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.
