Areas of Focus
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.

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.

Holistic Therapy

Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

Alumni Testimonials
  • The Team at ARC was incredibly competent and cared very much about me reclaiming my life from addiction. With their help I am now more than 12 months clean. They helped me find employment and meaning in my life. The Aware Care program was different from anything else available. Their treatment model was extremely effective and turned my life around. I literally can’t thank them enough. I would say to anyone struggling with addiction and considering this route, that it's definitely worth your time and effort. What do you have to lose, other than the sickness in your soul?
  • We contacted Aware and were impressed with their experience with addiction philosophy of a one-year period of treatment, in-home. We loved that Aware kept us informed of the issues being worked on and resolved one by one. I’ll admit that we were concerned with the cost of the program, but what price is too much when your son or daughter’s life is at stake? We choose to look at the fee as if it was a 5th year of college. We thank Aware for giving us back our son and helping Jonathan to reclaim his life from drugs & alcohol.
  • I was a chronic pain patient from doing extreme sports, and got addicted to opiates. My mom found ARC and I knew it was different than what’s available. I’d tried numerous times to get clean by myself, and had relapsed within weeks of getting out of treatment. I started the ARC program and it was different. The team was amazing and caring, and treated me like a friend and family member. ARC worked with me for a full year and helped my family recover too. I am 2 years sober and have never been so happy with the person I am.
  • I’d been to over a dozen treatment centers in the past decade. Facing over 5 years in prison for yet another drug offense, I was doing 85 bags of heroin a day, and was hopeless. My therapist suggested I try something different - Aware Recovery Care. I sit here, 3.5 years later with 3.5 years of sobriety, and a peace and happiness that I thought was out of reach. The program itself was amazing. It wasn’t in a bubble, it was in real life with structure and support. ARC didn’t just teach me recovery, they helped me live it.
  • After seeing the news I told my husband about ARC and we were intrigued. Our daughter was suffering from addiction and needed help. The cost of ARC for a year compared to a month or two of the treatment centers she’d been to before. This was our daughter’s life. She had a 2% chance of success, and is now over 2 years sober and she is finishing school this year. We are grateful to the ARC team for walking with our daughter and us for a year, and as a result have allowed us all to be a family again.
  • Everything out there is the same animal but with different clothing. Go away to treatment, come home, go to 90 meetings in 90 days, and see a therapist. Some suggest aftercare for 6 months to a year. I tried all that. Bottom line – nothing worked for me but the Aware program. It was exactly what I needed. They didn’t tell me what not to do, they showed me how to live my life and they walked with me through it. I'm the first to recommend ARC. I have my life back. Peace of mind and sobriety is priceless
