Treatment Insights

Elevate is a modern and empowering approach to addiction treatment. We don't believe addiction is an incurable disease but can be overcome and put in the past through hard work and dealing with issues.
Our program is Non-12 Step (we use SMART Recovery) and we provide skills and tools to our clients so that they can more effectively manage their own lives and experience happiness without the need for drugs or alcohol.
See website for entire philosophy.

12 step didn't work for me. A longer, more holistic program like this is what it took to get me sober

Areas of Focus
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.

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.
