Our well-rounded program provides balanced nutrition, yoga, pet therapy, and the option to find support through both 12 step and faith-based recovery programs. We pride ourselves in our continuum of care allowing individuals to begin treatment in acute medical detox and move through residential to a vast array of outpatient treatment options where mental health conditions can be treated in our co-occurring program.

The closeness provided was great. However, it was very expensive.

I was ready when I entered Lifeline Connections. Overall, they exceeded all my expectations and gave me the tools to process.

Areas of Focus
Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

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.
