Reviews at a Glance
- 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.
- Aftercare Support
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
- Family Program
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Jeff Howard, LPN - CEO
Kevin O'Grady, MS, CRADC - Clinical Director
Kevin has been involved in the field of drug and alcohol counseling for over 10 years. Growing up in Georgia, addiction was prevalent in his own household. After his own battle with drugs and alcohol as a young man, he found a natural passion to help others find a way to break away from the misery of drugs and alcohol dependence. This passion prompted Kevin to begin a career studying and understanding the various techniques in which to approach and treat patients with drug dependence. Through his many opportunities working in health care, Kevin has developed the understanding that addiction is a disease that needs to be treated with time, care, and understanding. As a member of long-term recovery himself, Kevin is able to promote the values of honesty and integrity in his daily practice.
Geffen Liberman, CRADC, CPC, LISAC - Professional Relations Consultant
Geffen has been in the field of addiction work for over 17 years. Having gotten clean and sober at a young age, it has been his passion to help other people experience the joy and freedom of recovery. After moving to the Kansas City area in 2004, Geffen quickly fell in love with the people and the sense of community found there. He wanted to be a part of bringing a first class treatment program to KC and is overjoyed at the opportunity to be a part of what Midwest Recovery Centers is doing. Geffen is based in Arizona and will be spending time between both areas, promoting Midwest Recovery to the vast addiction treatment community in AZ and spending as much “on the ground” time as possible in KC.
