Friendliness and helpfulness, food choices and caffeine policy were no not the best. I would happily recommend this facility as they helped on my journey to sobriety immeasurably.

The person entering treatment must want to get better; if not, the facility cannot do it for them. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

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.

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.
