I was a tough case, forcing staff to work harder. The individual and group treatment for depression, drug dependence, and sex addiction were outstanding. Peer reinforcement was highly effective.

Areas of Focus
Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol detox is the first step in the recovery process to treating alcoholism. Stopping drinking causes withdrawal symptoms, which can be severe as the body continues to crave alcohol. Unfortunately there is no way to predict how someone will respond to quitting after drinking frequently, heavily, or after many years.

Heroin Addiction

Heroin withdrawal symptoms can start suddenly and last for a long time. While commonly thought to be less dangerous than alcohol or barbiturate withdrawal, heroin withdrawal can still lead to death of individuals whose health has degraded as a result of their disease.
