Treatment Insights

Restore Health and Wellness is a Substance Abuse treatment center for adults 18 and over. We provide treatment for alcohol and drug addiction at the inpatient level of care as well as a step-down to an Intensive Outpatient program for clients who complete phase one. Our focus is dual-diagnosis, and our treatment modalities focus on the underlying issues of the addict or alcoholic- we seek to treat the cause of the clients' abuse rather than the clients use in general. Our 45–90-day program is a combination of evidence-based psychotherapy, interactive education, and a structured living facility with 24-hour clinical staff. We believe it starts with the best clinical team. On staff, we have Licensed Therapists, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and two Board-Certified Psychiatrists. Restore is a small census luxury accommodations facility that believes in maximizing one-on-one therapy for clients as well as tailoring individual treatment plans for each client- as we believe the disease of addiction is a commonality, but the needs of each client are unique. We encourage aftercare- all clients are encouraged to participate in a substance abuse fellowship during their stay with us, and are expected to continue that participation upon completion of our program.

Areas of Focus

Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

Process Abuse Treatment

Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.

Individual Therapy

This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

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.

Alumni Testimonials
  • Restore provided a very safe environment for me to begin my recovery. The residence that I lived in was beautiful and like no house I had ever stepped foot in before. They assisted in giving me a jump start to working a twelve step program and transported us to great meetings seven days a week. Every weekend we were able to go off grounds with staff and engage in fun activities, helping show that recovery can be fun. The camaraderie was like no other place I've ever been to and the clinical staff provided me with all of my therapeutic needs. Maxine, my therapist didn't tell me what I wanted to hear but what I needed to hear. Vinse, one of Restores directors, has an open door policy and any struggle, obstacle or problem I was facing, he was able to relate to on a personal level and really walk me through my 'issues.' I am forever grateful for what Restore has done for me. I have to be honest, I’ve been in and out of facilities for years but this was my last shot at treatment before my fiancee gave birth to my first child, my daughter, and I cannot express how grateful I am for the opportunity that I was awarded at Restore.

  • When I arrived at Restore Health and Wellness on August 3rd , 2015, I was scared. I had just turned 24 years old and instead of celebrating my birthday with my family and friends the only thing going through my head was “Here we go.. another treatment center.” As a client at Restore, I was taught how to live my life without having to use drugs and alcohol. Today, I am able to look at the new people coming into Restore as mirrors, seeing myself in them. Not only did Restore Health and Wellness teach me how to see the good in other people, it showed me how to finally look in the mirror at myself, smile, and see the good in myself for the first time in a very long time.
  • Cory, You were a pleasure to deal with at such a trying time. Thank you for all of your help in guiding me through the steps of what needed to be done to get my son the care that he needed. I hope your employer realizes what an asset you are to him or her. I was also very pleased with the fact that during my sons stay at Restore he was able to open his mind and look at life differently. Hopefully this stays with him forever. I will always be grateful to all of you for your help.
