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.
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
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.

How Our Helpline Works
For those seeking addiction treatment for themselves or a loved one, the Recovery.org helpline is a private and convenient solution.
Calls to any general helpline (non-facility specific 1-8XX numbers) for your visit will be answered by American Addiction Centers (AAC).
We are standing by 24/7 to discuss your treatment options. Our representatives work solely for AAC and will discuss whether an AAC facility may be an option for you.
Our helpline is offered at no cost to you and with no obligation to enter into treatment. Neither Recovery.org nor AAC receives any commission or other fee that is dependent upon which treatment provider a visitor may ultimately choose.
