Still owned by the same families who founded Santé, today’s high-caliber continuum of care extends from individualized assessments, detox, residential treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, transitional living, Therapeutic Intensives, Boundaries Course and alumni support services. It is our privilege to walk alongside thousands of individuals and families for 20 years of miracles – a result of our consistent cornerstone: integrity. Santé is synonymous with individualized, expert care in an intimate environment with the goal of long-term recovery. Addiction is a struggle, and healing from addiction requires individualized, hands-on help and continued follow-up. Santé Center for Healing offers compassionate, state-of-the-art treatment that extends beyond the center and into the community with aftercare programs and planning to help those recovering from addiction. In addition to a life free of addictive thinking, Santé also encourages healthy living and spirituality. Our walking trails and spacious client rooms provide a tranquil living space where quiet reflection and personal inventory can take place.

Reviews at a Glance
- Sex Addiction Treatment
The Sex Addiction Treatment Program at Santé Center for Healing begins with a comprehensive assessment that identifies individual patient needs. This assessment results in a treatment plan specifically tailored to the patient and his or her circumstances. Additionally, our approach identifies other addictive disorders which are present in the majority of our patients. It is our experience that these co-occurring addictions, as well as other mental health problems, are best addressed simultaneously.
- Santé Center Residential Treatment Programs
Santé understands that there are many challenges on the road to recovery and that addiction must be treated one step at a time. Our Intake and Admissions Counselors are qualified and knowledgeable of the specifics of treatment. Their goal is to make the admission process as smooth as possible for the patient, family and referent. Our main goal is for our patients to live a life in recovery. They learn to be aware of their issues and gain the skills to resolve them. They will know how to prevent relapses, and live without the feelings of shame or guilt that often accompany their diagnosis.
