SHAR is all about empowering people to take control of their lives. While helping thousands of people over decades, our experience has discovered the age-old irony- that you can only take and regain control of your life after you learn to let go. And herein, lies the problem; letting go or stopping. Whether your dilemma centers around alcohol, heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs or any combination of these or other drugs, at SHAR, we begin the process of change. From the start we teach and show you how your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors lead to and perpetuate your problems, and how working with us can provide you a way out.

Reviews at a Glance
- 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.
- Residential Treatment
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
