What Sets Us Apart

Each Client is Unique. Your Story Defines Your Treatment.

We personally tailor our programs to fit each individual. Our therapists and counselors know that various factors such as your family, background and experiences contributed to addiction. Since these factors are different for everyone, treatment will be different for everyone. Our programs are modeled around the 12-step programs, proven treatment modalities such as cognitive based therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational therapy and wellness & nutrition.
