Biological Factor

Current Studies have shown direct correlation between substance abuse disorder and impaired brain function. When you abuse drugs, alcohol, or prescribed medication, you are causing a chemical imbalance in your brain. As such, our treatment model is designed to target body, mind and spirit to restore this imbalance and re-wire your brain so that you can stay clean, sober and healthy.

Not only is addiction a brain disease but it is chronic in nature, much like diabetes, heart disease or cancer — it requires lifelong monitoring and management.

Primary Care – Residential Treatment

Primary care consists of the first 30 – 60 days in initial treatment. We utilize this period to obtain psychological and medical testing, stabilize, develop self-knowledge and form a partnership with each individual to create a customized plan for each patient.

Extended Care – Outpatient Treatment

After the stabilization period, we work together with each individual to address behavior modification and transition real-life living by encouraging them to get into outpatient and aftercare. Duration and length of treatment depends on individual need.

Aftercare – Sober Living

For long-term success, our statistics show aftercare is key.  Individuals are encouraged to actively participate in at least 12 months of aftercare which includes continued individual and group therapy for the first year, random drug screens and the completion of working a 12 step program with a sponsor.
