Treatment Philosophy

Our treatment philosophy is based on an understanding that alcoholism and other psychoactive substance dependencies are complex, treatable diseases with biological, psychological, and social aspects. Individuals suffering from these diseases often experience physical and medical problems, may have co-existing psychiatric disorders, and often have difficulty managing interpersonal relationships and finding and maintaining employment.

The inpatient rehabilitation program is an intensive, highly structured program that offers treatment based on a comprehensive assessment and specific needs of the individual.
