Van Dyke Addiction Treatment Center


Dick Van Dyke is a 30-bed treatment facility. Treatment services include group and individual therapy, didactic lectures and presentations which are used as a "teaching mechanism" so patients can learn more of the recovery skills needed to continue with abstinence and recovery. Services provided address the basic health care needs of each patient while addressing the specific physical, psychological and social symptoms associated with psychoactive substance abuse.

Specialties include:

  • Medication-Assisted Treatment
  • Gender-specific treatment 
  • Group and individual therapy
  • Co-occurring mental health disorders and addictions


The Van Dyke Addiction Treatment Center subscribes to the person-centered approach to treatment and provides individualized treatment within a healthcare context, recognizing that addiction is a treatable illness. Family members and friends who are supportive of the recovery process are encouraged to be actively involved with the treatment experience.

Gender-specific programs for men and women allow for treatment to be tailored to the needs of each gender. Treatment of male patients tends to focus on issues of hostility and resentment toward authority and excessive self-reliance to the neglect of support-seeking. For women patients, the focus tends to be on issues of poor self-esteem and dependency on abusive relationships.
