Whether patients self-refer to our program, or are referred by a friend or medical professional, our goal is always the same: to help each patient and their loved ones understand the complexities of addiction and how to effectively manage it.
Every patient is backed by a personalized counseling team that advocates for them and provides a customized blend of services. These services include:

We accept inquiries and admissions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We will also need a consent form from the patient. First and foremost, this consent form protects the patient's right to privacy by clearly defining those entities with whom we can communicate regarding the health information we have collected and the recommended treatment plan. This form also gives the Recovery Center permission to verify medical coverage. It is imperative that we are able to reach the patient to discuss this information. If you leave a message for an admissions team member, please be sure to leave clear, complete information, including a phone number where the patient is guaranteed to be reached.

Addiction affects the entire family. At the Recovery Center, treatment is a family program. In addition to the programs tailored to meet the needs of the addict, our family program is directed to help both the addict and their co-dependents. Anxiety and stress created by keeping the "family secret" can cause physical and emotional problems in children and other family members.
Family participation historically leads to more positive outcomes for individuals who participate in a structured treatment program. Our family group sessions offer a unique opportunity to get support, information and feedback in a positive learning environment.
