We believe that alcoholism and drug dependency are treatable medical diseases. We incorporate holistic treatments focusing on the individual’s spiritual, emotional, mental and physical needs. Our patients are treated with dignity and respect in a non-judgmental and supportive manner.

Our multidisciplinary team approach assists patients in acknowledging and overcoming alcohol and drug addiction/dependency. We also assist our patients in developing strategies to help maintain an alcohol and drug free lifestyle and to reestablish and enhance their quality of life.
