Science has proven that substance use disorder is a chronic brain disease that can be managed with medical treatment. It is NOT a moral failing or a character flaw.
Our team understands that a substance use disorder does not define a person – and no two paths to recovery are the same. We help identify the internal strengths and assets of each person and offer assistance at every juncture. Whether someone is contemplating the recovery process, considering ‘cutting-back’, or is in active recovery, we meet individuals where they are and assist each person on their path toward recovery.
