Chemical dependency is a chronic, progressive illness which exists when the use of mood altering substances causes increasingly severe life functioning problems.
Recovery is an ongoing process that is recognized when the individual's physical, psychological, emotional, social, interpersonal, vocational, and spiritual aspects of living have begun to normalize and there is a resumption of stability and hope for the future.
Aggressively addressing the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of addiction is our primary concern. We will treat each client with flexibility and as a multi-faceted individual, deserving of personalized treatment planning.
