 Our Philosophy of Care

Collaboration, compassion and respect set the tone for the care we provide.  We recognize that addiction creates isolation and thrives on it, so creating community and forging connections is fundamental to our philosophy of care. Our treatment approach creates therapeutic communities in which patients, clients, families and staff alike contribute to the healing process as they share activities, build relationships and interact throughout the day. Careful attention is paid to creating an environment of safety, trust and honesty as people achieve recovery and improve the quality of their lives. We believe that the best outcome is achieved when our treatment approach is thoughtfully chosen to meet individual needs – whether it’s support for long-term recovery or taking that first step.

“They opened the door for me to the world of recovery. I had to roll up my sleeves and do the work, but the staff and their well-developed program of support gave me the confidence and skills to fully embrace a sober life.”
