Our mission is to provide quality, individualized, outpatient assessment and treatment to individuals and families struggling with alcohol/drug abuse and other addictive disorders.
We understand that alcohol, drug and other addictive disorders develop over time and affect people’s physical, mental, and spiritual states. Our treatment approach is holistic, incorporating the best of mental health and addiction recovery strategies. We see the community as a potential resource in recovery, and encourage clients to design their own support network using AA, NA, the Turning Point Center, and other service organizations.
Adult Substance Use Treatment Options
