Envisioning life after drug and alcohol addiction calls for healing and restoration on every level — body, mind and spirit.
Our approach to addiction treatment is a holistic one, seeking to restore hope and health to individuals who come to us out of painful, self-destructive patterns. It’s not enough to end a physical dependency through successful medical detox. On the other side of that first step, the recovering alcoholic or addict must have the right support in place to break those old habits and replace them with new ones.
