Treatment

Drug and alcohol abuse is often complex in nature and permeates every facet of an individual's life. The individual's personal health and functioning within the family unit suffers, obligations in the workplace suffer and community interface suffers. Individuals who seek treatment are looking to break free from the bonds of addiction and improve their quality of life. A full continuum of treatment includes intervention, detoxification, inpatient rehabilitation, outpatient treatment and intensive outpatient, family and co-dependency treatment.
