We provide comprehensive support for individuals who want to reduce chemical dependency and regain control of their lives.
A group of adults take comfort in each other as they meet in therapy.

Our approach to care

We provide evidence-based, compassionate care for persons with substance use disorders and related problems. Our clinical programs bring together the best available assessment tools and treatments, ranging from psychotherapy to medication.

Substance use disorders are thought to be caused by an interplay of biological, social and developmental factors, as well as psychological characteristics. Recovery often requires first dealing with the substance use and then addressing possible underlying issues. Successful recovery requires sustained attention to the biological, psychological and social contributors to addiction.


Our experts in addiction and recovery have an emphasis on the following:

  • Evaluation and consultation
  • Psychiatric treatment
  • Individual, group and substance-use therapy based on your unique treatment needs to optimize outcomes
