A Better Today Recovery Services Philosophy
A Better Today Recovery Services (ABT) provides evidence-based treatment for those who are struggling with substance addiction and co-occurring disorders. The methods we utilize are the latest and most advanced approaches that have been proven most effective in the medical and psychological fields. Our Masters level therapists conduct individual assessments in order to develop the treatment plan that is specific and tailored to each individual’s needs. Each treatment plan incorporates evidence-based treatment strategies that will balance your program and focus you on a path of recovery and sobriety. A Better Today recognizes the necessity of behavioral and emotional shifts that were the causes of addiction and treats clients accordingly. We understand that very often, drugs and alcohol are not the problem, rather they were used as a solution to underlying conflicts. We help clients develop healthy alternatives to drugs and alcohol as means of coping by conquering harmful emotions and thoughts. Services like cognitive behavioral therapy, music and art therapy, nutrition and fitness, group and individual counseling, and life skill coaching are just some of the treatment strategies we incorporate to help develop coping skill and life tools. A Better Today genuinely cares about your journey through recovery and will focus the end of your treatment on relapse prevention, developing a strong support system with family and friends and finding a sober living community in your area to help introduce or reintroduce you to a lifestyle that is drug free.
Areas of Specialization
Health and Fitness
Many who have abused drugs know that your health and physical well-being are not top priority during active addiction. A Better Today teaches you the importance of a balance nutrition and encourages staying active and fit. From weight lifting to yoga, this type of therapy focuses on regulating hormone releases, mediation, and stress management techniques that are beneficial to your mind, body, and soul.
A Better Today provides group therapy to help those suffering with addiction. Surrounding yourself with peers that understand the struggles and strife involved in substance abuse is important for the healing process. Emotions can be overwhelming in treatment and having like-minded people to vent, cry, and laugh with is all part of the process ABT can offer.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
For many addicts, thinking positively about their future is a challenge. The guilt and shame of their drug abuse makes it difficult to comprehend a life without the use of substances. Utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as a treatment strategy helps focus the mind and alleviate some of the negative thought patterns learned in active addiction. Relapse is an unfortunate reality for some and with CBT’s relapse prevention, our clients can have confidence in saying no the next time temptation stifles their sobriety.
At A Better Today Recovery Services, individual counseling is viewed as a foundation in effective and long lasting addiction treatment. Dedicated therapists make time to explore the root of your addiction and how best to help you over cravings and triggers come. Life coaches prepare you for the ‘real world’ when all you have known is drug abuse.

I have struggled with addiction for a long time, I have been through multiple treatment facilities and never was able to find success in sobriety, that was until I went through A Better Today. There is no treatment facility that can cure you from the disease of addiction, there is no cure, but ABT gave me a fighting chance. ABT gave me the tools I needed to utilize in order to recover from active addiction. They also introduced me to anonymous programs which is the greatest gift I've ever been given. The staff is very knowledgeable, very caring, and very sincere. When I was there, I had a therapist and a life coach, I met with each on an individual basis for one hour a week, and they helped me immensely. ABT saved my life and saved the life of many others like myself. I would recommend ABT to anyone I know that is struggling with addiction.- Adam H.
It is with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to reflect on my time spent and experiences gained while at A Better Today Recovery Services. The following may not represent how I felt or perceived my journey upon discharge but is truly a reflection of my 514 day journey thus far. Today I am very grateful for being willing to make a change in my life. The journey commenced with the initial contact with the intake staff, Rob and Cory. The willingness to fulfill my needs that these two men demonstrated was unparalleled. Matched with their ability to instill a sense hope in me, I was able to become more comfortable with the thought that there is a better way to live.- Mark
Amazing facility with amazing staff. I went through 3 other rehabs and none treated me with the love and compassion as ABT has. They treat me like family and got me to open up and address the core issues. I finally have hope!- Chris N.
I went through A Better Today's residential treatment program and would highly recommend this program to anyone with an addiction and a will to change. The incredibly warm and caring staff made my experience at their facility amazing. They gave me the tools and knowledge that I needed to stay clean and sober long after I left their program allowing me to build a full life that I never thought was possible. My parents got their son back, my sister got her brother back, and my friends got their friends back and most of all I got myself back. They truly care about each and every client and they changed my life in a major way. I highly recommend A Better Today if you or a loved one are looking for help.- Levi H.
