Santa Fe Recovery Center Philosophy
The Santa Fe Recovery Center works with individuals to sustain lifelong recovery from alcoholism, addictions and related mental illness, by providing culturally relevant evidence-based treatment and education in partnership with other community organizations. We operate with integrity and treat each client with compassion and respect in a safe and nurturing environment.
Areas of Specialization
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
