A Better Today Recovery Services Philosophy
A Better Today Recovery Services (ABT) offers evidence-based treatment for those who are struggling with drug and/or alcohol addiction. Our therapists conduct individual assessments to develop the treatment plan that is specific and tailored to each individual’s needs while they are in treatment.
Each treatment plan integrates evidence-based treatment strategies and life coaching that will help them focus their path of recovery and sobriety. We understand that drugs and alcohol are not the problem, rather they were used as a coping mechanism for other problems like co-occurring disorders or trauma.
Services like music and art therapy, fitness and nutrition, cognitive behavioral therapy, group and individual counseling, and life skill coaching are some of the strategies we utilize to help develop coping skills. A Better Today cares about each person’s journey through recovery. A Better Today focuses on relapse prevention, developing a strong support system with family and friends and finding a sober living community in the Portland, OR to help introduce or reintroduce you to a lifestyle that is drug free.
Areas of Specialization
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
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.
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Learn how to properly take care of yourself and maintain a job so that your sober lifestyle doesn’t feel so overwhelming right after treatment.
Individualized treatment plans to address co-occurring disorders that may be the cause of your addiction.

Rebuilding relationships with family for a healthy support system.
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.
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!
This was my first and hopefully my only treatment I will go to. I met some amazing people throughout my time here. I learned a lot about myself while working with an amazing team of therapist and life coach. The staff here are amazing, they really care about each and every client here. They went out of their way to ensure that all my needs were met and all my clinical needs were met as well. I did not realize how bad off I was and how much help I really needed.
Those suffering from the pains of addiction can turn to A Better Today Recovery Services. They assist with detoxification, recovery and rehabilitation processes. The staff support is the best I have seen out of the 15 rehabs I have been too. If you want to change your life around, go to A Better Today. They save lives.
Best decision I have ever made for myself to go to abt treatment. The staff is great met many people I'm honored to call my friends. I have and will always be grateful to abt for helping me get my life back on track again.
