Addiction Treatment Services Philosophy
ATS is dedicated to supporting people who are struggling with chemical dependency issues. The drug and alcohol treatment center doesn’t focus on addiction as an illness, but instead regards each individual as a person with the strength, courage, and will to overcome their addiction and grow as a result. Residential treatment and sober living isn’t easy to live through, but ATS is committed to showing its clients that the rewards outweigh the obstacles.
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.
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
