Treatment Center Setting
Ambrosia Treatment Center Philosophy
Located on a secluded 44-acres, the Medford center offers comprehensive addiction treatment with an industry-leading reputation for qualiy care. Ambrosia provides safety and comfort while facilitating medical, therapeutic and holistic healing. Clients acquire the tools to build a solid foundation for a fulfilling and productive life without alcohol or drugs. While other treatment centers talk about individualized treatment plans, the concept is fully ingrained into everything Ambrosia does. The facility is committed to complete, lasting recovery.
Areas of Specialization
Industry-leading continued care helps clients reintegrate back into the “real world” and actually maintain sobriety. From daily outpatient treatment at one of our facilities to halfway housing, the continued care options are personalized to the best interest of each client. Clients and loved ones come together with their full clinical team and Outreach Coordinators to devise a plan that will prevent relapse and continually reinforce recovery.
Individualized treatment plans consisting of intense counseling and education allow clients to get to the core of the issue, while also teaching coping and life skills to prevent future relapse. Any underlying or addiction-induced mental health issues are also dealt with under 24-hour supervision. The specialized programs build a healing foundation that is necessary to maintain a lifetime of recovery.
Family & Alumni Support
Continued guidance and reinforcement is critical for both the client and loved ones. E-therapy and education helps family members support recovery in a healthy way and repair the destruction addiction causes. While Family Wellness starts on your first phone call, support is always available. Since addiction is a lifelong battle, alumni support is also available 24/7 with personal advice and local resource planning. Regular events and a buddy system further offer continued accountability.
Ambrosia was there for me when I wasn't there for myself.
Coming to Ambrosia, I didn't know what to expect. As soon as I settled in, I knew I had made the right decision. Moving away from my home up north was very uncomfortable at first, but Ambrosia made me feel very welcomed and cared about. I've never seen a treatment center where the counselors care as much as these do. It was a life-changing and insightful experience, to say the least."
My experience with Ambrosia has been wonderful. They are very helpful in teaching clients about the disease, being there for mental and emotional support and spreading hope back into your heart. They take their job very professionally while maintaining personal care for each client. Its amazing to know that there is a place addicts can go to get the top level of care needed for a successful.
Ambrosia was a very rewarding experience for me. It is not just a drug-free institution. A place where addiction not only ends, but the core issues, which led you to the point where you needed rehabilitation, are addressed. This was truly the most rewarding experience of my life, where I know more about myself, my addiction, and what it is I want for the rest of my life.
There were times when my son was being unreasonable and the Wellness team reached out to me and my son, to bring peace and assist me in establishing boundaries. I can honestly say that I have learned the difference between support and enabling. I would highly recommend Ambrosia to anyone who has a loved one suffering from the disease of addiction.
The therapy at Ambrosia has changed my opinion on therapy overall. Without the help of my therapist here, I would have never talked about the things that I was able to start working through while I was in this treatment center. It is a supportive environment with the structure needed to heal and grow as a person. This experience helped me get in touch with who I am outside of being an addict. I am more than grateful to Ambrosia and the team that was here to love me until I could begin love myself.
