Midwest Recovery Centers Philosophy
Midwest Recovery Centers strives to provide affordable, honest, and exceptional recovery support to those individuals struggling with alcohol and drug dependence. We maintain the highest treatment standards through utilization of empirically validated practices. Our clients are treated with respect and kindness in an ethical environment.
Areas of Specialization
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
