NorthPoint Recovery Philosophy
We are proud to be accredited by The Joint Commission and are a 12-step based program.
Northpoint Recovery is dedicated to providing a safe, therapeutic environment where those struggling with addiction can build a foundation for their recovery and gain a clear vision of hope. We live by the following values: commitment to excellence, doing good for others, engaging in innovative empirical based treatment, and showing respect to all.
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.
We respect and honor all individuals reaching for recovery.
