Areas of Specialization

  • Individual Therapy
    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.

  • Detox
    Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

Amazingly luxurious facility for the price. Very well educated staff in the field. Clean and extremely caring people. Will not let you leave the facility until the Yale educated Clinical Director feels you are ready to face the world on your own. They will keep you as long as they feel you have the need right up to 90 days even if insurance does not cover the stay. Dedicated to recovery in full!
