Transformations Drug & Alcohol Treatment Center Philosophy
Transformations Treatment Center offers men and women a safe and comfortable home-like environment for alcohol and drug addiction treatment. All programs at Transformations Treatment Center are client-focused and dedicated to helping individuals build a solid foundation for lifelong sobriety. The comprehensive, compassionate and unique treatment helps build a foundation for a healthy recovery and sober future. All programs have a low ratio of clients to staff from licensed mental health counselors to master-level therapists.
Areas of Specialization
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
