  • They are based on a 12- step recovery foundation. Almost all of the employees are recovering addicts as well as the counselors! Not enough beds for the number of addicts wanting the help they deserve. There is a high success rate with this treatment. If they feel you need longer term help for you addiction they seek it for you. They make sure you do not go home when you feel you are not ready! They are very caring and also very educated on addicition and the disease.
