Specialization

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

    EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
  • Family Program

    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.

I�ve bee. n to a couple IOP programs and the thing that sets Aspire apart from the others are the employees. It makes a considerable difference in MY recovery when you can tell that the staff genuinely care about you and are not just there for a paycheck. I could really connect with the therapist and that�s hard to find, for me at least. The weekly outings are great! Hikes, kayaking, beach, volleyball, basketball, movies. Aspire has allowed me to start rebuilding the foundation in my family relationships and I�m beyond grateful for that.
