  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

    This facility has been a lifesaver for me. DR. is the most professional friendly doctor I've met in my entire life, there's been times on visits or he's actually sit and smoke one with me for 30 to 45 minutes without making me feel like I was rushed he actually cares about the patient and not the money for everything else that comes along with me and Dr. Anybody that says differently about this facility obviously as other motives and are putting reviews out there that are entirely untrue thanks to this facility I have been clean and sober of opiate addiction for just over 4 years and no other facility could come near this, my wife is finally resting easy knowing that I'm off of the opiates and heroin, and every time I go in to visit my doctor monthly he tells me his new off Suboxone and clean total in every month at the jumps at least 5 to 10 people this Dr, is a LIFE SAVER, no question about it he wanted that says differently is a bold-faced liar. I was very skeptical to begin with he assured me and my wife both the process and how it works and he's became almost like family to us. If it wasn't for him I would be currently dead or incarcerated. So if you're mad that the doctors won't give you drugs please don't post bad reviews post the truth ,there that people just like I used to be that need to know this is a great facility and they need to get the help that they deserve.... but I do spend close to $400 monthly on my visit, but guess what I used to spend $400 in a matter of 3 to 5 days with my herion habit.... please post the truth to sum it all up in great facility great Dr great reception is great and darst very punctual and very down-to-earth.
      This place treats you like dirt. They dont care about helping anyone. I cancelled my appointment when they called to confirm 24 before appt. I canceled because I wad affected by yhe floods around me. I called to reschedule. And i was told they are not accepting me as a new patient because I didn\'t call to cancel. Eventhough I technically did cancel 24 hrs in advance. They are ridiculous.
