  • Emotional Problems

    At Spencer Recovery Centers, we treat people, not problems. Our ‘whole-person’ approach gives us an appreciation of who you are as an individual and what it feels like to be in your shoes. We work with you and your family to understand everything about your life and how recovery from drug and alcohol addiction can be achieved.
  • Learning Disabilities

    At Spencer Recovery, we recognize that learning disabilities are neurological disorders that affect the brain’s ability to receive, process, store, and respond to information. We also recognize that growing up with an educational handicap can have an enormous effect on your sense of self, robbing you of the power to hope, learn, and succeed. Our specialized recovery program will you rebuild your self-esteem by providing specific educational strategies to help you overcome learning obstacles that you may have struggled with your whole life.

I’ve tried to fight my addiction, and it was so hard, but without the help of an amazing people of Spencer. I would have not made it. They are so friendly, nice and understanding; they really know what to do to help you feel better and how to get you through those really hard times. They give what your needs and give the best program that really suits for you. I just want to thank Chris Spencer and especially the staffs of Spencer Recovery for the attention and care throughout my recovery. I’m so happy to be clean and sober and I’m so happy with my life right now.
