American Addiction Centers National Rehabs Directory

The Assisted Recovery Centers of America (ARCA)

6651 Chippewa Street, Suite 224, Saint Louis, Missouri, 63109
The Menzies Institute of Recovery from Addiction (MIRA) understands that addiction is an illness. And just like any other illness, it requires comprehensive treatment that is thorough and compassionate. The residential rehab is dedicated to providing clients with effective and comfortable care, including detox and anti-craving medications, as well as psychiatric and behavioral therapy. Treatment programs are individualized to meet each client’s needs and ensure that sobriety will be maintained after the program is completed.

Facility Highlights

  • Aftercare Planning
  • Nutritional Counseling

Specialization

  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • Holistic Therapy

    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.

Out patient treatment - daily meetings with addiction counselors. Not a 12-step program; outpatient therapy; education; daily meetings.

They where more one on one approach with my son then i had seen in the past BUT their main strenght was combining mental physical and medical treatment as a whole..using new medical treat li to help him could be a little better with long term after care like meetings... he still sees the dr monthy though loved how this facility uses everything out there to help and does a combined treatment plan...the mental and physical health being addressed as just as important as the addiction. The use of new medical drugs shot with tradition rehab treatment is what worked. It gave him that extra fighting chance to suceed

This place is unethical. My son was worse coming away from the place than before he went in for assistance. This facility should be investigated.
