Specialization

  • Intensive Outpatient (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.
  • 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.

This facility is excellent! They truly are here for the patients and actually care what happens to them. I would recommend my family member to go to this facility if they needed it. They provide meals, therapists, medical care, housing and honestly great staff that make the clients feel apart of the team and help them on their journey on recovery. No facility is perfect but this one is the closest to it!!!

The alcohol and drug addiction treatment center has helped so many of my friends get clean and sober. Thanks to the incredible staff who has stuck around to maintain a positive and authentic impact on people struggling with addiction and dual-diagnosis! I highly recommend sending your loved one here!

I feel the reason I was kicked out was to keep billing my insurance. They didn’t have that many clients at the time. I would strongly pick another treatment center over Core Center

My friend’s son went there just recently. It was not a good experience for him. Im guessing lack of supervision, co-ed dorms. The outpatient kids and the inpatient kids attending same meetings. Disregard for the patients needs. Basically it appears to be one big party! After doing some digging I found out that this center was purchased by some corporation up north who has never had or ran an addiction treatment company and they know little to nothing about it.

this place is absolutely horrible. the residence is in the middle of the hood and the men and women both reside in the same house. There is just people that graduated from that program that were drug addicts prior that are now counselors that just tell you what everybody else tells you about doing drugs. Meanwhile they are scheming your insurance and running a bill through the roof.
