Addiction Recovery

We offer an individualized approach to the assessment and treatment of alcohol and substance dependence in a world class hospital.  Our staff is comprised of licensed and certified counselors and social workers who work individually and in groups with patients to provide thoughtful and caring treatment of addiction.  We understand the stress and anxiety that often accompany the realization that a problem has developed and know how concerns about family and work responsibilities can interfere in a person’s willingness to seek help.  At the Addiction Recovery Program we can provide an opportunity for a confidential evaluation and discuss the treatment options available through our program.  Our medical director will meet with you personally to determine the best level of care to meet your needs.  We offer residential and outpatient treatment; many of our patients have been successfully treated in our Outpatient Program, which allows an individual to attend programming from 8:30am – 3:00pm, Monday through Friday.  This enables a patient to meet family obligations while still receiving treatment for an addiction.

Many aspects of our program are highlighted in the following pages. Please feel free to contact us by telephone or email if you have any questions. A response can be expected within one working day.
