RECOVERY IS AN IMPORTANT STEP and a major lifestyle change. You have to build new habits, ways to deal with moods, how to manage your anger and triggers, and get involved in a very different social life!  Our outpatient rehab program is an alternative to inpatient rehab because sometimes it's too costly, disrupts work and family, and isn't long term enough. You really need on-going support for all of these lifestyle changes! 

GETTING MOTIVATED is part of recovery and even if you aren't ready yet we offer the tools to help you prepare. In some cases we will ask your support system, such as your partner or family, to attend with you once or twice and be ready to help you succeed. If you don't have any support we work with you to provide it. We know motivation is essential and we may postpone starting the rehab program to help you take the steps to ensure success!  Call and find out more! 

DRUGS and ALCOHOL DEPENDENCY is caused by an uncomfortable wound up feeling inside that makes you "need something". This happens because buried feelings you don't even recognize press to be released and it creates anxiety, boredom, and a moody reaction.  Drugs and alcohol numb this but it doesn't allow any healing to occur so you stay wound up.  This can range from mild to severe but will interfere with your relationships, cloud your thinking, and may cause you to suffer from arrested development where you feel like life is passing you by.  It isn't worth it!
