  • PREVENTION - Helping prevent adults, teens and children within our communities from being enslaved to any substance by promoting education and increased awareness.
  • TREATMENT - Helping anyone enslaved to a substance through interventions, detox, short or long-term care, inpatient and outpatient programs, and holistic therapy (including psychological, emotional, medical, physical, social, cognitive, and spiritual).
  • SUPPORT - Helping those no longer addicted to a substance restore their lives, relationships, and direction through understanding their life purpose.

Because we want people to be remembered for their recovery, not their addiction
