ADDICTION IS A TREATABLE DISEASE

It can affect anyone from any background or economic status. It is a myth to think it could never happen in “my” family or that it’s confined to a particular class of people. No one is immune to the possibility of becoming enslaved to a substance. It has been said, addiction will cost you more than you wanted to pay, keep you longer than you wanted to stay and hurt you more than you ever thought possible. Addiction is smart, smooth, subtle and has no respect for any person. It is the wise person that never underestimated the power addiction has once it's able to hook someone

  • PREVENTION - Helping prevent adult, teens and children within our communities from becoming enslaved to any substance through education and increased awareness.
  • TREATMENT - Helping anyone enslaved to any substance through interventions, short &/or long term care, in-patient & outpatient programs, and holistic therapy (psychological/emotional, medical/physical, social, intellectual, and spiritual).
  • SUPPORT - Helping those no longer addicted to a substance by providing ongoing support for them and their families, helping them to restore their lives and relationships, and gain direction through discovering their life purpose.

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