You are Important
Our mission is to help individuals escape the chaos of their addiction and lead healthier lives with long-term recovery. We believe in helping students complete their education because they are the frontline workers who help others. Working in the areas of the helping professions such as addiction treatment, counseling, social work, nursing, or related fields is a labor of love.
What We Do
In our addiction treatment facilities across the U.S. we provide comprehensive, compassionate rehabilitation services for those struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health issues. Our CARF Accredited treatment facilities support individualized treatment plans, a dual diagnosis curriculum that uses research-based therapies in a setting that offers well-appointed amenities.
