Self Description:

“State of the art assessment and treatment of biopsycho-social variables related to alchohol/chemical dependents and their families.”

Treatment Philosophy:

“Teach patients and families about the disease of alcoholism/chemical dependency and the importance of connecting with other recovering people in preparation for the next level of care.”

Position on 12 Step Involvement:

“An essential component of recovery for the majority. In combination with continuing care, it is highly effective.”

Position on Confrontation:

“Confrontation with compassion and respect is highly therapeutic for some. We call this ‘responsible concern.'”

Additional Characteristics:
