Recovery is our focus for treatment of substance abuse. There are a number of options for treating substance abuse, such as medications, behavioral modification, individual and group therapies, skills training, treatment for co-existing mental health problems, and relapse prevention strategies. We practice dual-diagnosis and co-existing disorders; meaning that substance abuse is not merely a physical addiction.
