Our Approach

Substance Abuse Treatment

Traditional substance abuse treatment focuses on finding reasons not to abuse drugs and alcohol. That’s why we start with helping you find the reasons why you used in the first place.

Since opening, we’ve worked to help individuals truly and fully transcend substance abuse issues, permanently. We do this by helping you discover the true reasons and/or underlying cause of why you seek to escape through negative behaviors. After we find the root cause, we help you resolve these issues. Next, we help you develop your purpose and passions while furthering the meaning for your life.

The concept is simple. If you love who you are and what you are doing, you will not want to abuse substances as a way of life. We offer a variety of treatments including:

  • intensive outpatient care
  • one-on-one counseling
  • group and family sessions
  • holistic, alternative therapies
  • life-purpose planning
Mental Health Therapy

Our mental health treatment program focuses on the root cause. We go beyond the confusion and stigma of traditional mental health treatment. Our counselors help you discover the underlying cause(s) of your anxiety, depression, anger, shame, and/or fears.

Negative emotions are there to guide and serve us. We’ll show you how this applies to your life. Next, we go to work on helping you resolve these issues, allowing you to move forward free and unencumbered by negative emotions and influences. As you work through what you no longer want, we then help you develop what you do with your life.

We’ll help you create a life filled with passion, purpose, and meaning. A life and self which you truly want to be a part of. We don't help you become someone else, we help you become who you truly are. Our mental health treatment includes:

  • individual therapy
  • group and family sessions
  • holistic, alternative therapies
  • life-purpose planning

" Our goal and mission is to lead the fight in eliminating addiction and mental illness by inspiring hope, changing negative beliefs, discovering and healing the underlying cause, and developing and living our live's purpose. "
