signMISSION
The mission of Addictions Recovery Center is to provide individuals and their families the opportunity to choose a healthier way of life.

CORE PURPOSE
To inspire hope and healthy choices through education and supportive relationships so individuals and families may recover from the disease of addiction.

VISION
To guide a human life from pain and fear and despair to joy and serenity and hope, for a lifetime of complete healing for individuals, families – and the community.

PHILOSOPHY
Addictions Recovery Center’s primary purpose shall be that which supports or provides services related to addictions, behavioral and related health or human service issues, including: prevention, withdrawal management, treatment and recovery support for individuals, families, and the community.

The Board of Directors will set policies to manage, conduct and control the business, assets and affairs of the corporation, and to promulgate programs operating a continuum of services for persons suffering from problems connected with addiction including alcohol, drugs, gambling, or other identified dependency and behavioral health issues. Services provided will utilize best practices recognized within the industry and consistent with licensing expectations.

We believe individuals with coexisting mental health issues should have both disorders treated in an integrated way. Because substance and mental health disorders often occur in the same individual, patients presenting for either condition should be assessed and treated for the co-occurrence of the other type of disorder.

Medications can be an important element of treatment for clients, especially when combined with counseling and other behavioral therapies. This can be effective stabilizing opiate dependency, alcoholism, and nicotine addictions. For mental health issues, both behavioral treatment and medications can be critically important.

We believe that 12 Step community support (like Alcoholics Anonymous) is a most effective lifetime intervention. We will introduce and encourage clients and their families to utilize these resources.
