  • Alternative to 12 Step Based Treatment

    As an alternative to traditional 12 step treatment, we offer a treatment approach that helps answer each client's questions as to why thing are happening the way they are in their life. We do this through evidence-based practices integrated for an individualized treatment plan. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, Gastalt and experiential treatment are some examples of the different modalities that will be utilized.
