Addiction to alcohol or other drugs is considered a spectrum disorder, meaning the condition can be classified as mild, moderate or severe. Chemical addiction is recognized as a brain disease and as a chronic progressive disease with a tendency towards relapse. Through our programs, a special emphasis is placed on a client’s self-assessment for recognition, understanding and acceptance of the addictive disease. The goals of recovery for our clients include physical, psychological, behavioral, social and spiritual changes to reduce risk of relapse.
