We strive to educate everyone involved as to how the individual can best be treated, and our primary purpose is to find help for anyone who comes to us. Our mission is solidified by our treatment philosophy rooted in the 5 essential elements to beat any addiction: Believable hope. Long-term recovery is possible with a change in thinking. Believable hope is hope that leads to actual, positive change. It is manifested when an addict is immersed in a new mindset, surrounded by positive role models and learning from others who battle similar challenges. Visualize the life you want. Thoughts and attitudes have profound influences. In order to change for the better, one must specifically visualize or imagine the desired world he or she wants to create. Addicts must learn to participate in their thoughts and visualizations in an active, purposeful way. Surround yourself with winners. Choosing the right companions is a critical step in creating a new life; certain people help facilitate believable hope, just as negative relationships create poor influences. Good, positive friends and partners matter, and an addict must learn how to welcome and maintain relationships that work, and let go of ones that don’t. Put your plan into action. The initial steps in the recovery process are crucial. By setting goals, an addict accepts responsibility, creates confidence and manifests believable hope. Even if there are bumps along the way (which are common and expected), an action plan and goals for implementation are vital to personal transformation and successful recovery. Maintain the life you love. Focusing on one’s own healing, as well as recognizing progress and potential setbacks, are keys to maintaining a new lifestyle. Addicts must learn how to continue to move forward through recovery and always keep his or her eyes open, mind alert and heart set on living a healthier, happier life.
