Lifelong recovery.

We know that without follow-up treatment, the risk of relapse is high.  Research shows that people are less likely to fall back into patterns of abuse if they keep post-rehab appointments, attend addiction support groups, and obtain a sponsor for continued encouragement.

Lifelong recovery

Ongoing support


A spiritual connection.
