  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

For someone who has been to multiple treatment centers, I can honestly say Center for healing has been the best. I wasn't just another number here. The counselors are amazing and actually care about you. The owner is easily accessible and is heavily involved. I was supported every step of the way in my recovery.

I came here for IOP for 3 weeks. I have been to several other facilities around this area, this one is by far the worst in the area. I mean this with all my heart, I cannot even describe how terrible of service this place will provide. They take people into their program who have absolutely no intention of getting sober and do not care. Staff here and completely unable to gain control of the groups. Half the people will literally go in another room and sleep, while most of the other people are on their phones not paying attention at all. If staff truly cared to help they would force ppl to participate in groups and create a much more therapeutic setting. Do not waste your time coming here. Do not even get me started on the cost of this place. It is so astronomically higher than other places in the area. Absolutely horrendous treatment and they have no excuse. Please do not give this place any business. They are truly causing more harm than good and have no idea how to treat addiction. Hopefully they will be out of business soon.

I finally found a place where I felt like I mattered. And I was able to speak my counselor whenever I needed. Can't think of any weaknesses. All I know is that I finally feel like I matter.
