Don't hide from your addiction this holiday season, Recovery Centers of America is open to help you 24/7/365. Recovery Centers of America’s main concern is patient safety, whether from their addiction, or COVID-19. RCA has implemented new policies and procedures due to COVID-19 regarding pre-screening, medical clearances and limiting exposure to those who are not RCA staff or patients. That said, addiction is a deadly disease and it is important to seek medical help. RCA continues to admit new patients 24/7. Our addiction treatment philosophy centers around offering evidence-based, individualized treatment solutions for individuals and families struggling with drug and alcohol addiction as well as co-occurring disorders. With an individualized approach to addiction treatment and a comprehensive continuum of care, we heal patients and their families from a life of active addiction and alcoholism to a life of hope and healing. We deliver comprehensive addiction treatment services in a safe and comfortable environment. Our addiction treatment services include drug and alcohol detoxification, individual and group therapy, family counseling services for both patient and family, case management, life skills training, 12 Step education, psychiatric care, individualized aftercare planning, and recovery resources designed to support patients for life. With evidence-based treatment practices at each one of our neighborhood-based locations, we offer each patient and their family the highest quality addiction treatment services and an opportunity to heal, regain hope, rebuild and recover – for life

Specialization

  • Relapse Prevention

    PRISE: a Program Designed for Patients Who Have Relapsed The path to recovery is unique to each person struggling with addiction. For some people it takes multiple attempts at recovery, and with each passing attempt they may feel less optimistic about their future. At Recovery Centers of America, we see each attempt at recovery as a sign of commitment and hope. This specialized program uses a therapeutic, evidence-based approach designed to help those for whom recovery has been elusive. PRISE (Promoting Recovery through Intensive Support and Education) focuses patients on their recovery, rather than addiction, and focuses on a bright future.
