MEET OUR TEAM
We specialize in a cognitive behavioral methodology which is an active, structured treatment that has been proven to be highly effective treating addiction. The strength of this approach is the practicality in implementing new thoughts and behaviors which one can immediately begin to apply in daily life. Our team utilizes a learned model of addiction and corresponding evidence-based techniques which often produce positive changes in a limited amount of time.
