We believe that alcohol and drug addiction is a chronic, life threatening, but highly treatable disorder caused by multiple factors and often characterized by frequent relapses. Unlike the flu or other medical disorders for which a single cause has been identified, a substance use disorder is caused by multiple factors including family history of substance abuse, biological/genetic factors, learning experiences, lack of healthy coping skills, peer pressures, and exposure to high risk situations. Due to the interaction of all these factors over time and the progressively disabling nature of addiction, recovery often involves a complex and lengthy process.
The first step of this process involves carefully gathering background information, identifying problems, explaining the program, assessing the impact substance abuse has had on you or your loved ones life, developing an appropriate course of treatment, and beginning engagement in treatment and supportive resources. We offer flexibility to accommodate your schedule. You can either schedule an appointment or walk in for the initial assessment most days of the week at our main campus as well as at our Brandon site. Both locations are easily accessible by public transportation. Anyone can make a referral. In order to schedule a confidential assessment or make arrangements for admission, call 1-855-322-2600.
