Meet the Staff
Our staff of credentialed and licensed professionals have a combined
80 plus years of experience working with the chemically dependent.

Together, this caring and supportive team has demonstrated that the
answer to long-term recovery lies not only in abstinence --- It also
requires experiencing and practicing problem-solving techniques
daily and developing a spiritual foundation in our lives.
