We believe that treatment should be approached from a bio-psycho-social perspective: the inter-relationship of the physical, mental and societal contributions to pain and suffering. Our addiction treatment philosophy mandates: 1- that we meet a person where they are without judgement 2- that a person is in a state of readiness to accept that they need help. 3- That they take primary responsibility for their
improvement. 4- They agree that medication is a stabilizing agent (available but not a requirement) for the primary treatment which is psychotherapy, individual and/or group. Without these prerequisites addiction care here will likely not meet goals. 5- we believe all people are equal and possess innate goodness. 6- we encourage peer support groups, and are open to new and radical ideas.
