Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ayers "With alcohol & drug addiction, patients face a long journey towards sobriety. We help patients reclaim their lives, with individualized recovery plans.

These can help reduce damage to the brain caused by alcohol & substance use, and reduce cravings, providing the opportunity to participate and benefit from treatment. We are supportive & caring; we'll help you to get drug- and alcohol-free, & stay that way"
