Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Levinson "Board Certified in Addiction Medicine, Drs. Levinson and Baumgarten believe that it is critical for patients to be educated about their addiction.

Their interaction are one on one and are provided in a tranquil, unpressured environment. This facility is not run like a "mill". You are given as much time as you need. This program is for YOU."

Dr Levinson and his staff, Hillary are without a doubt the best chance you have to finally start to realize, there is a method to this madness. They went out of there way to make it as simple and comfortable as it could be. And the unique way Dr Levinson takes his time and explains things I never had explained to me, in that way and u can slowly start to breathe as weight lifts off your shoulders.
