A Better Today Recovery Services (ABT) provides evidence-based treatment for those who are struggling with substance addiction and co-occurring disorders. The methods we utilize are the latest and most advanced approaches that have been proven most effective in the medical and psychological fields. Our Masters level therapists conduct individual assessments in order to develop the treatment plan that is specific and tailored to each individual’s needs. Each treatment plan incorporates evidence-based treatment strategies that will balance your program and focus you on a path of recovery and sobriety. A Better Today recognizes the necessity of behavioral and emotional shifts that were the causes of addiction and treats clients accordingly. We understand that very often, drugs and alcohol are not the problem, rather they were used as a solution to underlying conflicts. We help clients develop healthy alternatives to drugs and alcohol as means of coping by conquering harmful emotions and thoughts. Services like cognitive behavioral therapy, music and art therapy, nutrition and fitness, group and individual counseling, and life skill coaching are just some of the treatment strategies we incorporate to help develop coping skill and life tools. A Better Today genuinely cares about your journey through recovery and will focus the end of your treatment on relapse prevention, developing a strong support system with family and friends and finding a sober living community in your area to help introduce or reintroduce you to a lifestyle that is drug free.

As a primary care doctor I never saw people actively change, those who have diabetes continue to have diabetes as they never change their diet. For heart disease, very rarely did my patients change their lifestyle to better their lives. You do not see people really changing. In addiction medicine, the client’s actively change their lives and practice the skills learned in treatment to maintain sobriety. People really do change their lives to get better, and I love seeing that. “ - Michael Carlton, M.D.More
