At Lasting Recovery, we believe that effective treatment for recovery from alcohol and drug addictions as well as co-occurring disorders such as anxiety and depression, PTSD and bipolar disorder, must be facilitated by a licensed and certified multidisciplinary team and include education, group therapy and wellness activities. Our methods of treatment include neurobiological, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, motivational, wellness programming and family systems perspectives. We encourage participation in community support while in treatment including twelve-step and other recovery groups. In addition we believe weekly random drug and alcohol screening, along with family education groups, and unlimited Aftercare, are essential for long term recovery.
