The Exclusive Addiction Treatment Center is a secluded, small eight-bed facility tucked away on a private estate offering a state-of-the-art non-12 step, holistic addiction treatment program. We believe to conquer addiction, it is essential to treat the whole person rather than a single symptom. We address chemical imbalances created by alcohol and drugs and focus on releasing previous trauma and unresolved pain. Our proprietary Core Belief Restructuring approach restructures the hidden beliefs that otherwise hold clients back and combines experiential learning with cognitive learning. We offer one of the most customized treatment programs in the country with exceptional services and amenities. From the very first day clients entrust themselves to our care, and running concurrent with their addiction recovery program, clients will participate in relapse prevention and our individualized New Life Direction process. Together we help clients assemble the building blocks they need to live a renewed and passionate life and teach the skills to overcome old addiction triggers. By the time clients leave The Exclusive Addiction Treatment Center, their new life has already begun! We teach clients how being authentic, vulnerable and connected will naturally take the place of addictive behaviors. We share our philosophy of non-judgment and unconditional acceptance, and love of self and others. We’re committed to creating a cocoon of safety and warmth that allows clients to immerse themselves fully into the program. We realize that when clients are facing their shadow and their past, it may be the hardest thing they’ve ever done, and we make it as comfortable as possible.
