Glenn Swanson CADC II, MBA, a recovered addict himself, founded our facilities in 1994. He based the first site on five key principles; commitment, honesty, integrity, respect, and service. These five principles guide us in all that we do and all the care we provide.
No one is ever truly free from addiction, and so we vow never to leave anyone ‘out in the wilderness’, or struggling with their recovery unsupervised. Once we commit our knowledge and our attention to someone’s recovery, we have committed for life.
Many of the people who work within our facilities, including our founder, have experienced their own addictions. As a result of this, we can provide an honest and open environment, where those leading the discussions truly know what they’re talking about.
As well as more traditional forms of therapy and psychiatric care, we offer a variety of different recovery services, which have a really positive success rate. We offer physical therapies and personal training, yoga, art therapy and family therapies for the loved ones of our clients. There are a number of optional therapies too, such as massage and meditation.
Addiction is highly stigmatized in our society, but that stops the moment someone begins treatment with us. Helping people with their addictions is what we do, so we maintain a judgment-free environment where people can speak freely, openly and without fear. Many consider our facilities to be a safe house, or a home away from home, where they can focus on recovery with no negative outside influences.
Confidentiality is paramount within our treatment programs. If there are colleagues or family members you don’t wish us to disclose your addiction to, we never will. Everyone who enters our facility deserves privacy, as addiction is such a sensitive subject. If they don’t want to disclose it to anyone else, they don’t have to.
