About Us

Talbott Recovery’s Story

Dr. G. Douglas Talbott was one of the most forceful voices in advocating the recognition of alcoholism as a disease. A pioneer in educating physicians about substance abuse and in offering substance abuse treatment programs for medical professionals, Dr. Talbott created the first treatment program specifically designed to meet the requirements of physicians suffering from the disease of addiction. He was the guiding force who helped the Talbott Recovery Campus establish a national reputation as the treatment center of choice for addicted healthcare professionals.

Talbott Recovery Objectives

Work for public recognition of alcoholism and chemical dependency as diseases

Advance the knowledge of the treatment of addiction and co-occurring psychiatric disorders

Promote education in the medical community about the most effective approaches

Our Treatment Philosophy

Alcoholism and chemical dependency are chronic, relapsing, fatal diseases that not only affect the life of the alcoholic but also the lives of family, friends and colleagues. When Talbott Recovery opened its doors in the 1980s, we knew that the best way to serve our patients was to be the best at our specialty, to listen carefully to patients, to study our results and to invite family members into the treatment process.

Now, several decades later, those beliefs are still at the core of what we do. Talbott Recovery continues to stay the course by regularly examining the results of our programs and searching for methods to achieve the best possible outcomes, ensuring we continue to provide meaningful and effective treatment. We are proud of the care we have provided to the individuals who have entrusted their lives to us at the Talbott Recovery, and we would be honored to serve you.
