Addiction Treatments Available Through Our PHP Program

We help you pinpoint the root of addictive behaviors and find a path toward healing. Our thoughtful approach empowers you to create lasting change.

Your personalized care plan may include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) teaches you to change troublesome thoughts and behavior patterns.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) helps you accept your current circumstances and challenges so they don’t keep you stuck in addiction.
