It is an ever-changing industry that constantly remains on the forefront of modern medicine, both on a physical and psychological level. At the same rate however, many of the most commonly used approaches also involve time-tested philosophies such as NA and AA.

While it is becoming more and more common for drug addicts & alcoholics to utilize the services of recovery homes, there still remains a need for traditional residential treatment for those who need the absolute highest level of structure.

Or how do they know whether or not that the online article they’re reading is really nothing more than just another sales pitch?
