Courage to Change Professional Staff
We are really impressed with the staff you've assembled here.
-- Inspector for the State Certifying Agency
The level of care at our facility exceeds state standards of staff-to-patient ratio, permitting us to give individual and personal attention to patients. Staff counselors have achieved high levels of state "Certified Addiction Counselor" (CAC), cognitive behavior, and pharmacology training and experience. In-service and cross training takes place throughout the year to keep the staff current on the latest therapies and education.
More than half of the staff members have been through alcohol and addiction recovery programs. Their integrity, dedication, and eagerness to work with others trapped in addiction behaviors are heartfelt. The Courage to Change program is non-judgmental, egalitarian, and supportive - showing respect for all who share our path of healing from addictive behaviors.
