Our approach draws on the ARISE® philosophy of strength-based support for persons in or seeking recovery from alcohol, substance abuse or other addiction, behavioral compulsions, mental health issues, eating disorders, process addiction, physical challenges, and many other co-occurring issues
We partner with the individual, family, colleagues and friends to empower them to take over after we are no longer needed. Our experienced Recovery Specialists work with a team of highly skilled clinicians and other specialists to ensure that you and your family receive the best possible service during these challenging and often painful times.
All our services are extremely confidential and our Recovery Specialists are very experienced in serving highly visible and powerful individuals in the spotlight, along with professionals in and out of the field.
When indicated, the service may be for the individual alone, but we strongly encourage involvement of family and colleagues, especially when the time comes for a carefully guided return to home and/or the workplace.
Our IRI Certified Recovery Specialists (similarly to life and business coaching and peer mentoring), work in a partnership with the client and family, guiding, supporting and mentoring the person in or seeking recovery and long-term health.
