Chemical dependency services

Chemical dependency services provides a flexible treatment system to restore the mind, body, and spirit. For many, entering treatment for chemical dependency can be an overwhelming experience. When medical detoxification is the first step of treatment, the support of trained and experienced staff in a hospital setting makes this step easier to take.

The program goal is to meet the needs of the individual and family confronted with the chronic and progressive disease of chemical dependency. The patient and their family members are involved in the treatment process. Program staff strive to provide the most effective and least costly method of treatment for each patient and their family.
