Our highly trained and knowledgeable multidisciplinary team includes medical doctors, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, psychologists, therapists, treatment assistants, and a doctor of acupuncture. Patients meet with a clinician within the first 24 hours of admission. Therapists are all either working towards licensure or already licensed by the state, including licensed chemical dependency professionals (LCDPs), licensed mental health counselors (LMHCs), and masters-level licensed clinical social workers. All of our staff are trained and able to deliver addiction treatment. Some of their specialties include trauma-informed therapy, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and AcuDetox.
