Our Story

Ascend specializes in the treatment of substance abuse and substance use disorders, drug addiction, alcohol abuse and alcohol addiction, and treats an array of behavioral health problems ranging from ADHD to mood disorders such as depression and anxiety.

Our practice was started by a group of clinicians who were frustrated by the antiquated approaches used to treat individuals with substance use disorders. Our practice model reflects our comprehensive, evidence-based approach.

In any therapeutic relationship, the relationship between client and clinician is paramount.

The staff at Ascend fosters this relationship by approaching our clients with unconditional positive regard while using proven core therapies in the areas of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and wellness practices to arrest substance use and address the underlying psychological causes driving the addiction.

We also use the most advanced technologies in the behavioral sciences to better target areas of improvement.

Our tools include the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI), the Novoco Anger Scale and Provocation Inventory (NAS PI), and GeneSight genetic testing and medication analysis plus several other evidence-based screening and assessment tools that help our clinicians and clients formulate the treatment plan that will best meet each client's needs.
