Why Ascend Treatment Center Is Different


Today, we have more strategies and treatment options available than ever  before to help you overcome substance and alcohol abuse, addiction, and alcoholism and the psychological and psychiatric conditions that often co-exist with substance abuse and substance use disorders.

We draw on a comprehensive array of treatments backed by research and science, including:

  • Individual counseling on specific relapse triggers and barriers to sobriety
  • Training on cognitive-behavioral strategies to help you stay in recovery
  • Group therapy led by licensed counselors
  • Medication-assisted treatment (ex: Vivitrol and Suboxone) when suitable
  • Individualized outpatient treatment for drug abuse, substance disorders and alcohol abuse
  • Peer support groups when helpful, like Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous
  • Family therapy to help repair damaged relationships
  • Treatment of co-occurring disorders like depression, anxiety, anger, ADHD/ADD, bipolar and manic-depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and others

Truly individualized treatment.

Common sense tells us that what works for one client may not be a good fit for another, and we pride ourselves on tailoring each client's treatment plan to their individual needs and priorities.

Every treatment plan recommendation we make is based on extensive analysis of your life experience and medical history, prior treatment experience, and what you've already learned does -- and doesn't -- work for you.

We pair that insight with a tailored selection of evidence-based treatment strategies matched to your specific requirements.

For some, that might mean medication-assisted treatment and group therapy, with one-on-one therapy to address individual barriers.

For others, it might mean individual counseling to teach cognitive-behavioral strategies plus participation in a 12-step program.

Every client is unique -- and so is every treatment plan.

Always judgment-free.

You'll find that Ascend is a compassionate, judgment-free environment that always sees you as a unique individual with value, worthy of respect.

Research has shown that addiction, substance abuse disorders, and mental health challenges are related to specific differences in the physiology and neurochemistry of the brain -- not a lack of willpower or a lack of willingness to change.

The key to sobriety is

  • Learning what individual factors place your own recovery at risk and contribute to any co-existing psychological or psychiatric conditions
  • Implementing strategies specifically designed to help you avoid or address these factors in your day-to-day life
  • Surrounding yourself with support systems that help you stay on top of any new challenges as they arise, before new difficulties emerge
