A Personal Approach.

Our company has been working with clients to help them from the devastation of addiction and has over 20 years of first-hand experience counseling hundreds of individuals. We believe recovery is a way of life and touches all aspects of our life.

While residential treatment programs expose clients to the fundamentals of sobriety, they don’t teach them the life skills necessary for transitioning back into daily life. Our holistic approach is proven to provide lasting results that help our clients get their lives back.

Lorilei Safran, LMFT

Supervising Clinical Director

I have worked in the field of addiction for over 25 years and have observed that while residential treatment programs expose the clients to the fundamentals of sobriety, they don’t teach them the life skills necessary for transitioning back into the clients’ daily lives.

My career has afforded me the opportunity to work with a variety of addictions and an extremely diverse clientele.  My experience has taught me that each client and every addiction is distinct and should be treated accordingly.
