Treatment Philosophy and Goals

Realization Center’s treatment philosophy is based upon the belief that addiction affects the whole person…physically, emotionally and spiritually. Therefore, successful treatment must adopt a “holistic” view of each client and address these vital areas in a total therapeutic program.

Accordingly, the primary goal of treatment at Realization Center is designed to treat the client’s primary diagnoses, its presenting symptoms, and to develop appropriate and productive behaviors that can be incorporated into a daily program of healthy living.

Realization Center does not standardize its approach to treatment by placing all clients in the same generic treatment track. Instead, our staff of clinical and medical professionals will work with you to develop a plan or specific treatment to meet your unique and individual needs.

Realization Center incorporates abstinence as an important foundation of the total therapeutic program. While many patients who enter treatment are still actively using substances, a primary requirement for continued participation in our treatment program is abstinence.


A 12 Step philosophy is an integral part of the clinical program while group therapy, individual counseling, psycho-education and family involvement constitute the psychodynamic core of our treatment approach. The goal of treatment at Realization Center is freedom from addictions and the ability to lead a fulfilling peaceful life.

At Realization Center you can expect a multi-disciplinary team of professionals including, credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselors, Certified Clinical Social Workers and Psychiatrists, assure quality care in a safe, supportive environment.
