Counselors are committed to addressing the underlying causes of addiction and create treatment plans that identify individual needs, choices and concerns. The Discovery House’s client to counselor ratio of 3:1 allows its counselors to deliver the highest level of care while maintaining the dignity and respect that every individual deserves. The Discovery House offers traditional therapies, as well as an array of expressive arts and experiential activities such as music therapy, yoga, psychodrama and mindfulness groups that help individuals address and work through their core issues.
"Your facility is just amazing, it gives people a safe place to be, where they can heal emotionally & physically, it is a model rehabilitation facility that others should strive to copy. I will forever be in debt to all of you for what you did for my family!!! Keep up the good work."Tom
"I thank God each day for all of you and this place. For those who doubt my ability to stay sober after only 30 days, I only hope that they continue to doubt, as I only find strength in that. Please do not doubt your ability to heal others, as your work here is impeccable. God has graced you all with a great gift to heal. I only hope that someday I can intern and help others as much."Bryce
