Mission Statement: The clinical program is founded upon the belief that substance use disorders are highly treatable, and that those persons suffering from its effects are entitled to the best treatment available at the level of least intrusion in their lives. This care should reaffirm the individual's self worth and inherent human dignity. Thus, the caregivers, the staff, must be caring, compassionate, and professionally competent.
