Our Approach

Recovering Champions understands that no two people develop addictive behaviors the same way. That’s why we tailor our treatment plans to fit the unique physiological, psychological, and spiritual makeup of each client.

We also know firsthand how isolating and intimidating addiction can feel as our clients navigate towards recovery. Our structured, supportive, and caring community keeps clients busy, active, and engaged while they move through our customized programs. From individual and group counseling to activities like meditation and yoga, clients learn from our expert staff and each other as they move towards long-term sobriety.

Our Philosophy

Throughout treatment, Recovering Champions teaches and reinforces the life-changing principles and practices of the 12 Steps to Recovery

Whether clients reach Recovering Champions on their own or via an introduction by a medical professional, a family member, or a loved one, they all receive personalized, high-quality, comprehensive therapeutic treatment in an atmosphere built on friendship, loyalty, and compassion.
