What Is Positive Recovery?
If you’re struggling with addiction or substance use, you’ve come to exactly the right place. Positive Recovery is the world’s first drug and alcohol treatment program that combines positive psychology with effective evidence-based approaches. The treatment plans we offer combine time-tested, tried and true treatment approaches with innovative interventions that enhance well-being by cultivating its components: positive emotions, engagement, relationships, deeper meaning, and achievement. We embrace those fighting addiction and relapse to help create a sober, meaningful life worth living.
A Comprehensive Continuum of Care
We offer a comprehensive continuum of care ranging from Medical Detox to Residential Treatment to Aftercare. The sections that follow provide details about each stage of treatment.
Detox and withdrawal can be an intimidating process, but our primary goal is to ensure your safety and comfort at all times. By collaborating with our doctor and yours, family members, and other support partners, we provide medically-supervised detox and counseling that is focused on your individual needs. When you’re ready, we will provide personalized recommendations for the next level of care and oversee the transition. LEARN MORE
Our residential rehab program is offered in a comfortable, community setting and is individually tailored to prevent relapse and foster overall health and well-being in recovery. Personalized recovery plans address the medical, psychiatric, and social needs of each client and are guided by the framework of our innovative Positive Recovery Curriculum. In conjunction with education and evidence-based treatment methods, family therapy also initiates healing and growth among loved ones throughout the recovery process. Residential rehab is an important step in treatment, as it helps to establish a solid foundation for long-term sobriety. LEARN MORE
Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides medical and psychiatric treatment in a supportive outpatient environment. It is especially helpful for those who have an advanced risk for relapse after residential treatment. PHP is focused on life skills for sobriety, relapse prevention, and the development of a personal recovery plan. Our staff works closely with each client to develop strategies to prepare for and lessen threats to sobriety, which safeguards the transition from addiction to recovery. LEARN MORE
Our Aftercare services provide enhanced recovery support to help clients learn how to live a new life and flourish in recovery. We do not recover in isolation, but together, we can build intentional pathways to long-term sobriety and bolster new, positive habits. Our Aftercare services provide essential group support and accountability to prevent clients from falling back into old, destructive habits. LEARN MORE
Addiction is a family disease and it takes effort on everyone’s part to repair the damage and forge new, healthy relationships. At Positive Recovery Centers, we facilitate emotional healing among loved ones with family workshops that consist of group therapy and educational lectures. These workshops are an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of addiction and recovery and develop the tools needed to move forward after addiction. LEARN MORE

Message from our founder
“In my 30+ years of experience in the addiction treatment industry, I have seen that the people most in need of treatment are often the ones that have the fewest options. Proper addiction treatment and rehabilitation should be available to everyone. Positive Recovery Centers believes a healthy life, free of substance abuse, should be available to anyone who is willing to claim it. What if instead of saying “Goodbye” to our past addiction, we said “Hello” to our new and healthy lifestyle? When we shift our narrative from focusing on addiction to embracing a clean and sober lifestyle, we give ourselves permission to grow. Everyone deserves an opportunity to be supported in their recovery. Our goal is to offer a program that truly makes a difference – not just in the here and now – but in the future. That is what Positive Recovery is all about.” – George Joseph, CEO
