What Is Positive Recovery?
Empathy and compassion drive our mission. Positive Recovery uses strengths as a pathway to help others flourish in recovery, at work, and at home. This is our core purpose, our “why.” We creatively apply science in order to improve outcomes. Positive Recovery is not wishful thinking, it is not a magic pill, and it is not self-help. Positive Recovery is an evidence-based addiction curriculum that links the best of the old with the new, integrating existing effective approaches to treatment with interventions that enhance well-being by cultivating its components: positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, and achievement.
Step Into a New Life of Recovery
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.
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.
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.
Early recovery is often a vulnerable and challenging time, especially for those who lack support at home. 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. Aftercare provides essential group support and accountability to prevent clients from falling back into old, destructive habits.
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.

Message from our founder
With over 30 years’ 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. 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. In addition to our comprehensive substance abuse curriculum, we also include financial management counseling and advancing real life skills to truly help our clients thrive in recovery and lead better lives… Positive Recovery Centers creates positive change for our clients, their families and our community.
We do recover
The journey to recovery is not an easy and a straightforward process, as we would all like it to be. However, we do have ample success stories of recovery to share with you. At the Positive Recovery Centers, we have several individuals who have overcome their addictions and exhibited heroic efforts in their journey. We like to celebrate these heroes by bringing their inspiring stories to the spotlight and create hope in the community.

I caution that we take a long, hard look at the permissive tidal wave in favor of marijuana legalization. As for condoning recreational use, we need to be careful before we unlock that door. Because, in a tidal wave, once you open a door, it may not be so [...]
