We take pride in being able to provide resources for our patients to learn more about addiction. Addiction may take over someone’s life, but we believe that learning and exploring can get our patients back on the right track. One of the ways individuals rebuild productive lives while dealing with addiction is through the process of careful and mentored learning. Addiction support services such as learning sessions teach the fundamentals of good mental health and strategies to defend against misuse of mood-altering substances.
Our Core Beliefs And Values
We believe that knowledge is one of the biggest factors to successful recovery. Additionally, strong family support for someone entering recovery is a strong driver of success. It is also equally as important to make sure that you are well informed when looking into treatment services. Having an understanding of how addiction works will help put things into perspective, and also give you a greater level of knowledge on the severity of the addiction. In order to do research and learn more, there are various avenues that can provide assistance and more information about drug and alcohol abuse.
Providence Healthcare takes pride in being one of the top drug and alcohol treatment providers in Washington, DC.
