What is Your Underlying Issue?

Most treatment centers fail in their approach to alcohol abuse recovery because they treat addiction as if it is the problem, instead of looking for the deeper underlying issues. Their solution is a one-size-fits-all "group" approach, where you are placed with strangers in group meetings, then told that you have a disease that you are powerless over, and the best you can hope to do is manage it with a lifelong commit to 12 Step meetings and daily calls to your sponsor. Anything short of that and they say you will relapse. This archaic model is out of date and is used by almost all 12 Step based rehab centers in the nation.

Some of the most common underlying issues that cause people to use drugs and alcohol are low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, loss of loved ones, trauma, molestation, headaches, insomnia, physical pain, chemical imbalance, ADD, lack of purpose, and family turmoil.  Once you identify and heal the underlying issue that's driving your dependency on drugs and alcohol, you will have reached a major milestone, and be that much closer to your permanent sobriety.

While we offer standard 12 step recovery programs that is not always the best route for everyone.  At Above It All treatment facilities, we tailor a person plan that is suited to you and your needs.  Our team of professionals will follow you throughout your recovery and make adjustments to your program based on your needs.  We are here to assist you in making a lasting recovery that will be relapse free.
