Positive Recovery

The medical disease model of treatment removes disease, but does not build the rich, full lifestyle that makes abstinence sustainable. When we bring the scientifically proven tools of positive psychology into addiction treatment, we help recovering addicts establish the skills to pursue happier, more meaningful lives so that addiction is less tempting and relapse is less likely.
