  • excellent outcomes; and
  • high customer satisfaction.

Our Addiction Center of Excellence is available to you and your family where and when you need it. We provide many levels of care, including programs that provide support in your home, to meet your needs.

Excellence Matters: Addiction Innovation and Recovery

We know the numbers. The estimated annual cost of health care, lost productivity and crime due to addiction is $365 billion.

Fewer than one-third of those who do get treatment receive care that is even minimally adequate.
