New studies done by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse revealed some unsettling facts about current addiction treatment practices. Researchers found that most treatment facilities rely on old, outdated philosophies and approaches and neglect to implement evidenced-based therapies that have been shown work better. It also found that the staff at many of the treatment facilities lacked the education and credentials needed to properly treat clients, especially those with a dual diagnosis.

So what types of treatments are effective in helping addicts and alcoholics achieve long-term sobriety? The same treatments offered by Recovery Associates. Since it opened in 2007, Recovery Associates has continuously evolved its program to reflect advances in the treatment field. They employ a board-certified medical and multi-disciplinary team of Master’s degree level therapists who specialize in a wide range of therapies and recovery services. There are onsite psychiatric services provided by a Board Certified addictions psychiatrist and nurse practitioner, which is exactly the type of care that the study found many other treatment centers lacked. This extended care program helps clients stay sober over a period of months—not days.
