EVERYONE HAS CAPACITY TO CHANGE

"Our goal is to facilitate that change. We don’t want to stop with simply helping someone cope with their mental illness or addiction. We want to help them modify or completely erase the underlying faulty beliefs that are contributing to their struggles. If we stop solely with coping, it leaves open the possibility for the person to experience one wrong step or a change in stressors that upsets the equilibrium, the balance. The result may be the reemergence of the same day-to-day struggles. Each time it is likely to feel worse, as the individual is disappointed and discouraged that his or her previous efforts were ineffective.

Our treatment programs are different. We are attacking the infrastructure on which the conflict, psychological problem or mental illness is based. This is done in a secure, protected and safe environment with our highly trained and experienced team. In essence, we go deep-sea fishing for the faulty foundations of people’s struggles, most of which have been present all their lives. When you ask a person, “How long have you had this problem?” the most common answer is, 'forever'. People know in their hearts and minds what is there. They just may not know why or what to do about it.

Our approach can cause real and lasting change. It is dependent on the individuals, but anyone who is motivated and does the work can make major changes in their lives."
