About Us

The Recovery Village is a comprehensive substance abuse and eating disorder treatment facility, offering a full continuum of care from a patients’ arrival. In addition to medical detox and acute medical stabilization, we offer nutrition monitoring and medical intervention, inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, sober housing accommodations and aftercare.

Patients come to The Recovery Village desperate for help, whether it is a substance abuse problem, or a co-occurring disorder. Issues can range from abuse combined with disordered eating or a mental health issue, such as anxiety and depression. Addiction to drugs or alcohol and eating disorders share the ability to cause mental health issues to develop, and when left untreated, they can begin to consume an individual’s life. More often than not, people seek help with these conditions when they have already begun to cause harm in various aspects of their life. Performance either at school or work is suffering, close relationships become strained by irritability and isolation, and the things which were once important to a person begin to fade. The goal of the alcohol/drug rehab center and eating disorder treatment is to provide patients with the tools and healthy coping skills needed for long-term recovery, which allow them an opportunity to gain a rewarding and effective bearing on life again. Each patient entering our center works closely with a multidisciplinary team that includes a primary therapist, psychiatrist and, for patients with an eating disorder, a registered dietitian. This ensures a quality level of care for all areas of an individual’s life which have been affected.

The Recovery Village is committed to helping patients in our substance abuse and eating disorder treatment center make recovery a reality. How we help individuals achieve this goal is what makes The Recovery Village rise above other addiction treatment centers. As a comprehensive substance abuse and eating disorder treatment facility, we provide all levels of care in one location to ensure fluid and effective, transitional care.
