Our Philosophy

At the Ridge, we believe that every individual is unique and that treatment plans should be designed to address their personal needs on the path to recovery.

We treat the entire person, holistically, addressing physical, emotional, and mental health during their stay. We do not subscribe to any singular treatment philosophy or method of treatment; rather we consider every proven tool and tactic at our disposal with the goal of helping each person to achieve sobriety and sustain recovery.

Our robust offerings promote overall health and wellness and address both physical and mental health.
