Meet The Ridge Staff
With over 25 years of experience treating patients with addictions, the staff understands how difficult it is to get those with addictions to agree to treatment and offers in-home intervention assistance to encourage those with addictions to accept treatment voluntarily. If necessary, detoxification can be completed prior to beginning treatment. After a professional assessment, the staff at The Ridge determines why drug and alcohol addiction is a destructive element in the patients’ lives, whether it is due to psychological factors, health problems, family or spiritual needs. Multiple components are addressed to determine the most effective treatment and the appropriate level of care to resolve substance abuse issues. Additionally, the curriculum focuses on the development of coping skills and strategies to handle obstacles and barriers to recovery.
