Description:

At Nava our philosophy focuses on preventing and treating addiction in a fashion that will provide long-term abstinence and decrease recidivism amongst addicts and alcoholics. We assist all of our clients in developing a workable and reasonable treatment plan, which will help each client to re-direct their path of life and secure abstinence from drugs and alcohol. We strongly believe that the clients enrolled in our treatment program have the ability to let go of past behaviors that have placed them in our hands, and they will be able to succeed by discovering themselves while under the guidance and care of our team.

We will provide every client with opportunity to achieve healthy stability and to learn all the necessary tools to reach their treatment goals.
