Professional Treatment Services (PTS) recognizes that chemical and behavioral addictions are diagnosable and treatable primary illnesses that negatively impact both the individual directly experiencing the addiction as well as close family members and friends. Additionally, we understand that addiction diminishes an individual’s biological, psychological, social and spiritual health thereby depleting their overall quality of life.

Our holistic approach to addictions treatment emphasizes the restoration of health in each of those major life spheres through the delivery of research based therapeutic interventions. We fundamentally believe that through the competent and passionate delivery of education our clients are able to develop new psychological insights empowering them to modify or eliminate formerly pathological behavioral responses. The Serenity Model of Recovery and 12-Step Programming are cornerstones of our treatment philosophy. Clients completing our treatment program are equipped with the essential insight and skill base to sustain their long-term recovery.
