Individualized Recovery

We recognize substance use treatment is more than a diagnosis — we treat people. Each client comes to Open Arms with unique needs, backgrounds and belief systems. Open Arms tailors recovery programs designed to support long-term recovery.

Our approach is multidimensional and holistic – focusing on the physical, emotional, spiritual,family and mental health needs of each individual.
Individuals will meet weekly with their counselors to focus issues unique to their recovery. Group counseling is offered one or two times per week as well as an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
In addition to individualized therapy, we offer a number of groups that aid in the healing process: Pregnant Substance User Groups, Women with Children, Overdose Survivor Groups, Buprenorphine Groups, and Veteran Recovery Groups.
Our recovery coaches ensure clients have healthy living environments, a solid support system and work to equip each client with coping skills necessary to remain sobriety and live life to the fullest.
