Clinical Options Toward Recovery (CORE)

Read the CORE Program’s 2020-2021 Annual Report

Outpatient Integrated Addictions or Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment serving adolescents, adults and families who are affected by substance use or co-occurring substance and mental health disorders.

Treatment Philosophy

The Clinical Options Toward Recovery (CORE) Program’s treatment approach to addictions is holistic in nature, and based on the bio-psychosocial perspective that views substance dependency, co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders, and co-dependency as disease processes. We recognize that overcoming addiction is not a question of moral fiber or innate will power, but rather reflects a more complex developmental process of education, insight, behavioral change, and more importantly, a commitment to a new way of living. Treatment incorporates a strong emphasis on supportive individual and family psychotherapy. In addition, psycho-education coupled with an equally focused commitment to a 12 Step Philosophy offers individuals a structured environment that is designed to empower them to regain control of their lives. The CORE Program is firmly committed to helping those who suffer from addiction, co-dependency, and co-occurring disorders to achieve stability and abstinence, and to eventually rebuild healthy and fulfilling lives.

CORE is staffed by highly experienced professionals, including Certified Addictions Counselors, Licensed Master Level Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors, and Psychiatrists.
