Addictions Counseling

Alarus believes that when addictions get a hold of someone the addiction is no longer a choice. Addiction is a disease and we treat it as such. We treat each person who comes to us with respect, while providing a safe place in which to heal.

Our treatment philosophy is based on the recognition that alcohol and drug addiction is a disease and that abstinence is the best way to manage the condition. We approach addiction treatment as a whole life change to help implement the components to bring about a healthy life.

Each person who turns to Alarus for help comes with a unique personal history and set of circumstances. Treatment is tailored to ensure the most effective approaches and best opportunity for recovery. The individual’s alcohol and drug treatment plans will be influenced by a number of factors including family history, addictive substance(s), gender, physical health, and many other variables.

Alarus Healthcare specializes in co-occurring disorders. It is very common for those who struggle with drug addiction to also have a co-occurring mental health condition such as depression, anxiety disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder. A mental health professional is part of each client’s care team to ensure that any co-occurring mental health issues are identified and treated along with addiction.

Alcohol and drug addiction treatment is delivered many different ways depending on the needs of the individual. Residential treatment may be necessary for some, while others may be able to complete substance abuse treatment on an outpatient basis, which is offered at our facility. For most, a combination of addiction treatment services provide the best chance at recovery. Alarus provides the full continuum of care to meet each individual’s treatment needs while providing continuity of care.

Opioid addiction is becoming more and more a problem and Alarus specializes in opioid addiction treatment. At the time of assessment our professionals will work out a plan best suited to give the client success. Many individuals with opioid addiction will be seen by Alarus’ medical Director Dr. Marsha Davis, who will work with Alarus to decide the best plan for him or her. If medications are necessary some may be prescribed suboxone or other medications, while others may be prescribed with Vivitrol injections, which can be injected by our Dr. Davis.


Our alcohol and drug addiction treatment services are delivered by an on-site team of professionals representing many disciplines. This multi-disciplinary team creates an individual substance abuse treatment plan based on clinical needs.
