About

About Us

Recovery Care Partner is your one-stop support system for recovery from alcoholism and addiction. While others assist through a single stage process, no other firm provides comprehensive counsel from pre-intervention through early recovery. Recovery Care Partner provides core services in intervention, treatment advocacy and planning, and post-treatment care.

Who We Treat

You are not alone
One in ten Americans suffer from a substance use disorder. This means nearly every family is touched by it. Thousands of other people are in the same distress as you. Dozens of people call us for help every day.

There is no shame
Alcoholism and addiction are diseases. They are not moral failings nor are they the result of failed parenting. They are diseases that result in intolerable behavior.

You don't have to live this way
Substance abuse is the third leading cause of death in this country, behind only heart disease and cancer. However, it is immensely more treatable. With help, one can live a life free of the remorse, drama, confusion, and bitterness that substance abuse causes. Change is not easy, but help is only a phone call away.

It only takes one first step
Call us. We can provide addiction education, listen to your struggle, and suggest a path for moving forward. It’s that simple. We are honored to help.

Are you suffering? Do you promise yourself you won’t drink, only to hate yourself for drinking again? Do you imagine you can’t function without those prescriptions? Are your friends addicts, pushers, or heavy drinkers? Call us. You may be one of the millions of Americans suffering from the disease of substance abuse. There is a different way to live. There is help.

Are you buckling under the weight of a loved one’s substance use? Do you worry for their safety and well-being? Do you live in fear of late night phone calls? Do you avoid being with them? Have you lost respect for them? Do you want to be able to love them freely again? Call us. Your loved one might be one of the millions of Americans suffering from a substance use disorder. Underneath the disease, they are still there. There is help.

Values

Addiction is a devastating disease. It corrodes family relationships, it terrifies onlookers, and it destroys self-respect. For treatment to be effective, there must be a platform of dignity and respect.

Three decades of experience have demonstrated time and time again that the most powerful tools for dealing with addiction are love and compassion, delivered with clarity, firmness, dignity and respect.

Only cancer and heart disease kill more people than addiction. Of these three diseases, addiction is the most treatable. But since addiction is a disease of the brain and one which manifests behaviorally, it takes a significant toll on sufferers and their families. We are sensitive to this and respect that. We respect you.

Commitment

Recovery Care Partner exists for one purpose: to help addicts establish sustainable recovery. We are unwaveringly committed to that goal.

In the normal course of our work, we calm heated family dynamics, we recommend ideal addiction treatment centers, and we have the hard conversations with you – but it is all for the purpose of the main objective, which is helping the addict to recover.

In special circumstances, we hire private detectives, coordinate with the judicial system, and work with broker relationships between health care providers – but it is still for that one objective.

The single focus is to help our clients live a life free of substance abuse. We do whatever it takes.
