Our Program

Centered Recovery is a mindfulness-based non-12 step drug abuse treatment and education program offering intensive outpatient (IOP) and partial hospitalization (PHP) services to the metro Atlanta area. Our program combines traditional mental health therapies through one-on-one counseling with holistic therapies and a strong primary educational component specifically designed to help our clients realize their own innate health to overcome even the toughest addictions.

For clients who have attempted sobriety in the past and were unsuccessful, our program utilizes a completely fresh approach free of traditional punitive methods and labeling. We believe that support, understanding and compassion are key to helping clients find a permanent, lasting solution that comes from within.

Years of experience in the field of recovery has shown that most addictions are the result of an innocent attempt to escape or eliminate some type of emotional suffering, whether it is boredom, anxiety, pain, or depression. Helping our clients see the root cause of their pain allows them to discover the key to moving beyond it. The educational component integrates common sense with cutting edge neuroscience to illuminate how to find resilience even among chaos, both from the past and in the future.

Centered Recovery understands that each story is unique, and that a cookie cutter approach will only work on those who fit the mold. We developed our program knowing that in behavioral health recovery, there is no one size-fits-all, so our clients enjoy individually tailored therapy that fits their needs and are able to work through their unique situations by adapting group lessons.

We have found that people struggling with addictions are almost never struggling alone: families, spouses, parents, and children of our clients often express a need for compassionate help as well, which is something that is often overlooked. Without addressing or acknowledging the needs of everyone affected, the healing process can easily be delayed or hindered. Centered Recovery provides aftercare services to those clients who wish to continue one-on-one, family, or group therapy sessions with our aftercare facilitators. However, our program is designed to provide our clients with the tools that make their sobriety completely portable–without the need to depend upon sponsors, meetings, or additional therapy to live a healthy, sober life. Of course it is not a magic pill, but the newfound ongoing present awareness can create a foundation for many lasting positive changes in life.
