About Promises Treatment Centers

about promises treatment centersPromises has been a mental health and drug rehabilitation center of choice for over 30 years.

Promises treatment centers are Joint Commission accredited and specialize in treating a wide variety of addictions. These include alcoholism, cocaine addiction, prescription drug abuse and marijuana abuse, and mental health disorders.

We are proud that in surveying our Promises clients, more than 98% say they would recommend us to a friend or family member. We believe this is the greatest testament to the compassionate care we offer at Promises recovery centers.

drug rehab treatment can only truly treat an individual if it takes the time to properly assess the client for underlying co-occurring disorders such as depression, trauma (PTSD), grief or loss issues, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and sleep disorders. These are just a few of the underlying issues that can make a person vulnerable to relapse. By properly assessing and addressing these issues, our clients can understand their triggers and create a bridge to an extraordinary life.

Promises Treatment Centers uses evidence-based treatment modalities, including medically monitored detox, individual therapy, psycho-educational groups, stress management strategies, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), equine-assisted therapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and somatic therapy. We also offer neurofeedback tool for addiction at some of our centers, which we have found to be one of the most effective tools in preventing relapse.
