A Treatment That Follows You Home

We understand the stress that comes with multiple relapses. You want to quit, but you can’t. You have experienced the full gamut of emotions from optimism to cynicism, thinking that no matter what treatment program you attempt—it will fail. Advances in the fields of addiction medicine and neuroscience enhance the methods used to effectively treat addictive disorders. ARCA has clinically applied these advances to offer the right combination of Inpatient Residential Programs & Outpatient Treatment Programs utilizing anti-craving medications and behavioral therapy producing significantly better outcomes than traditional methods.

Relapse and Your Hijacked Brain

Addictive disorders are a chronic illness that affects not only the person struggling with the disorder, but also loved ones, friends, families, other relationships, community members, career goals and children. Traditional treatment programs typically do not expose patients to cues and triggers. If you are or someone you know is seeking treatment for an addictive disorder, we understand your inner turmoil in choosing a treatment program. This is an important decision that will allow you to rebuild your career, your relationships and your life. Often the decision to seek help comes from pressures from an external factor such as a loved one, an employer or the law, if you have noticed changes in areas of your life causing issues due to alcohol or drugs, take our assessment to find if you need to seek help now.
