Outpatient Substance Abuse Services

Recovery is Possible!

The Center for Life Resources has always pursued the goal of assisting area residents in achieving the highest possible quality of life. Historically, the Center has provided services for those living with mental illness and/or intellectual and developmental disorders.

The escalating and ravaging trend of substance abuse and dependence has motivated the Center to develop specialized treatment programs to support existing clients as well as individuals who present with only a substance abuse or dependence disorder.

We believe that active participation in a well structured program, coupled with involvement in appropriate support groups, can significantly improve the prognosis for long-term recovery.

Our treatment staff is ready to help those seeking to improve their own health and wellness, live meaningful lives in their communities, and striving to achieve their full potential. We understand that recovery is a process. We believe that prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover.
