Our Pastoral Care staff integrates spirituality with the client’s clinical care plan helping each person come to know who they are through their relationship with their Higher Power.

We support clients in their recovery from substance abuse by listening and attending to their spiritual needs. We facilitate this by providing spiritual guidance individually and in groups. Our clients’ spiritual journey is augmented with retreats, choir, art groups, addiction recovery groups, and awareness, spirituality and bible study groups.

Religious services are provided for multiple faiths utilizing local Ministers, Imams and Rabbis in addition to our own pastoral care Priests and Staff.
