What Makes AToN Center Unique
AToN Center’s program philosophy includes a unique and innovative approach regarding the process of reaching and sustaining substance abuse recovery through our private and individualized addiction treatment programming. At AToN we believe that offering an integrated treatment model, which allows us the opportunity to provide a variety of best practice recovery tools and methods, is imperative. AToN Center recognizes that a single modality doesn’t successfully meet the needs of every individual that is seeking recovery, and therefore we must offer a multitude of methods in order to capture the needs of each client. These methods include, but are not limited to 12 Step rehab programs, holistic treatment services and non 12 step rehab programs like SMART Recovery®.
