The Goodman Center has a strict policy to help people where they are regardless of their situation or beliefs. Unlike most traditional treatment centers who feel confrontation and oversight is the key, we believe the client should be motivated and engaged with kindness and compassion.
We offer medically assisted, non-narcotic therapy to reduce cravings. Our program boast a 93% success rate without the need for detox, or leave of work for most clients. Our program treats the issue of addiction like a medical disease utilizing a combination of counseling, medicine, and nutritional therapy.
We employ alternative approaches to dealing with chronic pain such as utilizing non-narcotic painkillers, pain cream and massage therapy. We also offer therapy sessions that help reduce psychosomatic pain, as well as reduce muscle tension through mindfulness and stress reduction counseling.
Addressing mental health as a combination of physiological and physical factors optimizes the client’s chance for placing the issue into permanent remission. Our treatment program combines medication, counseling, and nutritional therapy for optimal results.
