Are you concerned that you or a loved one has, or may have, a problem with alcohol or other drugs?
Starting Now offers a variety of services to help you answer your questions about substance abuse and addiction, and to help you, or someone you love, manage an addictive illness.
Treatment Philosophy Based on the 12 Steps
Our treatment philosophy at Starting Now is based on the 12-step approach of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous combined with:
cognitive behavioral therapy
Our approach is designed to help you establish abstinence from alcohol and other drugs and to improve the quality of your life and your relationships while building the skills you need to build and maintain a strong recovery.
Helping You Build a Life of Sobriety and Recovery
We provide an atmosphere of respect, empathy and hope for women and men whose lives have been adversely affected by abuse, mental illness and addiction. At Starting Now you'll find the support you need to learn and practice the skills that will lead to a healthier life.
