Starting Now Outpatient Addiction Services

Intensive Outpatient & Outpatient Addiction Treatment Services

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

Our treatment philosophy at Starting Now is patient-centered, and evidence-based. We assist patients in locating community-based, peer recovery resources including Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, SMART Recovery (self-management and recovery training) combined with:

  • group and individual therapy
  • cognitive behavioral therapy
  • experiential activities.

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 maintain a strong recovery. We also help people access community-based peer recovery supports such as Turning Point.

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 addiction and mental illness. At Starting Now you'll find the support you need to learn and practice the skills that will lead to a healthier life.
