About Us

Resurge Recovery’s outpatient programming offers several evidence-based options to meet individual needs, goals, and objectives. We offer a mixture of individual counseling, group counseling, medication assisted treatment and family groups/sessions and support.

Resurge Recovery staff are trained in evidence-based treatment approaches that have been proven to increase success for persons with substance use disorders.  Our staff is composed of medical professionals and licensed clinicians that have a deep understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of substance use disorder.

Resurge Recovery treats substance use disorder as a progressive, complex chronic disease that centers in the brain, and partners with you on the road to recovery.  In addition to medical treatment, Resurge Recovery staff assists clients in accessing community resources that support long term success including housing, medical care, education and more.  Because we believe in the unity of mind, body, and spirit, we also encourage and provide facilities for the practice of physical fitness and yoga. Clients that take an active role in their personal recovery goals and treatment plan are the most likely to be successful.  Resurge Recovery will provide the necessary skills and assist clients in building a strong support system that can lead to long term recovery.
