resources

We are committed to the latest and most effective treatment options.

We have built and developed a process for resources and to learn more about addiction recovery. Whether you are a student learning about addiction recovery, a family member struggling to understand your loved one’s disease or a professional in the field. We want our commitment to addiction treatment to transcend the client’s we treat and to develop a sense of community even from outside the walls of Alta Centers.

Resources can span from understanding new science and education to different core competencies of addiction treatment and posts on what we know can be insightful for those looking for help.  We are here to treat addiction in person and for those that can’t yet find that help for themselves.  Alta Centers as a whole, wants you to have the strength and knowledge to benefit your recovery or your loved one’s recovery.

This page is our commitment to our friends in the field, our clients and those affected by addiction all over the world. To enhance understanding and educate others on the disease of chemical dependency and addiction.

From public policy, advocacy, science, patient rights, ethics, morals to just learning more about how Alta Centers runs and effectively combats addiction with treatment can be found in our resources. We believe firmly that education can help those afflicted by addiction and their loved ones to better understand, better combat, and better identify when they need to seek help for addiction issues.
