Our Commitment to Recovery & Family Bonding

The most important part of our job here is to ensure that we facilitate a comfortable recovery process that can be sustained in perpetuity. We provide services that encourage long term recovery, and the benefits of a substance-free lifestyle. Through our outpatient care and continuing care initiatives, we assist in helping those recovering from a substance use disorder, a mental health condition, or alcohol use disorder to stay on track to maintain their recovery after rehabilitation is complete.

Part of what helps to sustain long-term recovery is having a good support system, and this goes beyond just professional help into personal life. We recognize that many friendships, families, and relationships have been destroyed by the abuse of drugs and alcohol. In order to restore those personal relationships, we offer a number of group therapy and family therapy options that can help to repair issues of distrust.

Our History

From Our Founder

As someone who has worked in the industry for decades, I am proud to be involved with the important work that The Excel Center is doing. My purpose in life is helping others to find recovery; I love showing them that there is a light after the dark and it is possible to live a healthy, accountable, and manageable life.

I am an advocate for spiritual growth through the 12 Steps – one of our mantras is to “accept the things we cannot change, but find the courage to change the things we can”. Through our compassionate program and amazing team, we have helped hundreds of clients change the things they could, and live a life filled with hope, faith, and courage.

Meet Our Expert Team

The Excel Team is comprised of highly skilled licensed therapists, outstanding Medical Providers that are in the forefront of addiction treatment, and caring and compassionate support staff. Our treatment professionals are deeply committed with more than 75 years of combined experience in treating addiction and teaching the life-skills that break the addiction cycle. Our ancillary support staff allow our clients to experience alternative therapies including Yoga, Reiki, Art Therapy, and Meditation, which allow healing of the body, mind, and spirit and promote healthy living.

Leadership Team

Excel’s Leadership team helps create an environment and culture at Excel Treatment Center that has a staff retention rate measured in years, rather than in the months that you find at other leading providers for similar services locally and nationally. This has created a team of caring professionals who care about clients first, and go to any lengths to help above and beyond.

Clinical Team

With six Master’s level clinicians each with multiple additional nationally accredited licensures and certifications, the Clinical Team has developed a culture of safety, trust, understanding, and compassionate care that results in higher levels of client engagement, higher client satisfaction scores, and is evidenced by the fact that almost all the clients, if they ever need help again, request specifically to come back to Excel.

Things to remember

Important Resources

Can I Keep My Job and Go to Day Treatment?

Realizing that you might need treatment for your addiction is a huge step in the right direction. However, many fear their life will change when they take that first step, including potentially losing their job. This is a valid concern; however, at Excel Treatment Center, we want you to know that you have options.

How Can I Support a Loved One Struggling With Addition?

Addiction not only affects those struggling with the addiction but also affects the friends and family around them. It can be just as challenging to support them as it is to watch them in active addiction. Learning to create a loving, supportive space without enabling can be difficult, but it is crucial to develop this space to help your loved ones through their recovery.

The Importance of Family Participation During Treatment

Addiction is a disease that affects the whole family. Family members often feel the impact of addiction in a very real way, which can lead to feelings of anger, resentment, and frustration. While these emotions are natural, they can also be detrimental to one’s treatment if left unchecked.
