Our programs incorporate evidence-based clinical services provided by licensed and trained treatment professionals with a focus on recovery. We work with a diverse group of individuals, from pregnant and parenting women to men exiting incarceration. All of our facilities are licensed and accredited by the Council on Accreditation. While the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports the national average of relapse ranges from 40 to 60% depending on the substance of choice, Volunteers of America’s programs help clients achieve and maintain sobriety at rates higher than the national averages.
