About Us

We believe that there is hope and healing for drug and alcohol addiction, and it starts with a safe and caring detox program.

Who We Are

We offer a home-like environment where clients can focus on their treatment without distractions. Clients are monitored around the clock to ensure their safety and comfort by our highly trained clinical staff that includes licensed counselors and therapists. Our medical team is supervised by Dr. Sanjai Thankachen, MD, a Board-Certified Psychiatrist and addiction specialist specializing in detox services. Dr. Thankachen also provides psychiatric assessments, identifying any underlying issues clients may be experiencing. Just as all clients are unique, we strive to design unique detox programs for each client.

Our Philosophy

We believe that drug and alcohol addiction is a disease of the brain that results in an individual seeking out and using substances even when there are significant negative consequences. We believe that addiction is caused by a complex and unique set of circumstances for each individual. We also believe that addiction is a progressive disease that will continue to worsen over time when undiagnosed and untreated.

At True Life Recovery drug rehab, we carefully consider each client’s individual needs and treat them holistically. It isn’t our goal to simply help them get clean and sober and then send them on their way. Instead, we strive to help clients complete the detox process and then assist them with transitioning to their next steps in addiction treatment.
