Comprehensive care for sustained recovery.

About Us

The Root Center focuses on behavioral health treatment and offers a variety of addiction and mental health services.

Our Approach to Care

Making a profound change to one’s behavioral health requires addressing the root of the issue and offering treatment through a multifaceted, trauma-informed lens. Root Center for Advanced Recovery goes beyond what’s on the surface, relying on proven and scientifically vetted research to address issues underlying substance use and mental health disorders and improve treatment outcomes. We hold an unyielding dedication to clinical innovation and best-practice standards, and our diverse team of experts systematically review empirical data and literature to enhance treatment offerings and ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients.

At Root Center, we recognize that the road to wellness is rarely the same for any two people. Each person’s path is wholly unique, but the one thing that is consistent for all who find success is the presence of a partner to guide them.

Ready to see life differently and embrace new perspectives? We believe that progress is the destination, and the Root Center pledges to share our strength to keep you moving forward.
