What Is Addiction?
At Shepherd Hill, addiction is treated as a chronic, progressive and potentially fatal disease. Our treatment team helps patients to recover in a dignified manner using four primary treatment goals:
  • Education
  • Self-diagnosis
  • Self-responsibility
  • Self-treatment
Successful achievement of these goals culminates in relapse prevention.
