Addiction and Recovery Program

Who We Are

Our Addiction and Recovery Program consists of a diverse group of mental health professionals who are committed to using their training to bring healing and hope to those who suffer from addiction. We recognize that we each have been given our gifts from God to serve others. Our partnership with Anchor Her allows us to bring holistic care to those who are suffering. We believe that we are stronger together.  

What We Do

We believe in the power of collaboration! Our program is designed to make collaboration with our Addiction and Recovery partners and mental health professionals a routine part of our program. Because each individual is unique, our team will craft a program that we believe will meet the individual needs of those we serve. One method does not fit all; therefore, having a variety of options gives us a greater opportunity to help our clients succeed.

What's Different

Our team is ethnically diverse with different specializations. We are also from different parts of the Kansas City metro and we have professionals on both sides of the state line.    Therefore, we offer various therapeutic techniques to help people heal, from EMDR, CBT, Certified Peer Support Specialists, Pilates body movement, and Equine therapy. We see ourselves as a part of the whole. Alone, we are limited in our impact, but together in unity, we can transform our community.
