Addiction Counselor 

About the Organization Concerted Care Group offers the most effective treatment for addiction available, and we do not disrupt the process by sending the patient from one facility or approach to another; we do it all under one roof, with a 'concerted' approach, as our name, Concerted Care Group, states.



What is effective in opiate drug addiction and other addiction treatment is not just temporarily interrupting chemical dependency, but permanently altering the total life and lifestyle that leads to addiction.



We treat the whole person, not just the chemical dependency of addiction.
