Personalized treatment is determined by examining the history of each patient including genetics, hereditary, nature, and life experiences.


When seeking treatment, the first step towards recovery is detoxing addictive substances from the body. At The Grove Recovery Community, the detox stage uses a substitution tapering technique that has been developed over decades. Substitution tapering helps to alleviate severe withdrawal symptoms by slowly decreasing the amount of a substance taken over time by replacing it with a similar, more controllable medication. This substitution medication has a lower potential for addiction than the original substance. Medications, such as Suboxone, Naltrexone, and Buprenorphine, can be lifesaving in extreme situations.

During this tapering detox process, there is an emphasis on symptom guided treatment. This means that a patient’s symptoms are watched closely by medical professionals. In monitoring withdrawal symptoms, medical professionals can assess patient’s conditions and determine what treatment will be needed going forward. The aspects of detox at The Grove Recovery Community lessen uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and promote long term recovery by establishing abstinence early on in the treatment process. When used for maintaining sobriety, The Grove Recovery Community recommends their patients take daily doses of substitution medication for 12 months. Additionally, outpatient detox is offered.


The Grove Recovery Community is committed to educating patients and their families about the science of addiction and the steps needed to maintain long term recovery. This center’s curriculum features the basic neurobiology of addiction addressing how and why it develops, who is at risk, and what tools are needed to overcome it. By providing patients with all the necessary information for recovery, patients are given more responsibility over their treatment and future.
