Northbound Treatment Center helped saved my life. An awesome facility, Northbound helped provide me with the tools I needed to succeed in my recovery. The team is awesome, David Gates was a very helpful admissions counselor and got me involved in the right programs based on my needs. The program does a great job of reintegrating their clients back into the real world, something many treatment centers fail to do. Thank you, Northbound!

Northbound saved my life. After twenty-five years of doing drugs, they gave me the opportunity to start a new life. They provided a positive place to stay and grow.


I was given a safe place to deal with my trauma and my deep-rooted issues that I had pushed down and covered up with drugs and alcohol. My life was unmanageable to say the least, and Northbound pushed me and enabled me to be the woman I am today.

Absolutely love Northbound, I did 5 months inpatient, and I’m now 1 year and 3 months sober. They give you the tools and advice to stay sober. And they are all like another family!
