Substance abuse

Alcohol and Drug Abuse

As a primary substance abuse treatment program, all clients admitting in our program have an abuse or dependency issue with alcohol and/ or drugs both prescription and recreational. Most of our clients use substances as a way to self-medicate or as a coping skill.


Co-Occurring Disorders

Addiction rarely occurs in isolation. Many individuals struggling with substance abuse also suffer from a co-occurring, dual-diagnosis, or underlying mental health condition. At Avery Lane, we address all underlying conditions and concerns related to substance abuse.


PTSD and Trauma

The correlation between trauma and substance addiction in women is being increasingly recognized. The large majority of women addicted to alcohol or drugs report some sort of significant violent traumatic incident in their past, usually in the form of physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional or verbal abuse.


Grief and Loss

Grief can be triggered by many events in life. People often associate grief with the death of a loved one, but grief can occur whenever something important is lost. Divorce, the loss of a job, or having to give up a life-long dream can all affect us dramatically. Even smaller events can trigger less intense feelings of grief.



Avery Lane’s WHOLE BEING RECOVERY MODEL combines the most effective science and holistic-based treatment modalities to deliver higher than national success outcomes that support you with new skills and behaviors to create and sustain a healthy, empowered life.
