The staff is absolutely amazing and they put their heart and soul into their clients! Every single person I have met is upbeat and very positive about recovery. It is hard to find a reliable and credible recovery center who does not just see a price tag, but a hopeful person looking for someone to believe in them. The management is very hands on and involved and you can rest assured you will have constant support at all hours of the day. From therapy to engaging in recovery communities within the area, Northstar Transitions really helps you make the transition back into a healthy, sober lifestyle.

In full disclosure I am the Executive Director for this facility. That being said, I truly beleive that Northstar is one of the preeminent substance abuse treatment centers in the United States. Staff make a treatment center and we have some of the most competent, caring and passionate employees of any treatment center I have ever visited. Our clinical and medical staff are top notch. Our Boulder location cannot be beat. I am proud to come to work every day and get to be a part of helping so many individuals overcome their substance abuse issues and begin to excel in their lives.

Situated in Boulder, Colorado, Northstar Transitions has treatment options for those who are seeking help for drug and alcohol addiction.

Addiction is a progressive disease of the mind that will continue to get worse with time if it goes untreated. It will continue to worsen without the help of a recovery program. It’s important that those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol seek the help of Northstar Transitions in order to regain the life that has become lost to addiction.

Through a thorough patient evaluation, addicts who attend treatment at Northstar Transitions can get a personalized treatment plan made. The assessment is intended to depict the severity of the addiction as well as to learn more about the individual themselves. This way, a comprehensive treatment program can be put in place in order to reap the desired result; that being long-lasting abstinence from drugs and alcohol.

Throughout the patient’s time in treatment at Northstar Transitions, the addict will learn new vital coping mechanisms and trigger management skills. These will help the addict adapt to a new life that is free of substance abuse when they reenter society. Since many addicts relapse, it is inherently important that they avoid certain settings or social circles that will pressure them to use.

At Northstar Transitions, we believe that all addicts have the courage within to overcome their drug and alcohol addiction. Through the constant support of counselors and professional advisors working with addict’s daily, recovery is possible. Despite how long one has been an addict for, recovery is still absolutely attainable. Treatment is not a one-size-fits-all approach and at Northstar Transitions, treating each patient with individuality is of utmost importance.

Breaking the vicious cycle of addiction is tough, but with professional counselors and effective treatment options in place, sobriety is closer than it seems. Get in touch with Northstar Transitions today at northstartransitions.Com to learn more about how recovery can help pave a new life path.
