All efforts are guided by and in adherence to the recommendations distributed by the CDC.

Please note that for the safety of our patients, their families, and our staff, there are certain restrictions in place regarding on-site visitation at Azure Acres Recovery Center.

  • These restrictions have been implemented in compliance with updated corporate and state regulations to further reduce the risks associated with COVID-19.

  • Alternate methods of communication for other services may be offered when deemed clinically appropriate.

For specific information regarding these changes and limitations, please contact us directly.

CDC updates are consistently monitored to ensure that all guidance followed is based on the latest information released.

  • All staff receives ongoing infection prevention and control training.
  • Thorough disinfection and hygiene guidance is provided.
  • Patient care supplies such as masks and hand sanitizer are monitored and utilized.

  • CDC informational posters are on display to provide important reminders on proper infection prevention procedures.

The safety of our patients, their families, and our employees is our top priority, and we will remain steadfast in our efforts to reduce any risk associated with COVID-19.

With our more than 60 years of history and a focus on lifelong care, it is no surprise that Azure Acres has a vibrant alumni community.

When you enter treatment at Azure, you join a community of people committed to living lives free from the influence of substances. In fact, our active alumni community, now more than 20,000 strong, is a critical part of what makes Azure unique.

We recognize that sobriety is a lifelong pursuit and we are committed to continuing to serve our residents even after they have completed initial treatment with us. We believe that the path to recovery and freedom from substances must be walked alongside others. As such, we are committed to building a strong alumni community. After a resident completes our program, we contact him or her one week, 30 days, 90 days, and then each year afterwards to check in on him or her and receive updates about his or her progress. In addition, we also offer regular alumni events organized by our dedicated, full-time alumni services coordinator and are continually expanding our community outreach and alumni offerings.

The second Friday of every month, we host an alumni panel where alumni speak with residents about treatment and life after treatment. In addition, we also host an alumni dinner every second Sunday of the month where alumni can gather, reconnect with each other, and support each other in their recovery journeys. For those who would like more regular involvement with other alumni, we also hold an aftercare meeting every Thursday night.

In addition to our monthly events, we also hold an annual alumni picnic that is usually attended by a few hundred Azure alumni. These picnics provide a chance for alumni and their families to come together, enjoy each other’s company, and celebrate. Alumni picnics are often a highlight of the year for many of those who intend on coming.

At Azure, we believe in two fundamental truths: first, that recovery from substance abuse is possible, and second, that recovery is a lifelong journey that must be undertaken alongside others. While residential treatment is a critical first step towards a life free from substance abuse, at Azure we are dedicated to walking alongside you and bringing you into a community of like-minded individuals who can support you as you enter your new life of sobriety.

If you are interested in attending any alumni events, please contact Lynn Iovino at

An assessment is an important first step toward treatment of and recovery from addiction.

At Azure Acres, client care and well being comes first and foremost always. The entire staff has incredible compassion for all who come in for help and I instantly felt at home there — something I have never felt in other recovery centers.
