Our Treatment Approach

Azure Acres Treatment Center has helped individuals struggling with addiction build a strong foundation for long-term recovery since 1957. Azure Acres provides high-quality alcohol and drug abuse treatment for adults near Santa Rosa, California.

Azure Acres Treatment Philosophy

Our approach to addiction treatment can be described as a warm, social model. When you’re at Azure Acres, you are part of a group of people that have a mutual goal — to get clean and sober.

From the moment you arrive, staff and residents will extend a warm welcome. Every new resident is assigned a “buddy” who will show you around, answer questions and be a source of support as you adjust to life at Azure Acres.

In a welcoming home full of warmth and character, you will be encouraged to engage in the treatment process and we will provide opportunities to practice your new skills with others in recovery.

A Client-Centered Team Approach

In all of our lectures, groups and meetings, you will notice our down-to-earth style and client-centered approach. Wherever you are in the cycle of addiction and whatever your state of mind, we will gladly meet you there and show you the next step toward recovery.

Our dedicated staff works closely as a team to ensure that your treatment plan meets your unique needs. We meet every morning to discuss client needs and progress and make any necessary changes to your treatment plan.

An open door policy lets you know that when you need us, we’ll be there. Our counselors are easily accessible and thoroughly committed to your recovery, and you will get to know each of us during your stay.

At Azure Acres, you’ll work with addiction professionals you can relate to because we have been where you are now. We know the despair and shame addiction brings and we know the countless joys of a drug-free life. Because of our professional and personal experience, we do more than read the Big Book and attend meetings — we show you how a life in 12-Step recovery looks and feels.
