Our Approach

Here at Awakenings we believe that addiction is a medical condition that causes health, emotional, and social consequences. Our program is patient centered, which requires patient involvement in there education and achievement of recovery goals. Our education focuses on a combination of three different learning styles: visual, hands-on, and active listening.

Treatment hours are variable depending on the individual's needs. This allows the patient to be in control of there treatment schedule. Patients are able to attend day, evening, or a combination of both groups to avoid distraction from other life responsibilities.

Our Story

Awakenings was established in May of 2004 when Melody Lorenzo recognized that there was no flexibility in the standard outpatient services. Services were focused more on agency expectations than patient centered care. With experience in inpatient, outpatient, and 12-step self help programs Ms. Lorenzo combined useful processes from each form of service to offer a more flexible patient centered program that allows the patients to be more in charge of their own recovery goals.

In 2017 Awakenings added mental health services to its program. The mental health services offered include individual sessions, a wide variety of specialized group services as well as tele-psychiatry (which offers medication management).

The goal behind offering both SUD and Mental Health services is to better coordinate patient care and address each persons needs individually.
