The good news is that there are many treatment and care options available for those struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. The not so good news is that many providers in today’s marketplace have lost connection with ethical practices and providing quality client care. As a clinician in the field, it is imperative that I vet a program before referring a client. This is usually a top down endeavor. If the person in charge is ethical and focused on client care, it will translate to the program. An example of this can be seen with Any Length recovery programs. The person in charge, Robert White, is one of the most ethical and caring providers in the field today. He has maintained focus on helping people recover from the deadly disease of addiction. Mr. White and his staff are definitely a beacon of light for those in need of help.
