RecoverUs Centers Carbondale


RecoverUs is an out-patient, non-narcotic treatment facility located here in Carbondale, for those addicted to opiates and other drugs including alcohol. We offer a radical new approach to recovery, a unique combination of allopathic medicine, nutrition, psychology, licensed addiction counseling and alternative therapies designed to treat the whole person, not just the addiction. The process takes 8-14 days for the initial detoxification. After you are free from addiction, we help with long-term brain restoration, forming new patterns, and a life free from the effects of drugs and alcohol.

As you are aware, addiction does not discriminate, it effects all genders, races, religions, ages, and education levels. Today, too many professionals, teenagers and young adults are fighting the fight, some in silence and others may have a close friend or family member struggling.
