Patti specializes in treating those with addiction and their families. Her approach to treatment is to treat the whole being; mind, body and spirit. “It’s all about choices. We can choose to believe that a power greater than our self (God) can restore us (mind, body) to sanity and live a life filled with purpose and fulfillment or not. It’s your choice.”
By using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, strategies from the 12-Step program with a Christ-centered focus, treatment and recovery are tailored made for the individual to help them make healthy choices for their life.
