We serve our clients in a nurturing environment that is designed to empower you and help you to achieve full recovery. We aim to provide a safe, secure and relaxing place for our clients to heal their wounds and learn new, effective ways of coping with the difficult challenges that they face.
Our vision is to be the best treatment facility in the nation. To that end, we have maintained Joint Commission accreditation since our inception. The Gold Seal of Approval we proudly display is a symbol of our commitment to providing top quality care at all times for each and every individual who enters our programs.
Clients in our care are taught the skills to:
– Assess their lives and the choices they have made
– Articulate their goals and future aspirations
– Ascertain their triggers and identify the things that have hindered them in the past
– Identify problematic thinking and negative outcomes
– Acquire new coping skills and healthy support networks to reach their goals
– Achieve long term success through mastery at home, school, work and in significant relationships
Growth Extended is founded on the fundamental principles of the acronym for the word “faith”. It took faith to found this company, to hire its staff and to create each program we offer. We have faith that every client who enters our care will see improvement and develop the skills they need to reach their full potential. The core believes that are essential to all the work we do are:
F – Family
At Growth Extended, family will play a key role in your treatment. For better or for worse, your family are part of the reason you are who you are today. Because of this they should also play a role in your recovery. Your family can have a profound effect on the trajectory of your life and it is important that they learn to support you throughout your healing journey and beyond. The family system must be realigned and your family must learn to provide healthy boundaries for you as you heal. Families are invited to participate in treatment in three important ways; conjoint sessions (weekly or bi-weekly), parenting support groups and Weekend Restoration Workshops.
A – Appreciation
We are honored that you have chosen us to guide you on your journey and we do not take that charge lightly. You have entrusted us with loving you, caring for you and equipping you with the tools that you need to set on the path to a full recovery. We take this mission seriously and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to be there with you while you heal. In an effort to show you our appreciation we have equipped our facilities with the finest and most modern amenities available. Facilities are elegant, warm, brightly colored and comfortable; just the environment you need when you are focusing on yourself, your health and your future. Through in-depth individualized and research based treatment we will do everything we can to make you see how much we care. Additionally, we support you even after you graduate with an open ended invitation to attend our alumni groups – free of charge.
I – Integrity
Honesty and strong moral principles inform every decision that is made at Growth Extended. From how we spend our budget to whom we should hire, or how to improve the quality of our services, integrity is the motivating force behind it all. We believe that even the smallest details are important and we have scrutinized every aspect of our treatment programs from the treatment modalities used to the colors on the walls. We proudly recognize that although it may not always be convenient, integrity in word and deed are what Growth Extended is built on.
T – Training/Teaching
We are blessed beyond measure to live in a first world country in the 21st century. However, modern society comes with new and ever evolving stressors that no human being had been faced with before. We live in an ever growing and changing world and as such our team must stay on the cutting edge of research in order to provide our clients with the most successful treatment. Staff trainings, weekly treatment team meetings, continuing education hours and ongoing enrichment workshops are offered internally to staff and to the community at large.
H – Hard Work
Everyone at Growth Extended works hard every day to ensure that our clients receive the best care we can possibly give them. From Program Managers to Academic Coordinators, to our Quality Assurance department and even our cleaning crew, hard work is central to our daily commitment. All the way up the chain, each and every person at Growth Extended is driven by the desire to do good in this world, first and foremost by you and your family. Whether you or your loved one struggles with mental health, an eating disorder, addiction or more than one of these afflictions, we recognize that the choice you have made to get help was difficult. For this reason we work hard every day to ensure that your path to recovery is as smooth, comfortable and enlightening as possible.
Our mission, values and core beliefs represent the deepest devotion that we have to providing second-to-none services to you and your family.
