Do You Find Yourself…

Spending every cent you make on drugs that can kill you?

Roaming the streets in zero degrees, because you cannot hold down a job?

Listening to your mother sob helplessly, as she watches you slip away?

Lying, manipulating even stealing, to get the fix you need NOW?

Choosing opiates or alcohol over your parents, your partner, your kids — your life?

There is hope.

We know because we’ve helped hundreds of courageous people like you start fresh.

We help resilient people like you — men and women with vibrant years ahead of them — find a safe haven where they can discover their worth, reconnect with loved ones, and embrace a limitless future.


This was my first time in treatment, and I was scared to death. But The Core Centers made it easy for me to get the help I needed. I am so lucky to have found this place. The staff genuinely cares and I’ve learned so much about myself and my addiction. I know that if it weren’t for the people I’ve met here and the love I’ve been shown, I might not be alive today. I’m excited about my future because I know it won’t look like my past.

This is not just about drugs or alcohol.

We treat the underlying anxiety, depression, and trauma that make you more susceptible to substance abuse.

For most people, addiction is just a symptom of latent mental health challenges: anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders, or others. These challenges are often overlooked—or ignored—in traditional rehabilitation.

At CORE, we know that balanced mental health is the ONLY way to achieve real recovery…and a beautiful life.

Our dual-diagnosis approach empowers you to make changes that last.

We’re certified by the AHCA to treat major mental health illness, in addition to substance abuse. We start with a thorough medical evaluation to identify your mental health challenges, then create a plan of action. Our doctors might prescribe medications to stabilize your condition, or make pointed recommendations for therapies that’ll work best for you.

The goal? Treat the root issues of your substance abuse, so you can free yourself for good.
