Our Belief About Recovery
Once you seek treatment at Safe Harbor, you are part of our community. When you enter our facility, we are committed to embracing you in our community as well as ensuring you remain linked to our community once you leave us. We believe one of the biggest steps in recovery is what happens when you leave our program. This is because recovery is considered a forward journey that thrives when you maintain a commitment to ongoing support. Therefore, it is our goal to remain a resource for you.
