6/2020 — Testimonial from Jen (Currently two-and-a-half years in recovery from opiates):

"29 months ago I was hopeless and desperate. I was addicted to opiates and saw no way out. A friend told me about the then 'Center for Compassionate Recovery'  now 'Waterstone Counseling Centers', a place where I could get help getting free from opiates in a safe, non-judgmental and doctor monitored process. I called on a Saturday and was at the office for my intake by Monday. My encounters with the receptionist that answered the phone, the doctor I met for my initial visit, and the office staff, all gave me something I had not felt in a long time - hope. From my first day until now, I have been treated with respect and dignity. I was not always an easy patient and often wanted to give up and quit. Alison, from the front office, has called me at times simply to encourage and convince me to keep going. The doctors gave me their personal phone numbers and have been available any hour of the day or night to answer my questions and ease my fears. From individual sessions where I was met with understanding, to weekly group therapy where I made lasting connections with other clients, I feel as though I have created a network of people I can call, trust and count on. I am eternally grateful to this program."

Change Is Possible

We seek to create an atmosphere of trust, respect, compassion, and reliability with each client we care for in our treatment program. Each person is presented with unique challenges and life stories. We are motivated to meet each client exactly where they are and grant them the respect and dignity they deserve.

We Can Help


HELP Is On The Way

We are unique in our capacity to develop individualized substance use therapy that combines proven cutting-edge medicine with professional, compassionate psychotherapy in a welcoming environment. We are employing telemedicine for safety during the COVID-19 crisis.



Medication-assisted addiction therapy (MAT) strategies have been demonstrated to be more effective than therapy-alone and medication-alone strategies to treat addiction by a growing body of empirical evidence. Our approach is evidence-based and  highly flexible for custom tailored care.


LONG-TERM  Outcomes

Our highly personalized MAT program is designed to tailor the best treatment option in a healing environment that is conducive to providing our clients long term success. Our emphasis on whole-person healing is reflected in our home-like environments and  staff-client relations.



It is our philosophy that every individual is unique and has unique challenges. Our clinicians and counselors believe firmly in what they do, but mostly they believe that our programs work. We do not simply deploy clinical protocols to our clients, we provide individualized caring solutions.
