Our Christian Rehab Administrative and Clinical Staff
When you choose Christian addiction treatment at Celebrate Hope, you receive the highest level of individualized care from trained experts committed to excellence. We strive to provide a safe, supportive, and confidential environment where clients can comfortably communicate and learn to cope. Each individual enrolled in our comprehensive, in-depth Christian drug and alcohol rehab program will work with a team of loving, compassionate professionals who have a strong commitment to helping clients attain freedom from addiction.
Our dedicated staff has a combined 75 years of experience in addiction recovery, behavioral health, and treatment of co-occurring disorders and dual diagnosis. This expertise affords us intimate knowledge and understanding of the unique needs of those undergoing treatment. Our Christian counselors utilize proven therapy techniques that adhere to the 12-step Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous programs. Drawing from personal success stories of staff members who have dealt with their own addictions, our Christian rehabilitation team infuses renewed hope for the fulfilling life that God intended.
Your success is our priority! That’s why we only employ clinical professionals who have not only demonstrated a proven track record of performance—but have profound compassion for our clients and their healing process. Our faith-based addiction treatment counselors include a licensed clinical psychologist and a licensed marriage and family therapist. By working in both one-on-one and group settings, we uncover each participant’s strengths and gifts that will help him or her flourish in a drug-free life.
From the time you walk through our door to the time you leave our California Christian rehab center, rest assured that we will do everything in our power to address all of your concerns—day or night, 24/7! Our genuine concern, exceptional credentials, and superior care will facilitate life changes and promote lifelong sobriety.
