A welcoming environment and addiction specialists near you
At Mirmont Treatment Center we take a holistic and empathic approach to addiction and mental health that includes body-centered therapy, trauma-informed treatment, and the practice of daily mindfulness. But what most people who come through our doors say about us is that we treat patients like we’d treat our own friends and families with addiction. That’s because many of us have experienced the pain of drug and alcohol addiction ourselves or have seen the effects of it in our homes and communities. We understand—and we understand what you’re going through.
