The AToN Center recognizes that addiction is a family disease that affects the entire family system. We believe that each member of the client’s family deserves the opportunity to engage in therapy in order to overcome the wounds attached to drug and alcohol abuse.

The 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous
1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol — that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understoo...

Not all treatment centers are created equal. Never mind the five star dining, or the pastoral estate accommodations! What sets AToN apart from other substance disorder programs? The people, the human element which is quite intangible. I have never experienced a staff who were all so dedicated in helping clients with their journey into recovery. From freshly baked macaroons, to AToN’s cutting edge approach in the areas of education, spirituality and holistic medicine. You will not be disappointed! I appreciated the “one size does NOT fit all” approach to recovery. You are encouraged to pursue and utilize what works for you and your journey into a sober lifestyle. I cannot stress enough how life changing AToN was for myself and those around me.

As someone who works with clients struggling with trauma histories, chronic relapse and failed treatments, I look for.treatment programs that excel in clinical approach and who offer much more than the standard rehab.. What I've discovered in AToN center is a program that excels in areas that most addiction programs are unable to provide. The phrase 'trauma-informed" is being tossed around frequently these days, with little comprehension of the impact all levels of traumatic experiences have on us. Without the clinical and intuitive understanding of this there can't be true recovery for those who also struggle with addiction. AToN has a premier clinical staff, who possess the vital additional ingredient of genuineness, and a true commitment to their client's recovery. The facilities and grounds are beyond peaceful and offer the perfect setting to heal. I highly recommend this program.

AToN and all the staff have consistently demonstrated a professionally caring and ethical approach to treatment. I have benefited from their educational events over the years and appreciate the knowledge and expertise of the clinicians who provide services at AToN. A big thank you also to Keith Fosgett for his ongoing collaboration with community clinicians and programs that allows us all to work together in the best possible way for our clients. AToN is at the top of my list for referring clients I work with, as well as informing my colleagues of the great work they do. Thank you AToN.
