The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment Centers (ADATC), operates three different facilities that allows people to get back and enjoy life again.

Like any other disease, alcoholism or drug addiction requires professional treatment. It is a primary, progressive, and fatal disease, without treatment it will get worse—never better. Yet, some individuals and families still try to treat this disease alone. Unfortunately, improvements are always temporary, and the relapses are always more severe.
However, with treatment and abstinence, there is a one hundred percent chance of recovery. That’s truly an amazing statistic! It’s possible with professional help.
What happens when people recover? They get healthier and
learn to feel good about themselves. Relationships with family and friends improve. They can laugh and feel joy. All in all, life gets better—a whole lot better.
