Who is Recovery Works?

Recovery Works provides treatment for addiction in residential, outpatient and transitional living settings and provides a full continuum of care. The organization has operated for over a decade.

  • The Recovery Works multidisciplinary team includes medical, nursing, clinical and support staff. We offer faith and church services on a voluntary basis. We work to repair the most important relationships.
  • Our medical director oversees medical and nursing treatment. Individualized treatment is comprised of a variety of evidence based interventions and practices.
  • Recovery Works locations are CARF accredited and licensed by the state to provide all levels of care for alcohol and drug treatment. We accept most forms of insurance and work directly with insurance companies to provide necessary levels of inpatient stays.
  • According to recent estimates, the total financial cost of drug use disorders to the United States is estimated to be $180 billion annually. As the U.S. economy faces unsustainable escalations in health care costs, we must work together to provide solutions. Recovery Works programs help to reduce health and societal costs.

“We have hired the majority of our team locally. We work closely with all communities in which we operate. The challenge of addiction is one that we confront as both individuals and neighborhoods.

Our staff will be comprised of physicians, nurses, master level clinicians, administrative and support staff. Our current staffing projection is ultimately 50 individuals,” Thorn said.
