Our Philosophy

backyard at bay area recoveryOur drug and alcohol treatment philosophy incorporates a variety of clinical components to create a comprehensive and effective treatment program. The components include detox, individual therapy, group therapy, and ongoing recovery treatment as needed.

Our clinical staff is comprised of dedicated professionals led by Dr. Patricia Corke M.D., who is an addictionologist and psychiatrist with 44 years of experience in Houston, TX.

We strongly believe that in order for treatment to be successful, each client's individual circumstances must be taken into consideration. Everyone comes to us with a unique story and their road to healing differs as well.

Thus, while our drug and alcohol treatment programs are primarily designed to address the client’s addiction, the staff works closely with them during all stages of treatment and addresses their individual needs as they arise, using modalities that the client responds to.

Our goal is for every client to discontinue their abuse patterns and rebuild their lives using the tools and resources from our alcohol and drug abuse treatment programs.

Additional objectives we strive to achieve include helping everyone that participates in a treatment program at Bay Area Recover Center:

  • improve mental and physical energy
  • increase understanding of personal responsibility
  • develop a connection with the world around them
  • improve ability to take care of themselves
  • identify spiritual beliefs and connections
  • enhance mental clarity and focus

Our Team

Our clinical staff also includes registered nurses, social workers, a licensed professional counselor, licensed chemical dependency counselors, counselor interns and substance abuse technicians.

Employing a strong team of experienced therapists, counselors, psychiatrists, and addiction treatment professionals, we allow families to have peace of mind knowing that their loved ones will have the highest level of care during their stay at our rehabilitation facility.
