Active Recovery Network uses an interdisciplinary team approach. Our case managers, therapists, therapeutic mentors and life and recovery coaches support, encourage and challenge our clients to move through their resistances and beyond self-imposed, limiting thoughts and beliefs. We work to inspire action toward values-based goals daily and serve as a sounding board to encourage our clients to meet and overcome internal and external obstacles.
