What Sets Us Apart

What distinguishes NCTC from other treatment centers is our clinically-based approach to addiction treatment. 

Our highly credentialed staff includes medical doctors, registered nurses, licensed professional counselors, and licensed chemical dependency counselors. Our team utilizes evidence-based therapies that are proven to be effective in treating substance use disorder (SUD) and co-occurring mental health disorders.

This way, we can be sure that you are getting the care, support, and compassion you need during your recovery journey.

Person-Centered Therapy

Person-centered therapy is a non-directive approach that emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist. 

Our compassionate therapists create a non-judgmental environment where clients can safely explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Through this process, clients develop a greater sense of self-awareness and self-acceptance, which can lead to positive changes in their lives.

Trauma-Informed Care

Many individuals who struggle with substance abuse have experienced trauma in their lives. Our trauma-informed approach recognizes the impact of trauma on an individual’s mental health and substance use. 

Our compassionate staff creates a supportive environment where clients can process their traumatic experiences and develop healthy coping mechanisms. 

At NCTC, we believe that a comprehensive, clinically-based approach is essential to achieving lasting recovery. Our experienced team is dedicated to providing the highest quality care to help our clients overcome their substance abuse and build a foundation for a healthy, fulfilling life.

Personalized Treatment Plans

We understand that each client’s journey to recovery is unique. That’s why we develop personalized treatment plans that address each individual’s specific needs, challenges, and goals. 

Our comprehensive dual diagnosis support ensures that clients receive the care they need for both their substance abuse and any underlying mental health issues.

Intimate Living Accommodations

At NCTC, we believe that a comfortable and supportive living environment is essential to the recovery process. Our intimate living accommodations provide a safe and welcoming space where clients can focus on their healing and personal growth.

Family Involvement and Alumni Support

We understand that each client’s journey to recovery is unique. That’s why we develop personalized treatment plans that address each individual’s specific needs, challenges, and goals. 

Our comprehensive dual diagnosis support ensures that clients receive the care they need for both their substance abuse and any underlying mental health issues.
