    What We Do

    Avenues Recovery Center located in Northeast Indiana is truly a one of a kind facility. We offer multiple levels of care to support clients in various stages of addiction recovery. Our primary focus is on our 30-day treatment extended care program, rebuilding clients throughout the stages, from helplessness through stability. At Avenues, we treat the whole person – body, mind, and spirit, you will receive personalized care in a clean, modern, home-like setting.

    Life skills, wellness, nutrition, social acceptance, financial responsibilities, and family values are all key components of our treatment plans. As our clients progress so does the individualized care. The residential program style incorporates a few luxurious sober living facilities separate from the treatment center to remove the institutionalized feel of entering treatment. We also offer evening Intensive Outpatient (IOP), and Outpatient (OP) therapy for our local clients.
