Our Philosophy

Print Version and PDF Version

Fifty years ago, chemical dependency was widely believed to be a moral weakness. This belief created a social stigma that prevented millions from reaching out for help. Today we understand that addiction is not caused by moral weakness or a lack of personal character – it is a medical disease over which the addict has no control. As with other diseases, without help the outcome is often tragic.

Fortunately, there is help. Since we opened our doors nearly fifty years ago, Cumberland Heights has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals and their families – over 1,500 new patients last year alone. Five decades of experience has taught us that recovery is not only possible, it’s a path that no one has to walk alone.

Our philosophy and staff are committed to providing the highest quality care possible for addiction recovery. Our treatment programs encompass the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of recovery through professional excellence, the principles of the Twelve Steps, and a safe, loving environment.
