Focus on Recovery
At Marworth, you or your loved one will be treated as an individual with a unique history, lifestyle, and values. Alcohol and chemical dependency knows no boundaries … occupational, social, and educational. The common thread we see in almost all of the people we treat is the suffering and impact on the individual and the family.

Our course of treatment is personalized and compassionate, yet firmly rooted in the 12-Step Program for recovery. We follow a structured and intense clinical program that uses a variety of therapeutic techniques. We also realize the importance of the family, and involve those closest to you every step of the way.
