ARAD is a comprehensive treatment & recovery center providing compassionate, individualized treatment programs that help people get & stay sober.
We believe in the strength and resiliency of the individual, as such we tailor each participant's treatment program around what will get results for him or her. We also believe that recovery is not punishment and it shouldn’t feel like it; our comprehensive & holistic treatment options help people get healthy and overcome the disease they struggle with while maintaining our participants comfort.
The environment at ARAD is relaxed and we provide a safe place to begin recovery through a combination of seclusion from all drugs & alcohol (including nicotine) and support from of our inclusive community of professionals, program alumni and other participants in recovery. Our highly credentialed clinical team and dedicated staff understand recovery and we are ready, right now, to help you and your family see recovery become real for you and your situation.
Established in 2007, Amarillo Recovery from Alcohol and Drugs (ARAD) was born out of the unwavering belief that with effective research-backed treatment, life-long recovery from substance misuse is possible.
The initial ARAD program that operated out of homeless & emergency shelters quickly grew into an outpatient center in 2013 which still operates in partnership with the shelter to this day. The successes and limitations of those programs raised community awareness about the need for a comprehensive treatment center to serve our region.
Learning from those years of experience, Amarillo and surrounding communities rallied the resources necessary to hire a qualified, accomplished and compassionate staff to open our new facility in 2018 and bring to Amarillo a suite of holistic and traditional programs and treatment options that rival any facility in America.
ARAD’s comprehensive, residential treatment center is licensed as a Substance Abuse Treatment Facility in the State of Texas. We understand the importance of privacy and maintain strict adherence to HIPAA rules & regulations regarding confidentiality. We work with both clients and families to address their needs with sensitivity & discretion.
