To lead in the education, treatment and healing for those affected by alcohol and other drug addiction.
To make recovery a reality.
In 2007, a group of dedicated and concerned individuals from Amarillo, Texas, united to create ARAD-Amarillo Recovery from Alcohol and Drugs. This nonprofit organization was formed out of a concern for individuals and families impacted by substance misuse and the unwavering belief that treatment is effective and recovery is possible. Encouraged by the generosity of many local benefactors, an outpatient treatment center for sheltered homeless persons began successful operation in 2013.
Building on that success, ARAD opened a residential treatment program in January 2017. The program brings affordable, personalized, comprehensive and holistic treatment to individuals struggling with substance misuse and related behavioral health issues. ARAD serves individuals and families from the Amarillo area and beyond.
Our Treatment Philosophy
At ARAD, we believe that people are resilient, and that with proper education, treatment and support from our highly skilled and dedicated treatment team, recovery can become real, both for individuals who have been misusing substances and for those closest to them.
Human beings are vulnerable to life’s ups and downs; for some people, the use of substances and other mood-altering behaviors becomes a way to cope, which eventually causes pain and heartache for individuals, families and communities. Like a stone dropped into a lake, the ripples caused by substance misuse travel outward, washing over others.
ARAD recognizes that individuals who struggle with substance use disorders are not “bad” people, but human beings who are suffering from treatable physiological conditions. We’re dedicated to helping residents achieve total health and wellness while in care and providing them with skills and tools that will support longevity in sobriety and a healthy, balanced lifestyle far beyond residential care.
Let us help you make recovery real.
