Helping people into a lifestyle of wellness and recovery is similar to rebuilding a house after it’s damaged. If you want to rebuild a building you need a blueprint. At PCI our blueprints, individualized treatment plans, take into account your developmental history, present circumstances, family dynamics, medical needs, emotional challenges, and any struggles you may have had with drugs, alcohol, sex, shopping, pornography, or other potentially addictive experiences.

Advocacy is a core component of the PCI mission. In order to help the most clients and others suffering from addiction and mental health issues PCI has developed a unique advocacy approach. Keep Reading
We are actively engaged in research projects, using data from our treatment outcomes to prove just how effective and cost saving our model of treatment has been for our clients. Specifically, we administer the same measures suggested by the American Psychiatric Association, the DSM-5 “Cross-Cutting Symptom Measures” on a monthly basis to track our clients’ progress in learning to manage their affective states as they continue on a journey of wellness through sobriety and developing healthier relationships. We will be sharing our data and outcomes on a regular basis at professional meetings, seminars, and conferences because we believe in transparency. We are confident in our relationship-driven and science-driven model, and yet, part of being a science-driven institute is being flexible and open to change as more data are collected showing new trends.
Another way in which we advocate for the best possible outcome for those struggling with addiction and mental health issues is through spreading science using the world’s most popular platforms. PCI maintains a Facebook and Twitter account solely for the purposes of sharing the most up-to-date science of how the brain works, what research shows is effective for treatment, new innovations in the clinical psychology literature, and much much more. From experience we have learned that an misinformed public and uniformed professionals means people do not receive the care they deserve.
