“The scariest thing about addiction,” Chris explains. “Nobody knows who has it.”

The Herren Wellness program focuses on the whole person – mind, body and spirit with a personalized, holistic approach to recovery. Each wellness plan is tailored to meet individual needs and enable personal growth and transformation. This all-encompassing approach to treatment provides much needed support and guidance for all stages of recovery.

“When we first opened our doors in 2018, we had a clear mission; to treat individuals and families with dignity and respect,” explains Lori. “Providing families, a parallel support process and never wavering from our belief that no struggle is too small.”

Throughout an individuals healing process, the Herren Wellness team will work with the entire family on their own recovery journey alongside their loved one. At Herren Wellness there are no expectations, no timeline so that a guest can heal and grow at their pace within a community of support and recovery.

“From Graduations and weddings to meeting your child at the bus stop, the [Herren Wellness] teams goes the extra mile to support guests and families for monumental life events,” explains Heather. “This is what sets us apart and makes Herren truly special.”

From that first phone call, to the moment a guest steps on campus, Chris, Lori and Heather are personally involved, working alongside an amazing team that understands the struggle, that each individual journey is different and can share first-hand the gift of recovery.

“Recovery is a superpower,” explains Chris. “It enables us to meet life’s challenges and thrive.”
