Hempstead Family Treatment & Recovery Center

Our Philosophy

We believe that a substance use disorder is not only a treatable disease but an opportunity for a person to begin a new journey in life with new opportunities for growth and development. Through treatment, a person can find balance and meaning in his or her life and discover a deeper connection to themselves and to others.  Download brochure.
