Our Mission

We will educate, empower, and provide compassionate recovery support services for those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction and their families to strive toward the overall wellness and stability of our community.

focus on Personalized Recovery Plans

Making a big change like putting down drugs and alcohol and giving recovery a try can be frightening and sometimes difficult. Families are not always sure what direction to turn, and through our trained, recovery coaches and staff, we will work with you to tailor a personalized recovery plan. Some recovery journeys may be different and needs change as we grow, so our coaches work with you through this perpetual change to determine what goals you want to work on like getting your license reinstated, finding employment, finding housing, and much more. At Amare we focus on life domains that every person needs to fulfill their purpose and live a healthy, sustainable life.

  • It is your recovery plan, we just help you through your journey.

  • Your assigned coach isn’t there to tell you what to do, but to provide support and help you make the decisions you want.

  • Everyone deserves health, happiness, and stability. Amare helps you get there.
