Why Choose Foundations?
Making the decision to go to treatment is complicated. It’s hard to ask for help and can be even harder to know which integrated treatment provider you should entrust with your care. That’s why our goal is simple: to provide honest, straightforward, life-changing help.
At FRN we understand that people are not simply made up of conditions that need to be treated. They are human beings who have unique experiences and their own distinct needs and goals. This is why effective treatment simply cannot be one-size-fits-all.
We sincerely believe that treatment must be something done with you, not to you. Recovery is a partnership and a process.
As you consider your options for treatment, we’ve outlined the promises we’ve made to our clients over the years. We’ve stood behind these promises since the beginning, and these are promises that, should you choose to put your trust in us for treatment, you will experience for yourself.
We Promise to Have Integrity
Our integrity is at the core of all we do. We know that those seeking treatment are often vulnerable to misleading assurances. Foundations Recovery Network does not participate in any malicious marketing practices or work with companies that violate our code of ethics. From our business offices to our treatment centers, our staff are all committed to being trustworthy partners and providing the absolute best experience possible for our patients.

We Promise to Offer Compassionate, Patient-Centered Care
Treatment methods for substance use and mental health issues are constantly evolving as we continue to further research and develop the safest and most effective ways to help patients. However, we have a core treatment philosophy that has remained unchanged from the beginning: we must treat the whole person — physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually — in order to see long-term results.
We genuinely believe that recovery is possible for everyone and often find ourselves encouraging and believing in individuals who have seemingly lost the ability to believe in themselves. We’ve spent more than two decades offering a system of care that focuses on patient-centered, integrated treatment, and we’ll be with you every step of the way through treatment and into a life of recovery.

- Reliance upon motivational enhancement concepts
- Culturally appropriate services

- Strong therapeutic alliance to facilitate initial engagement and retention
- Group-based interventions as a forum for peer support, psychoeducation, and mutual self-help activities
- A side-by-side approach to life skills training, education, and support
- Community-based services to attend to clinical, housing, social, or other needs
- Fundamental optimism regarding ‘hope in recovery’ by all staff. (SAMHSA/CSAT 2005)
We Promise to Go Above and Beyond Industry Standards
Many treatment facilities promote their ability to diagnose and treat co-occurring disorders. However, few are able to live up to the standards set by Foundations Recovery Network. Our facilities annually meet DDCAT criteria for Dual Diagnosis Enhanced (DDE) services, a designation only achieved by the top 5% of treatment providers.
In fact, in an independent review conducted by Dr. Mark McGovern, a member of Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center and one of the developers of the DDCAT, FRN’s programs were referred to as the “gold standard” of the treatment industry.
In a letter explaining Foundations’ DDCAT rating, Dr. Mark McGovern wrote, “Patients learn their diagnosis, they learn what they need to do to treat their illness, and they talk about it with a measure of acceptance and openness atypical of addiction treatment settings.
Foundations Recovery Network also goes above and beyond industry standards by assessing and openly reporting its treatment effectiveness and abstinence rates post treatment. These are not individual case studies, but rather, they are the result of years of data collection taken at intake and again at one month, six months and 12 months after treatment.
Very few private addiction treatment providers are willing to be fully transparent with their outcomes but real results must be open for scrutiny by completely independent groups. At FRN, we have a nearly 20-year history of gathering valid, reliable research outcomes that exceed SAMHSA standards of data collection. Our findings are regularly presented at addiction conferences and shared with the treatment community at large in peer-reviewed journals so that the benefit of our work is multiplied.
