At Realization Center, we understand that aging factors such as physical, emotional, social, spiritual and cognitive issues can slow the treatment process for mature adults.

As always, our care is client-driven and participants are given a holistic, or “whole-person” assessment.



During treatment, specific addiction issues relating to older adults are addressed in group therapy and individual sessions such as:

  • Loss of Memory Secondary to Addiction
  • Life Transitions
  • Shame and Guilt
  • Loneliness and Isolation
  • Lack of Purpose/Loss of Identity
  • Depression
  • Grief and Loss
  • Relationships
  • Medical Concerns
  • Pain Management
  • Accidental addiction-The Prescription Drug Trap

Our older adults are offered medication-assisted treatment and participation in psycho-education about the disease of addiction-when peers interact and support each other; it becomes easier to remove the stigma and barriers to recovery.

Programs include co-ed and gender-specific groups.



  • Flexible hours that work around your work schedule.
  • Couples / Family Counseling to address the effects of addiction on the family as a whole.
  • Counseling to help set healthy boundaries professionally and personally.
  • Guidance to navigate work-related social functions where drugs and alcohol may be present.
  • Our medical / psychiatric staff provides dual diagnosis services for those seeking assistance for addiction along with psychological or emotional problems such as anxiety, depression, bipolar illness and bereavement/ loss.
