About the Company

We believe that Recovery is Additive. So, by adding the coping skills and the necessary resources to our Substance Abuse Outpatient practice program, we feel these things will be key in the journey to recovery. We use the six dimensions of the ASAM Criteria which explores an individual's recovery or living situation, including the surrounding people, places, and things. A person's needs are just as important as their will to recover from addiction.

Those needs could include: Resource links to Housing, Financial Assistance, Vocational, Educational, Legal, Transportation, and Childcare services.

At Zeno Wellness Group, we work hard to build strong resources and a supportive After-Care community that lasts far beyond treatment. We believe that, together, peer recovery support, empowerment, and fellowship produce actual results.
