About Horizons of Hope
Horizons of Hope is a uniquely comprehensive substance abuse treatment program that treats body, soul and spirit. It is an extension of Natural Horizons Wellness Center* - a well-established, holistic medical facility in Fairfax, Virginia that specializes in providing integrative healthcare by combining the best of conventional and alternative disciplines.
There are many recovery centers and treatment options available, most of which adhere to a conventional psychological counseling model that has been in place for 60 years. While this method alone has worked for some people, the majority of patients relapse within their first year of sobriety. Studies show that programs utilizing an integrative approach to treatment have long-term success rates as high as 80%.
Horizon of Hope's dynamic recovery program is medically based with a strong focus on achieving complete biologic repair. Our program includes many therapies and protocols proven to successfully thwart addiction and help people get their lives back on track:
- Detailed Diagnostic Assessments
- IV Therapy/Oral Supplementation**
- Nutrition and Lifestyle Counseling and Management
- Substance Abuse Counseling/Support
- Adjunctive Therapies
