“Willow Springs was an answer to my prayers. All of the staff from the cafeteria, techs, facilitators, nurses, counselors and director were awesome and genuinely caring and kind. They made me feel totally at home and at ease. The beds are very comfortable and there’s a flat screen TV in every room. They take you to outside meetings. The steps are worked here one on one with counselor. Food is fantastic. Sunday there is an outing to go bowling/laser tag, putt putt/go carts, water park etc to reward those with good class attendance which I thought was very cool. I would highly recommend Willow Springs to anyone who wants to change their life.”


“I was struggling for months trying to stop using on my own and was very sick and landed in the hospital. I flew out to Willow springs and they had comfortable rooms, great food, awesome techs counselors, Doctor nurses, and 2 nurse practitioners that knew exactly what I needed and how often to make things as easy as possible. As a parent I knew I needed to get better for myself and my son and I don’t believe I could have done this without them. I highly recommend this place!!


“Willow Springs is truly a blessing and I am eternally grateful to my Higher Power for allowing me to see this path with the help of his Angels/the Staff there. The loving, contagious, energy fills the atmosphere there and if you trust the process, you too, will find a new way of life that is full of purpose! Thank you Willow for being an option for this addict!!!”


“Great staff and great counselors. This place challenged me in so many ways and made me realize that I am responsible for my recovery but I will need help doing it. This place helped me have a life that I’m proud of today.”


“I arrived at Willow Springs in February of this year. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The program in all was amazing I am now 7 months sober and still going. I would like to thank everyone on the staff for giving me the best treatment I could ask for. If anyone asks me where they can get good treatment for addiction I will definitely recommend willow springs. ”





You can’t control your addiction if you’re intoxicated, but it can be difficult, dangerous, even deadly to stop alcohol or drug use on your own. At Willow Springs, we will medically monitor your detox to ensure you start rehab safely and on the right foot.



If you want to end your alcohol or drug abuse but can’t stop on your own because there are too many reminders and temptations, inpatient rehab might be right for you. With inpatient rehab at Willow, you live at the rehab center, your therapeutic and basic needs are provided onsite, and there are few-to-no opportunities to relapse.

Dual Diagnosis


Dual diagnosis is when drug ort alcohol abuse is caused by or the cause of a co-occurring mental health disorder such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, or bipolar disorder. Willow Springs checks for both at intake to improve the chances of long-term recovery. 

12 Step


Willow Springs provides many tools to achieve long-term sobriety, including the 12-step program of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. While not a treatment for addiction itself, working the steps—acknowledging your alcohol or drug abuse, resolving to end it, making amends to those you’ve wronged, and assisting others with their addictions—helps many get and stay sober. 

SMART Recovery


While faith-based 12-step programs help many, Willow Springs knows that others want science-based plans that teach self-reliance. SMART Recovery (Self-Management and Recovery Training) stresses that the best way to maintain your sobriety is to understand what people, places, or things trigger a lapse.



Relapse prevention is an essential piece of the puzzle, as with any drug or alcohol rehab program. Knowing what to do when a trigger experience is faced is a key part of successfully avoiding a relapse.  Our counselors have the ability to teach you the skills needed in attaining long-term sobriety.

Clinical approach

Willow Springs uses the latest and best evidence-based therapies to craft a recovery plan for your means and needs. We pre-assess your condition, determine if you need treatment for a co-occurring mental health issue, provide medically supervised detoxification if needed, a range of psychological therapies, address your spiritual needs, and follow through with aftercare advice.

Activities offered

Although the focus at Willow Springs is on recovery, it isn’t all counseling and lectures. Recovery involves the whole person, so you can take part in sporting activities— basketball, swimming, tennis, volleyball—stroll along the walking paths, or hang around the fire pit with your electronic devices.

Individualized treatment

No one treatment is right for everyone, so at Willow Springs we are prepared for with a full toolbox. We can help you detox, offer medication-assisted treatment, select the right personal therapy, faith- or science-based, and the length of time needed to keep you on the path to sobriety.


Take a virtual tour of Willow Springs Recovery’s climate-controlled rooms, fitness center, green surroundings, open spaces, and outdoor facilities. Relax outside, lounge by the pool, or go for a walk. 


Willow Springs knows a peaceful exterior will help you to create a peaceful interior. Our 38-acre campus features not only comfortably-sized rooms and a chef on site but plenty of space to relax outdoors: a pond and a pool, an attractive spot to lounge around, and a full gymnasium. 

Structured treatment schedule

In recovery, idle hands are the devil’s workshop, so Willow Springs offers an almost full schedule of treatment and activities. With time for reflection, specific mealtimes, life skill classes and group therapy, you will have the structure you need for recovery.




Opioids are among the most abused drugs, responsible for the nationwide drug overdose crisis. Opioids include medicines often prescribed for pain—morphine, codeine, Oxycontin, Percocet, Vicodin—illegal drugs never prescribed, such as heroin, and those rarely prescribed but often abused, such as fentanyl. 



Ethyl alcohol or ethanol is a socially acceptable beverage but in 2017, more people died from alcohol-related causes—alcohol poisoning, increased cancer risk, automobile accidents, heart failure, cirrhosis (and other liver damage), and violence—than opioids. For some people with alcohol use disorder, to stop drinking cold turkey can be fatal.



Freely available substances such as caffeine and nicotine are stimulants, but so are prescription medications that increase alertness, attention, and energy, both legal (Ritalin, Concerta), and illegal (cocaine, MDMA, methamphetamine). Also known as “uppers”, stimulant abuse seems to be on the rise, which sometimes follows an opioid epidemic.



Benzodiazepines or “benzos” are tranquilizers such as Valium and Xanax that are prescribed for anti-anxiety but are frequently abused alongside other drugs to intensify the high, come down from a high or to prevent withdrawal. Side effects include dizziness, slurred speech, blurred vision, and coma.



Barbiturates are depressants (Amytal, Nembutal, Seconal) that are rarely prescribed any longer—except for anesthesia, sedation, traumatic brain injury, and seizures—unless other, safer drugs aren’t effective. Despite this, their abuse continues, which can be fatal, especially in combination with other drugs such as alcohol, opioids, and benzodiazepines. 



Hallucinogens are psychoactive substances that cause hallucinations, including psilocybin (“magic” mushrooms), LSD, PCP, DMT, MDMA (“ecstasy”), and ketamine. Sometimes taken as party drugs, they can produce dissociative effects, panic, paranoia, psychosis, and heart failure. 



Also known as cannabis, and now legal in more than half the US states (though not under Federal law), while its health and addiction risks are hotly contested, it can cause dependency, illness, and death. Its use as an e-cigarette liquid for vaping (on the black market, at least) may be responsible for thousands of lung injuries and dozens of deaths. 



Depressants or “downers” are any drugs or substances that slow brain activity, ease anxiety or cause drowsiness. They include alcohol, opioids, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and marijuana, all of which can be addictive, impair physical and mental health, and lead to or cause death.
