Rainbow's End Recovery Center was established in 2011 as a co-ed dual-diagnosis facility with the intent of providing individualized treatment for people suffering from drug and/or alcohol and co-occurring psychological conditions. Each client is assessed on arrival and a treatment protocol is developed to address his/her needs. Some may need more drug and alcohol counseling; some may have underlying traumas which require EMDR; some may have been self-medicating with street drugs or alcohol; some may have been misdiagnosed or had psychological problems left untreated; many have been through previous treatments unsuccessfully.
