The GEARS Program

Change And Recovery From Addiction Is Possible
Through our GEARS curriculum, we teach clients that the content of their heart determines who they are and how they see themselves. When their hearts believe something, their mindset and thinking will determine the direction of their lives and behaviors. If our clients’ hearts believe they are liars, cheaters and addicted to substances, their minds will think it, and their lifestyles will reflect it. However, when a person’s basic human needs are fulfilled, his character, disposition, outlook and condition of his heart will change. When his heart changes and is satisfied, his mindset, actions and behaviors will reflect it.
The GEARS drug treatment methodology upholds that change and recovery from addiction occurs when our basic human needs are met, resulting in a balanced and satisfied life.
