Alcare Place provides a structured, client-centered residential recovery program focused on the development of essential life skills that support long-term success.


Helping adult males help themselves in the ongoing struggle for sobriety from alcohol, drugs, and gambling.

Supporting our clients throughout their treatment and showing them that they can incorporate themselves back into society and live in sobriety.





"By the time I was in my late twenties I was using drugs on a daily basis. My wife left with our daughters and I was all alone, depressed and without hope. I knew I needed help and a friend told me about Alcare Place. I stayed at Alcare for one year and I participated in all of their daily recovery groups and programs. My obsession to use drugs subsided and I learned how to live life on life's terms. Their programs saved my life. I have reunited with my family and I am becoming the loving, caring and responsible husband and father that I always wanted to be."
