Mission Statement of ORTCA

We are a group of dedicated and caring people who form a unique and special company with a unique and special mission. Opiate Recovery Therapy Center of America exists to insure that all human beings have the chance to realize their fullest potential no matter what obstacles, no matter what challenge. We care. We serve. With compassion, with skill, with effectiveness, with results, and with respect.

Philosophy of ORTCA

This program is based upon a foundation which respects and offers support to individuals who are struggling with opiate addiction. Our program believes that opiate addiction is a disease and can be treated successfully with caring and supportive staff. We believe that the excessive use of any drug reduces the overall quality of human existence and endangers physical, mental health, and life expectancy. We believe that it is important to intervene actively and aggressively with care against physical, psychological, social, vocational, and spiritual crisis exhibited by the dependent patient. We believe that the patient should have access to quality services at a reasonable cost.
