What We Believe


Magnolia Center embraces the holistic view that people are created and exist within a bio- psycho-social-spiritual framework. Free will and personal choice provide the dignity that encompasses the human condition, and uniquely separates humans from animal and plant life. Natural and logical rewards and consequences follow this ability and people have the opportunity to learn to make positive choices as they mature through the bio-psycho-social-spiritual and developmental process.

People are also designed for a purpose and are endowed with unique gifts, talents and abilities. To live life to the fullest, everyone should have:


People are also designed for a purpose and are endowed with unique gifts, talents and abilities. To live life to the fullest, everyone should have:

  • Something to Hope for
  • Someone to Love
  • Something to Do
  • Somewhere to Belong



While physical and sociological factors may impact opportunity, Magnolia Center believes in the human spirit and the Divine relationship between humans and God. History and human stories of success and accomplishment abound to show that:

  • Life is difficult and often unfair
  • Obstacles were made to be overcome
  • Humanity is bestowed with the unique ability, determination and attributes to meet life’s challenges.


A Developmental Approach



Addiction is viewed from a bio-psycho-social-spiritual perspective. It is NOT a moral failure, bus is instead an illness that is primary (addiction is diagnosable with its own criteria, as opposed to being a secondary and maladaptive response to another core diagnostic), progressive, chronic, fatal and treatable.


Co-Occurring Disorders

Co-Occurring disorders include diagnosable mental health illnesses that accompany a substance use disorder and contribute to the presenting problem. Typical co-occurring disorders include depression, anxiety and process addiction disorders such as gambling or eating disorders.



Trauma is a deeply distressing experience and\or emotional shock following a stressful event or a physical injury, which may be associated with physical shock and sometimes leads to long-term neurosis. Trauma survivors view and live in the world differently than others and as such, require that effective and helpful providers of care possess specialized sensitivities and knowledge in working with this special population. Magnolia Center embraces a trauma informed care approach through its diagnostics, staffing, cultural competency and specialized treatment tracks that work effectively with those who are recovering from the devastation of traumatic experiences.

Magnolia Center embraces a restorative and developmental model of recovery, in which every client, within his\her genuine ability, has the potential to overcome and adapt to bio-psycho-social-spiritual challenges and impairments. In recognition that the process of change typically evolves through predictable and defined stages, Magnolia Center recognizes and utilizes the Stages of Change Model (Prochaska et al), Motivational Interviewing techniques (William R. Miller and Stephen Rollnick) and the Developmental Model of Recovery (Terrence T Gorski-CENAPS Corporation). These approaches serve as a ‘roadmap’ to assess and develop motivational readiness and to enhance the quality of the therapeutic relationship. This philosophy is endorsed and applied under an evidenced-based and best practices model and involves the use of Motivational Interviewing, along with related diagnostics to assess the Client’s level of awareness of the presenting problem and to enhance a collaborative approach to engage in an effective and dignified, therapeutic relationship. Treatment Planning, along with group and individual therapy will incorporate the use of this model to match the Client with the most effective and efficient use of therapeutic resources.
