Our Mission, Vision and Values

Our mission at ARC is to improve community health by providing accessible, effective assistance to those suffering from misuse of alcohol and other drugs.

Through our core values of quality, ethics, integrity and compassion, ARC aspires to a vision in which all persons afflicted with substance abuse, including their families, friends and larger community can be drug free and healthy.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy espouses that substance misuse is a condition that effects ones quality of life including the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being of the individual. Our belief is that if left untreated the condition is potentially progressive and can lead to an early death if there is no intervention and recovery process.
