“Where there’s life, there’s hope.” – Publius Terentius Afer & Stephen Hawking

Life Treatment Centers believes that “Where there’s life, there’s hope.” – Publius Terentius Afer and Stephen Hawking.

Life Treatment Centers (LTC) exists to treat the addictive illnesses of men and women in the State of Indiana, with particular emphasis on those who cannot afford quality treatment elsewhere. No one is refused treatment due to the ability to pay. A payment plan will be negotiated with each individual enrolled in any of LTC’s programs, suited to his/her needs and circumstances.

LTC treats addictive illnesses from a disease model. LTC shares with the persons served that they were born with this disease and may have it his/her entire life. LTC informs the persons served that there are things that he/she can do, to live a successful life without addiction. It is the responsibility of LTC to provide the persons served with the tools and teach them how to use them, but the level of success will be determined on how/if the person served uses the tools.

Some persons, for a variety of reasons and in a variety of circumstances, do choose to return to using an addictive (for them) substance. These individuals are discharged from the enrolled program(s) but every effort is made by the LTC staff to encourage return to the program at the level most appropriate for his/her condition. LTC acknowledges that there may be challenges in treating some individuals with addiction and believe that there is hope for all when it comes to recovery. It is the belief of LTC that there are no hopeless addicts, just those we haven’t yet figured out how to best help.

The primary principles on which our treatment and housing programs are based are the twelve steps of Alcoholic Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) but LTC does not represent itself as being linked to them in any organized way. LTC exposes persons served to these programs, require participation as part of the recovery plan and require that each person enrolled in any of the programs choose a sponsor from AA/NA.

LTC believes that it is important that the persons served and everyone involved in the recovery process are treated with respect and dignity. Thus, all employees, contractors, volunteers, and students will be responsible to abide by LTC’s code of ethics.

Persons who approach LTC for services come from diverse cultures, ethnicities, religious backgrounds, and socioeconomically backgrounds and experiences. It is the intent of LTC to make sure that each person served feels included in the environment and surroundings of all the programs and facilities. To that end, LTC makes every effort to be as reflective as possible of the diverse population of those we serve in decoration, staffing, food services, entertainment, and all other aspects of agency life.
