Merakey is committed to addressing the impact of addiction on the community, family, and individual. Merakey offers clients comprehensive clinical, evidence-based practice, and therapeutic programs which incorporate best-practice interventions using a multi-disciplinary team approach. While Merakey provides services to those who struggle with addictions, we recognize that frequently there are also overlapping mental health issues that need to be addressed. Effective treatment necessitates treating psychological problems such as anger, depression, anxiety, poor impulse control, and Attention Deficit Disorders concurrently with chemical abuse. As a treatment team, Merakey offers personalized support, treating each client with dignity and respect.
