Treatment Center Philosophy

Steps Recovery Center believes in treating a person as a whole and identifying the underlying root causes that lead to addiction. We believe that if we focus on healing on the level of mind, body and spirit we can individualize a treatment plan accordingly. The path of each person to addiction is as unique as the person themself, so the treatment must be equally as unique. Our approach is to begin with detox and focus on getting any and all substances out of the body and stabilizing physically. Next, through numerous clinical and psychiatric assessments we evaluate and establish a treatment plan suited to personal, familial and medical needs. Our program encompasses medical, clinical and psychiatric practices with group and individual sessions. We offer and provide case management support with step down to our day treatment or outpatient programs with supportive, sober living housing as well.

Dr. Keep had to overcome grief induced medical issues as well as alcohol use while struggling to recover from the pain of his daughter’s death. Volunteer work as well as research, writing, and speaking on the medical ramifications of grief and loss, including adverse coping mechanisms such as substance abuse, were part of his recovery. He has spoken locally, nationally and soon internationally on the subject. It also led to working with alcoholics and addicts and becoming an Addiction Medicine specialist. He is board certified in Cardiology, a member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine and board eligible in Addiction Medicine. Sharing his experience, strength, and hope as well as training, medical knowledge, and research are part of his desire to “pay it forward” and help others to also recover from grief, loss, trauma and addiction.
