Our Approach

At Plahn Group we understand that behavioral health issues are complex and that each afflicted individual and their family has a unique set of circumstances. That is why we don’t solely address an afflicted individual's behavioral health issues, we also address every relevant, related issue that hinders the individual and their family. When the approach to recovery is equally focused on the afflicted individual and family, and the plan is comprehensive, lasting recovery becomes a reality.

The path from crisis to lasting recovery is daunting for most families – especially those that have long dealt with addiction, chronic behavioral health issues, and even failed treatment attempts. At Plahn Group, we take the guesswork out of where, when, and on what an individual and their family should focus, so their effort can instead be on healing and attaining lasting recovery.
