Tharagay Manor Services

Tharagay Manor

Tharagay Addiction Services had its beginnings in 1995. With 20 years of experience, Tharagay Manor offers affordable treatment of a superior quality. We treat alcoholism and drug addiction, and are experienced in the management of process addictions, including gambling addiction, eating disorders and sex addiction. The aim is for clients to learn how to achieve an optimal measure of health, joy and meaning in all the vital areas of their lives (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and environmental).

Tharagay Manor’s treatment approach is grounded in the Minnesota model. To achieve the goal of abstinence and improved quality of life, the principles of the 12 Step philosophies are applied. Within this context and based on a thorough and on-going assessment of a client’s unique needs, a multimodal treatment plan is devised to ensure that all relevant issues are addressed. A multidisciplinary team of professionals contribute to each client’s individualized treatment throughout the process. The desired outcome is not merely for individuals to attain sobriety, but for them to develop a balanced and healthy recovery lifestyle such that they become capable of achieving their full potential as human beings. Tharagay Manor provides a supportive and compassionate environment in which residents can begin this journey.
