Our mission at Recovery Centers of America (RCA) is to help 1 million patients enter a life of recovery by providing world-class neighborhood-based alcohol and drug addiction treatment. We believe that patients who get treated well—get well sooner and stay well longer. We treat the whole family in everything we do. Under our philosophy, we and the family are all in it together. Our team of experts guides the patient and family through treatment and lasting, meaningful recovery.

RCA envisioned neighborhood-based care where patients experienced evidence-based, compassionate, individualized treatment that was also affordable, family-centered, and covered by insurance. Recovery Centers of America started building the finest treatment centers in the world in major cities in the U.S.

“Patients suffering from addiction have a disease. They deserve to be treated with dignity,” explains JP Christen, one of RCA’s founders. “We feel strongly that patients shouldn’t have to secretly fly across the country to be treated, and they shouldn’t have to go broke getting help for their disease.”
