For the past fifty-three years, Spectrum has dedicated itself to providing effective addiction treatment. With a full-time staff of nearly 1,200 clinicians, physicians, nurses, caseworkers and other professionals, Spectrum’s mission is to assist all clients in achieving sobriety, sustaining recovery, and fulfilling personal goals in order that they may lead healthier, more productive lives.

Spectrum’s correctional treatment programs teach offenders effective, real-life ways to lead a pro-social, drug-free life and prepare for successful community living. Spectrum works in partnership with host institutions, correctional personnel and probation and parole authorities to prepare program participants for maintaining a lasting recovery, thus reducing the risk of relapse and recidivism over the long term. Our methods recognize and support the role and authority of the institution, and programming is designed to ensure a safe and secure environment at all times.

“The organization has a well-defined set of values, including compassion, service excellence, integrity, optimal care, creativity, positive workplace and fiscal responsibility, that is reiterated throughout all levels of programming.”

“I entered Spectrum’s detox at the lowest point in my life. While I was there, I took a tour of the residential program. I decided to try it because I did not want to go back to my old way of life. Now I’m in recovery, working and making plans for my future – something I never dreamed possible.”

“The Correctional Recovery Academy model provides a holistic approach to treating addictions and associated behaviors. All aspects of living without substances are addressed, practiced and modeled.”
