Map of Facilities

Nationwide Network of Treatment Facilities

Sunspire Health is a nationwide network of addiction treatment facilities that offer personalized treatment plans for people of all walks of life, meeting them where they are at and guiding them through recovery.

Our facilities offer an array of addiction recovery services across the United States and are able to provide the full spectrum of care including detox, residential and outpatient treatment programs in settings that are designed to promote healing.

Sunspire began as a single treatment facility in Florida in 2011 and has expanded to become a comprehensive network of eight addiction treatment facilities located in Massachusetts, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, Illinois, Oregon and California. Our facilities are small in size with a maximum of 40 beds and a high staff-to-patient ratio, meaning that each person receives personalized, quality care no matter which Sunspire center they go to for treatment.

Leaders in the Field of Addiction Treatment

What distinguishes Sunspire Health facilities is that each one provides quality care for substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders from experts and specialists in the field of addiction medicine and mental health counseling. Our treatment teams utilize the latest advances in addiction medicine and draw on therapeutic modalities that are evidence-based, meaning that extensive studies and research prove that these methods are effective at treating addiction.

Every patient receiving care at a Sunspire Health facility will have a dedicated treatment team responsible for designing a personalized treatment and aftercare plan and tracking their progress in order to adapt that plan throughout the recovery process.
