Welcome to Searidge Alcohol Rehab, a world-renowned addiction treatment facility that helps individuals reclaim their lives.

Our Back Story

Our founder, Catherine Cosgrove, has over 35 years of experience in the addiction field. It was her experience working with inmates where she saw firsthand the shortcomings of the traditional 28-day rehab programs, and 12 step programs. 
These approaches based a persons recovery on a 28-day abstinence model, this was followed up with a 12-step program. 

Right away she would see from a cognitive therapy stand point that in the 12-step model people were not only asked to reinforce their failures they were also told they could not address and overcome the root causes of addiction, instead they were asked to admit that they were doomed to be failures. 

There had to be a better way to treat people. 

She believed that there was more to the story and that until the underlying issues were uncovered there would never truly be recovery, just an endless cycle of recovery and relapse.

There was a need for a program that included psychotherapy, alternative therapies, and pharmacotherapy to help individuals overcome addiction and co-occurring challenges. And because addiction takes such a strong toll on a person’s body, nutritional therapy and recovery would also feature in her model.  ]

She knew that for lasting sobriety there had to be an exit plan so an inclusive non-12-step aftercare program to support ongoing sobriety was developed.
