Our mission is to provide the highest quality of care for the alcohol and chemically dependent individuals along with their families. We are fully committed to treat our patients individually and provide professional care with well trained staff at all levels of residential care from detoxification though outpatient care. We are committed to exceeding the standards set by state licensing and national accreditation regulatory boards for residential treatment facilities.
It has been proven through extensive studies that a holistic treatment approach to treatment empowers an individual to recognize and accept his addiction more openly and successfully. Our goal is to establish for each patient a recovery program predicated on abstinence, and to make it absolutely clear that abstinence demands a commitment on his part. Honesty and inner discipline are the keys to success. We seek to inspire our patients to embrace that inner commitment; we want every abuser of drugs or alcohol who comes to Astoria Pointe to leave our center a strong, positive and renewed person.
Chemical dependency, alcoholism and drug addiction are diseases that touch the lives of all of us in one form or another. If anyone answers yes to any of the following questions, he or she may need help in battling addiction.
- Do you feel unsure about the nature of your addiction and are confused as to where to turn?
- Does your condition lead to despair, anxiety, depression, anger or thoughts of suicide?
- Do you feel you are too sick to make another move and simple tasks are too much for you?
- Do others express concern about your drug and alcohol use?
- Are you missing important commitments such as work or school or in relationships as the result of your alcohol or drug use?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, Astoria Pointe has a program for you, to help you in the recovery process and to achieve a full and productive life.
Not sure if you have a problem? We understand the nature of addiction; we know that the first step is often the hardest to take... asking for help.
The Founders of Astoria Pointe and The Rosebriar
The founders of Astoria Pointe are Bill & Ellie Dooner. They began with a vision of opening a recovery center in a location they love so dearly, Astoria, Oregon. Bill Dooner has over 50 years of continuous sobriety. His gifts as a businessman and his unwavering belief in the Twelve Step Program led to the opening of our treatment programs.
Bill's fascinating and most remarkable story is featured second in the book 1000 Years of Sobriety: 20 People x 50 Years, by William G. Borchert published by Hazelden.
Getting sober was the beginning of a great journey for Bill Dooner; a new life free from debilitating drugs and alcohol. He wished to pass along this way to a 'life second to none' with opening Astoria Pointe and The Rosebriar. Astoria Pointe and The Rosebriar are here for all, who, like Bill D., got tired of the darkness and had the initiative to reach for a star.
