About Little Creek Recovery

I started LCL in 2007 because of an absolute need for a better extended care program. In the 1990s and early 2000s there were flop houses, sober houses and half way houses that didn’t offer quality care, “we were sending patients to flop houses and they were just relapsing all over the place”. A completely new wave of young adults had emerged from the opiate epidemic.  Treatment needed to evolve, and necessity was the mother of invention.By 2004 it was pretty well known in our industry out West that extended care produced quite a different result in longer-term recovery. This trend slowly moved east. In 2007 we opened Little Creek. A movement in young adult recovery began to really gain momentum and the timing for our program was perfect. The conditions were right due to an epidemic of opiate, benzos and research drugs in the young adult population of America. The United States consumes 80 % of the world’s pain medication; we have an appetite for numbness.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Found Myself

When I entered little creek, I had forgotten who I was. I was weak physically and void of all spirituality. I forgot the importance of relationships and frankly didn’t even know how to be in one anymore. With After 90 days, I was confused in a good way. I met many people in AA. The staff at little creek were caring and kind. They know what it takes to stay sober and they know what it means to completely change your personality and become the best version of yourself. There was a lot of work to do after discharge and the road isn’t easy. Little creek changed my life and gave me hope, and strength. The program is excellent. If you go there to change, it will be the best decision of your life. In a small place, where many people are uncomfortable, little creek will make you feel like family by the time you leave, and you will crave sobriety as a lifestyle. As you experienced there.


Surpassed Expectations

If I could leave more stars, I would. Little Creek surpassed my every expectation. The clinical staff is top-notch and effective. They involved family in the process and navigated the challenges with grace and skill. The building and grounds are gorgeous and therapeutic. Their approach of integrating confidence-building activities into the process was, I think, key to my son's appreciation of the program. This is the place where he made the decision to live a life in recovery and I could not be more appreciative of the care, communication and skill I found here every step of the way.



Little Creek saved my son when he was just 18. So many caring people believed in him and showed him there was life beyond drugs. He is 6 years sober and just graduated from college. So grateful.
