Alpenglow Clinic uses a holistic approach to treat clients. They’ve seen a 30% increase of clients within the past three months, averaging 140 to 150 a month.

“A lot of the drug crisis is co-occurring, it’s a result of some deeper emotional trauma and issues that are underlying the surface, and then it just kind of manifests itself in drug use,” Alpenglow administrator Katheryn Kingery said.

Clients can come into the clinic, grab coffee, watch a movie and even sit in a massage chair.

The clinic is funded by private insurance, Medicaid and Medicare.

Alpenglow says dealing with mental health and their family atmosphere is what sets them apart from other facilities.

Client Brandon Abramovitz has been coming to the clinic for three weeks, and he says it’s helping him become a citizen again.

“I’ve made strides that I haven’t seen in years in my personal life. It’s really propelling me forward to getting me back to be a 50/50 dad to my daughter,” Abramovitz said.

Alpenglow says half of their clients are meth addicts, 30% are heroin addicts, and 20% are alcoholics.

The clinic also specializes in preventive care, and they hope to bring information to high schools.

“When people come in and learn what addiction is and where it starts, and all of a sudden they see ‘I have some of those tendencies,’ they can start avoiding the direction,” Kingery said.
