Guardian Recovery
The Highest Ethical Standards

We know making the decision to send yourself or your loved one to a treatment center during one of the most vulnerable chapters of their lives is a careful decision — and it should be. This is why Guardian Recovery holds the highest ethical standards. We take the ethics of our business extremely seriously. Not only do we adhere strictly to the Code of Ethics laid forth by the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers, but we also abide by our own high standard of ethics as laid out by our founders. Guardian Recovery has always had an ethics-first approach. We will never compromise on our commitment to provide clients and their families the highest quality addiction treatment care available. Below is our list of company ethics.

The Guardian Recovery Code of Ethics

As compared with other treatment organizations, we have crafted some of the highest ethical standards in the industry. Here are our rules to live by.

Our Ethical Standards:

  • Marketing – At GRN, our marketing efforts highlight the programs and services we offer to prospective clients, families and health care professionals. We are not a brand that is motivated to sell. Rather, we want our programs and services to speak for themselves. GRN does not engage in any unethical, misleading or deceitful practices regarding marketing, advertising, public relations and promotional materials, nor do we advertise on fraudulent websites and online directories that serve as sources of misinformation.
  • Pricing – Pricing for our programs and services is comprehensive, and any additional fees are clearly explained in writing prior to service. There are no hidden fees GRN does not make or receive any financial compensation for client referrals, nor do we support any programs that encourage these practices.
  • Visiting– We encourage prospective clients, their families and referrers to visit GRN’s treatment centers and experience our community firsthand. Visiting us in person and interacting with our staff facilitates more accurate treatment decisions and patient referrals.
  • Discretion – We reserve the right to use discretion. GRN does not admit clients who are clinically unfit for our community of care. We will, however, refer clients and their families to other programs better suited to their needs.
  • Discharge – At GRN, we take great pride in having cultivated a treatment environment that harbors safety, comfort and community. The decision to discharge a client is a highly unusual circumstance, but one that will be made if deemed appropriate for the client and the treatment community.
  • Client Privacy – We take client privacy very seriously. We do not use images, videos or personal testimonials unless a former client has granted us their explicit consent.
  • Client Comfort First – We believe that the treatment environment and amenities are critical to a permanent recovery. Our treatment centers, common areas and bedrooms are cozy and comfortable; we offer gourmet kitchens fully stocked with healthy, fresh foods and a professional chef; we provide recreational amenities that get our clients out of the traditional clinical environment; and we always treat clients and their families with the utmost compassion and respect.

Clinically Sophisticated, Ethically Sound

To find a treatment center that truly advocates for you and your recovery, we encourage you to advocate for yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about a treatment center’s policies and accreditations, or to confirm your insurance coverage separately.

At Guardian Recovery our admissions process is simple and straightforward. First we conduct a brief pre-assessment to see what your needs are and if we can properly help. Next, we help you determine your coverage options. We offer a free, no obligation insurance benefit check to help you know exactly what the costs will be.For those not insured or underinsured, we also offer zero-interest financing plans and other self-pay or private pay options. Then, if it seems we are an option for you, we conduct a more in-depth clinical, emotional and psychological assessment over the phone so that we can begin preparing a customized treatment plan tailored to each individual. We believe every client should have and individualized treatment plan best suited to them.

If you’re not ready to start pursuing admission, but just have questions, we are here for you. We know how confusing, scary and daunting it can be to navigate the treatment system. We can help answer all you question. All of our admissions team members are either in recovery themselves, or have helped a love one through the process. You will find a compassionate ear on the other end of the line. Please don’t hesitate — contact us today.
