What is Chrysalis? (Chris - ah - liss)


Chrysalis is a term you may have heard before in regards to the process of transformation by which a caterpillar turns into a butterfly...we believe all human change is much like this same transformation.  The word chrysalis actually refers to the safe and protected environment which is necessary for the change/transformation to occur.  We provide that safe space and counselors who assist clients through their transformation and changes. 

Why are we called "Recovery Center" ?         Our name does not mean that everyone needs to recover.  We are not bias is assuming everyone is addicted to drugs or alcohol.  Our name means that this is a place where recovery can, and does happen on a daily basis - and for those who need it, our goal is to provide it.  Since we have added the IDCMP - DWI program to our facility - we have become much more aware of the fact that a DWI is often a bad choice for some, while for others - their addiction is out of control.  For others, they find themselves in the middle.  Chrysalis Recovery Center offers to everyone a place to examine themselves and their current habits, and we offer the assistance to recover from unhealthy addictions, habits or even poor choices.  Everyone can benefit from speaking to counselors at Chrysalis!
