About Us

SELF-RECOVERY LLC now has 4 locations in Alabama including Floyd Cherokee Medical Center in Centre, Greene County Hospital in Eutaw, L. V. Stabler Memorial Hospital in Greenville, and RMC Stringfellow Memorial Hospital in Anniston.

Self-Recovery was opened because we understand the struggle of addiction and the addict who still suffers. We, as the staff at Self-Recovery, believe that with proper treatment the disease of addiction can be placed in remission, allowing the individual to regain their self-respect, dignity and control of their life.

The Staff of Self-Recovery believes in treating each person as an individual, with dignity and respect. We understand that addiction is a life-threatening disease, and that if left untreated will result in death. We also understand that recovery is possible! We never give up hope for the patient, even when the patient themselves has exhausted all hope. We give each patient the necessary tools to succeed in their recovery. The greatest reward that we as a staff receive, is when we hear back from a patient who has completed the program and is living a sober life of recovery.
