About Saint Peters Addiction Recovery Center (SPARC)/Acute Care Unit

SPARC helps patients gain control of their lives and learn how to gain physical, emotional and spiritual well-being without dependency on alcohol or other chemical substances. We are mindful of the sensitivity and attention all persons require and deserve when seeking personal help with addiction.

Anyone aged 18 years or older, who is struggling with alcoholism or chemical dependency, may receive help at SPARC’s detox, inpatient and outpatient locations. Those younger than age 18 may access treatment at SPARC’s outpatient adolescent locations.
