After his own battle with depression, anxiety, and addiction, Drew set out to establish a treatment facility in College Station that provided excellent medical, clinical, spiritual, and operational care.
“Most treatment centers are designed to accomplish a monumental task in a short amount of time, but they are not designed to help clients re-awaken a positive vision of a new future for themselves, and then help them take the first step to get there.” Drew developed the concept of More Than Rehab out of the belief that providers have to go the extra mile for their clients to help them successfully integrate back into a healthy lifestyle and to improve treatment outcomes.
