Unparalleled Clinical Experience
Years of Proven Recovery
Justin and Robin Daniels have almost 20 years of experience operating dual diagnosis treatment programs. They founded Defining Wellness Centers near Jackson, Mississippi to offer a full continuum of care to those in need of mental health and addiction treatment services. Taking an innovative approach to treatment, the program and team focus on proven therapeutic methods and innovative techniques.
Rooted in Trauma-Informed Care
We understand that addiction is often a manifestation of underlying trauma and challenging life experiences. That’s why the goal for all our clients is not simply sobriety. Instead, we aim for a higher outcome: wellness and a sense of purpose. This begins with love and compassion, delivered by staff who have seen and, in many cases, recovered from addiction firsthand.
From there, we create a trauma-informed plan of care that emphasizes client wellness. We believe wellness is an active process of making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. That’s why we guide clients through a dynamic process of change and growth in order to define what works for their needs and the needs of their loved ones. This can include a variety of different methods—for some it’s a healthy diet and exercise, for others it’s engaging in ongoing therapy, and for someone else it may be creating art or meditating and practicing mindfulness. There is no one path to wellness—that journey is based on the client and their needs. We understand that the greatest wealth we have is our health. That’s why our programs assist clients in defining wellness for themselves so they can achieve their recovery goals.

Recovery & Southern Hospitality

The property is private and allows clients to truly focus on themselves and their healing process.
Every part of our program is designed to support rejuvenation, including a nutritious culinary experience, prepared by our gourmet chef and his skilled team.

There, we utilize biofeedback along with a variety of other biotechnology and Artificial Intelligence-enhanced programs to help clients better emotionally regulate. This helps support the evidence-based therapeutic treatment techniques clients receive as part of the Defining Wellness program.

Outside you’ll find volleyball courts, a pickleball court, and a putting green. Clients have access to a game room to engage with one another and learn how to have fun while sober. It’s amazing the outcomes that arise from having simple, silly fun without the aid of substances.
