González Recovery Residences
1401 N. Picket St.
Alexandria, VA 22304
We here at Williamsburg Place and the William J. Farley Center have been privileged to
work with The González Recovery Residences for the past several years in meeting the needs
of a number of patients completing our treatment programs. As you know, we offer a
variety of programs and levels of care. The Farley Center has a specialized rehabilitation
program for chemically dependent professionals. We feel that The González Recovery
Residences offers the ideal setting for recovering professionals who need extended care
beyond the primary treatment experience in order to develop sober living skills and
relapse prevention strategies prior to returning to professional practice.
We also treat many patients with significant co-morbidity ("dual diagnosis").
The GRR program combines solid Twelve-Step principles, a thorough understanding of
relapse prevention and an appreciation of the needs of persons whose recovery from
addictive disease is complicated by psychiatric issues. Your staff is willing to work with
challenging individuals in a supportive, therapeutic environment and nonjudgmental
We look forward to a continuing positive working relationship with you and your
excellent staff. Please let us know if there is any additional ways we can be supportive to
the important work you are doing on behalf of persons recovering from alcoholism and
other drug addictions.

There are many metropolitan cities with drug rehab centers in them. Washington D.C. is surrounded by beautiful country side with many drug rehab centers in Virginia. Often times an executive or professional that has an addiction problem feels like he cannot leave his place of employment and wants to be able to commute to and from his rehab.
There are drug rehab centers in Virginia that can accommodate the professional individual with an individualized treatment plan. It is not only local professional people who look for drug rehab centers in Virginia but there are many people who want to be close to a big city because of the numerous AA and NA meetings that larger cities offer.
Many people love the changing of the seasons and Virginia offers all four seasons along with the proximity of a big metropolis. There are very good long term drug rehab centers in Virginia to choose from.
