Treatment Philosophy: Centrec Care’s Philosophy is to render quality treatment with dignity and honor in a cost-contained, warm, and home-like setting in order to maximize comfort and facilitate optimum healing and recovery. Our philosophy is to render proactive treatment in a soothing, comforting and nurturing environment for effective healing of the body and mind. Our philosophy of treatment is based on total health, with integration of three components of health: Physical Psychological Emotional This is a body-mind concept. When a body is ill the mind is unwell, and when the mind is ill, the body is unwell. Such an approach not only heals the body and mind, but together brings an improved functioning heightened by better quality of life. To achieve this goal, Centrec’s multi-modal treatment team works in close collaboration with the patient’s primary care physician, as the case may warrant.

Dr. Mohammed A. Kabir, a distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, came to North America from England, where he had completed his residency. During his residency in 1960 he was placed in a setting where partial hospitalization was part of the treatment modality. He had additional exposure to this type of treatment, while practicing in Vancouver, Canada.
Subsequently, he moved to the United States of America, where he entered into private practice in Psychiatry. He soon found that neither one on one therapy nor hospitalization provided a comprehensive treatment to patients. He felt that the patient’s psycho-social environment at home and work, and their ability to cope with it, plays a significant role in the prolongation, exasperation and reoccurrence of the disease.
Therefore, a Partial Hospital program provides a patient with a living, learning situation, where they are able to learn behavioral health skills at the treatment facility and then apply these skills to their daily routine at home and work.
Such issues and conditions are not adequately addressed in a traditional treatment setting, such as a hospital.
In the Late 1970’s, Dr. Kabir proceeded to incorporate into his private practice, a mini program using the Partial Hospital concept. Eventually, Centrec Care Inc. (The Center for Treatment Rehabilitation, Education and Counseling) was founded in 1986.
That same year, Centrec Care Inc., received its JCAHO Accreditation and continues to maintain this recognition of superior quality.
Dr. M. A. Kabir’s extensive history of serving the public and continual evaluation of treatment outcome resulted in the creation of a highly successful and respected program titled “A Twelve Step Journey to Wellness”.
The program is currently available for use by professionals such as Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Counselors, Therapists and Educators.
