Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve people's lives by helping them overcome addictions.


Bristlecone Family Resources is the oldest and largest addiction recovery treatment agency in northern Nevada. Bristlecone offers the most comprehensive addiction treatment and prevention services in northern Nevada.

Bristlecone customizes treatment plans, which then serve as a roadmap for clients in pursuit of a clean and healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families.

Bristlecone offers the full range of treatment and prevention services including detox, residential, transitional living, outpatient, aftercare, and community education and outreach. Our staff puts extra effort into making sure that clients have access to all of the resources available in our community. We don^t compete with other agencies but focus on partnering to be sure that our community^s addiction treatment and prevention needs are served.

Bristlecone bases its treatment planning on the National Institute of Drug Abuse's "13 Principles of Effective Treatment" www.nida.nih.gov . These principles require addressing any obstacles that clients face. Education, job training, child care, transportation, health care, job and life skills training are just a few of the needs we help clients address. Only by tackling a client^s needs head-on does the individual have a real shot at a successful recovery program.

Keeping up on the latest research and best practices is a primary focus for Bristlecone's expert staff. Counselors, advocates and other treatment staff regularly attend training and conferences to keep abreast of the latest research, and many of our staff are pursuing advanced degrees. Our treatment planning focuses on using Evidence Based Practices that have been demonstrated successful through research and clinical practice.
