About the History of Santé Center
In early 1996, renowned therapists Deb Corley and Rip Corley, a brother and sister team, operated a poly-addiction treatment program in a psychiatric hospital in Dallas, Texas. As was fairly common in the 1990’s, the psychiatric hospital was sold, and Rip and Deb were faced with the challenge of new administrators who wanted to cut key, efficacious components of their program. They knew they did not want to continue to work for companies where all decisions were based on what was best for the company instead of what was best for the client. Being mavericks committed to delivering effective treatment, the idea hatched to open their own addiction treatment center full of all the possibilities of long-term recovery.
