At Towns Health Services, Mark Towns, MD, provides proven treatment services to adults of all ages who are living with alcohol and drug addictions. The primary clinic is in Galt, California, and the inpatient rehab center, Palm Tree Ranch, is located in Herald, California.
The practice’s integrative approach to recovery focuses on the behaviors associated with alcohol and drug use including attitudes, lifestyle, relapse prevention, and healthy coping skills. Each client’s goals, the frequency of their therapies, and the length of their treatment programs are tailored to their personal needs and their response to treatment.
Towns Health Services offers drug testing, drug and alcohol treatment services, educational services, and prevention services through an array of individual, group, and family sessions. Dr. Towns recognizes the importance of family members and loved ones being involved in clients’ recovery processes unless otherwise contraindicated.
The various programs include inpatient treatment, outpatient recovery, intensive outpatient treatment, after-care treatment, alumni support, and medication-assisted treatment.
Dr. Towns recognizes that life is often busy and unexpected, so the practice works with clients to schedule sessions that accommodate work hours, school needs, and parental duties. Additionally, telemedicine services are offered to assist clients who are unable to attend in-person appointments.

Every client at THS is treated with dignity and respect. We understand how much shame is attached to the disease of addiction, and how low self-esteem can sometimes plunge. Learning new information and skills to manage addiction is possible only in an atmosphere of safety; we work hard to create and maintain that for all clients during treatment.
