Exceptional care, delivered in an exceptional way.

There are countless treatment programs out there, but there is only one you. One-size-fits-all treatment will never work because a true path away from addiction requires a very personalized and expert treatment approach that is absolutely relentless and catered around you. Your treatment should never be dictated by an insurance standard care policy. Instead, you need exceptional care, delivered in an exceptional way that will give you the absolute best chance for recovery. That’s the Enterhealth difference.

From the beginning, we have treated addiction for what it is, a chronic but treatable brain disease. Our entire team is comprised of board-certified addiction specialists who truly understand the complex nature of addiction. Our depth of knowledge and experience makes a world of difference in your care. Our evidence-based treatments and protocols are backed by research and expertly applied throughout our full continuum of care. Starting with comprehensive neurological and psychological assessments, through the creation of your personalized residential and outpatient treatment plans and at every single step of your journey, we are relentless in your recovery. We will never accept the status quo for addiction because your life depends on us thinking differently, caring without fail and raising the bar for better outcomes. We have always approached recovery differently, and our innovative approach is what makes us one of the most trusted names in addiction treatment.

Leading the way to better outcomes.

What began as a labor of love has turned into our unwavering commitment to help all our patients achieve sobriety. It’s not just our job, it’s our passion. From the top to the bottom, each and every member of our team is dedicated to one thing and one thing only, and that is you.

 

Mr. Kniffen co-founded Enterhealth with his son after witnessing the devastation of a family friend who lost loved ones to addiction.

He has more than 40 years of experience in business operations and management, as well as product development. Having started his career in sales, Mr. Kniffen understands how to grow companies organically. His leadership experience ranges from development to operations and financial management, for companies ranging in size from start-ups to multi-million dollar corporations.

After graduating from the University of North Texas and serving in the United States Marine Corps, Mr. Kniffen began his civilian career in the early years of Electronic Data Systems (EDS) serving as a corporate recruiter. From there, he joined the University Computing Company, working his way up to vice president of Field Operations, then joined Kaneb, where he served as group vice president responsible for three of its subsidiaries and a software development team.

Having established a solid background in software applications, Mr. Kniffen then began a joint venture, Core Data Products, with Core Laboratories. Core Data was his first entrepreneurial venture. The company started with a single idea – develop a software application that consolidated and optimized coring data for the oil and gas industry. Burlington Northern later acquired the company, then Mr. Kniffen joined Tres Computing Systems, a subsidiary of Control Data, where he served as president. In 1984, he founded Utility Resources, Inc., a developer and distributor of application software.

Mr. Kniffen then acquired Point Communications in 1995, and began rebuilding the company – which he still owns today – from the ground up. Point Communications is now known as The Point Group, one of the leading marketing communications firms in the southwest, and one of the very few that remains independently owned.
