Believing individuals typically excel in a respectful, supportive environment, this program will contain more structure than others; providing 'students' with a sense of purpose and belonging they may have lost to their addiction. As students learn take responsibility for their actions, they will take on a larger role in the treatment process. Beginning with daily chores, students may eventually volunteer in the community, attend school, participate in transitional work programs, trek expeditions and life skills and management programs. Participation in programs such as those listed will encourage in the development and strengthening the physical, emotional and social muscles required for a healthier lifestyle.
Intense but nurturing sessions with certified therapists will identify and treat any underlying issues such as destructive behaviors, skills deficits, life management problems as well as other emotional or behavioral concerns. For a balance of mental and physical health and wellness, students will learn how to find and prepare delicious, nutritious holistic meals and participate in equine therapy. The increase in self-reliance, self-respect, confidence and patience will empower these students to know when they are ready for the transition home.
