Good relapse prevention program (out of the Staying Sober book- a must read for relapse prone clients and their families), nexalin therapy, sand tray, psychodynamic therapy, trauma resolution, comprehensive personality test results based on Myers-Briggs (amazing; I found out a lot about my strengths and weaknesses), always see the people in charge and talk to them face to face, very accomodating, comfortable enviornment, incredible staff (most in recovery and they always look like theyre having fun and enjoying life- Ryan, Brad, Tania, Kim, Marty, Jodi), balanced groups, variety of different meetings, they respect couples (I was here with my boyfriend and it was really cool), you can ask for the food you like to be ordered (Shalese, the woman behind the nutrition groups, works with you), vitamin drip (tells you what vitamins youre deficient in through a blood test and supplies them to you via IV), pet friendly, comfortable detox (the detox is a house, not a center), soft blankets, hulu/netflix. Staff can get a little busy (you get at least 1 one-on-ones a week) Every single one of the staff are amazing and inspirational. A lot of them are in recovery and they make recovery look and feel fun. They offer things like nexalin therapy (rare), which reduced my depression and negative outlook on life. They also do psychodynamic therapy, which includes sand tray therapy - recreating your views of life with thousands of figures, signs and emblems over a sand tray and processing what comes up. These are things most other treatments dont have. The owners keep the house cohesive and very positive and I saw the people in charge all the time. They dont take bullshit or fighting. They take recovery very serious. They strongly recommend a 12 step program. They don't push any beliefs on you, however, as it is up to you to discover what truly works for you. For example, we went to a buddhist recovery (refuge recovery) and it was such an awesome experience. I'd never been to one. A mentor/sponsor is, for the most part, required. It was really inspiring and cool to see everyones sponsor come over and work with them. They also have a great panel that comes in on the third and fourth wednesday every month. The people who run the panel are service-oriented and I've seen them sit with clients for hours. They are some good people with a good message. They helped me find my woman sponsor and it was a great fit. While I was at this place our weekend outings consisted of things like roller skating, bowling, going to the beach (such a serene beach with a good vibe) and going to an NA convention. Theyll take your input too. This place genuinely cares about you and thats really rare. If you go here take advantage of everything they have to offer. If you want to do more work than the groups give you, they give you more material. They helped me work on my codependency (which I found out is rooted in shame). Theres a lot to do here, you just have to build your motivation and be patient with yourself! We dont get better in one day.
