Back2Basics offers an alternative approach to traditional 30-day substance abuse treatment programs. Studies have shown that the longer an alcoholic or addict stays in residential treatment, the greater the odds for life-long sobriety. Back2Basics provides clients with a six-month inpatient experience designed to expose individuals to real life activities while undergoing treatment. Located in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona, the residential rehab also offers an outdoor adventure program designed to build valuable life skills, boost self-esteem, and show clients that a sober lifestyle can be rewarding and fun.
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
