Specialization

  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • 12-Step
    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.

I can't speak for the males residence, however the women's residence is ran terribly. There are two female managers that were recently hired and my daughter was told to leave over false accusations. Both female managers are terrible example for the women attending the program attempting to get well. I regret sending my daughter there 100%, new managers are seriously required. This program did more harm than good to my daughters life and sobriety.

The Brook Retreat is the best long term, mens only facility in the world. Recommended stay is 6-9months, but they fly by while making lots of new friends. No narcotics of any kind are allowed during your stay and drug and alcohol testing is regular and mandatory. Most non-narcotic medications are allowed but ultimately they want to help you wean yourself off of certain medications. They use the AA method and a patient would be learning from the best teachers of what the Big Book of AA has to offer. They keep you busy but not overworked in any capacity and are open, honest, and helpful too all clients. The management all truly care about their residents and want everyone to get better. A beautiful house and grounds with lots of privacy just down the street form a shopping mall and restaurants for easy jobs when the time comes. Overall, I had one of the best experiences of my life in the 6 months I lived there.

I went to a program structured exactly like this. I have volunteered to speak and help at this program on several occasions. When a guest and although difficult and I did not understand the requirements and intensity of the program it all made sense in the end. I will be 5 years sober in a couple months due to this exact program. Guest may not know it but if they get the opportunity to attend this program they have truly hit the lottery in regards to an effective method in not only staying sober but turning their whole life around and opening up future possibilities that they have only dreamed of. The only catch is the Guest has to want to put 110% into this or it does not work. I know these men personally and they truley do care about every guest at this facility. Its not work its their life.

But that these people truly cared about my loved one but in fact ended up putting his life in jeopardy with their irresponsible decisions no excuses. If they truly cared about the addict as they say they do they would have made a more reasonable decision that didn\'t jeopardize someone\'s recovery.
