A wonderful relaxing treatment center where adults are treated as adults. A compassionate and trained staff with a serene facility. It is has only 12 beds which makes for more one on one time. Sometimes clients that aren’t serious about recovery are not shown the door fast enough but that is in an attempt to help them find the way.
The setting is a home type setting which adolescents are more receptive to in treatment. There is a mixture of staff who are in recovery and those who have not personally dealt with addiction issues, so the perspectives of all staff make this a great place for adolescents. There is a lake, a weight room/gym, basketball, volleyball, equine roundpin (equine therapy in the near future to start), meals prepared by an executive chef which are decided upon by a registered dietitian, and the schedule is nicely put together. The boys have plenty of time for schoolwork, reading, leisure activities, and still maintain their program at Stonewater. It is a new facility so there are still changes being made to the employee schedule, policies, etc. but that is to be expected. Communication between staff needs to improve a great deal to help things flow easier from day to day. This is a great facility/program from what I know. The employees are truly dedicated to helping these boys get to a place in their life where the addiction is a memory rather than a struggle. The Nurses, Clinical Assistants, counselors/therapists, and everyone involved want the best for everyone who comes thru their doors. If we can positively affect the patient long term, then we have also positively affected the family and friends of that patient long term, and hopefully broken an unforgiving cycle of addiction
My significant other recently went through the 90 day program. He has been through many 30 day recovery programs and continued to relapse. The Extra Mile was able to give both him and our family insight, counseling and opportunity we have never experienced elsewhere. Through weekly sessions with Rod, we were able to work through some of our biggest issues in which we continue to practice the tools we were given. The Extra Mile had a great team that communicated with us on a regular basis and was open to all feedback. I highly recommend The Extra Mile to anyone looking for an elevated treatment plan that helps not only the addict but those closely involved in their life.
