About  Us

Back2Basics Mission

Back2Basics is committed to the recovery of our residents through a series of concentrated hands-on therapy and life-skill building that is rooted by our unique programs, daily in-depth study of the 12-steps, and innovative and traditional therapeutic modalities.

Back2Basics is dedicated to providing personnel and professional expertise, along with the concrete recovery infrastructure, that is essential to the long-term transformation of our residents into a self-sustaining AND sober adult.

“The emphasis is not to simply avoid their addictions…
but rather it is to guide the men to learn how to enjoy life
without drugs and alcohol.”
– Grateful B2B Mom

One Outdoor Adventure Recovery Solution
Two Programs

Back2Basics and Beyond The Basics

Back2Basics is a six month adventure recovery program for young adult males, from 18-30, with substance abuse issues looking for a positive and meaningful life. In our program clients are exposed to a weekly combination of wilderness and residential programing that have proven to be successful in recovery.

Beyond the Basics is an additional 6-month transition program that follows the Back2Basics program and is focused on transitioning our clients into ‘real life’. In Beyond the Basics we provide for the groundwork to gradually transition our clients from rehabilitation and recovery into living real life with long-term sobriety.

While the programs are sequential, the Beyond the Basics program is not required and our Back2Basics client must apply and express the desire to really want to continue. This leads our client to take ownership of their decision and commit to their sobriety success. Most of our Back2Basics graduates choose to continue on to Beyond the Basics.

Long-Term Residential Recovery

Back2Basics offers an alternative approach to the 30-day treatment options that other centers emphasize. These 30-day programs often do not succeed in producing long-lasting sobriety in their graduates.

Back2Basics’ approach involves a six-month residential environment that provides the opportunity for participants to engage in real life safe and sober activities. Studies suggest that the longer the alcoholic or addict is removed from distracting surroundings, the longer they will stay sober and helps better guarantee recovery success.

Research indicates that most addicted individuals need at least three months in treatment to significantly reduce or stop their drug use and that the best outcomes occur with longer durations of treatment.

Our initial 6-month Back2Basics program is then followed by Beyond the Basics, our 6-month transitional program to help residents gradually get into ‘real life’. These back to back 6-month programs combined have a higher success rate for long-term sobriety.
