What is your success rate?
At Back2Basics we prefer to be transparent about our program and our success rate. When it comes to addiction, success is not measured based on attending and completing a program within a specific time frame, but rather living your life sober-free long after you attend any program. At Back2Basics, our program is based on working with clients in a residential environment and on an individual basis while utilizing therapeutic counseling combined with outdoor adventure therapy as the foundation for on-going change and stepping them through recovery phases to find balance so they can gradually get back into ‘real life’.
Our success rate is measured in the countless testimonials from our clients and their families that continue to come in even years after attending Back2Basics. (See Testimonials)
What is the average length of stay?
Our Back2Basics program offers up to a 6-month addiction treatment program followed by Beyond the Basics which is another 6 month addiction treatment program focused on transitioning our clients into ‘real life’. These two sequential programs 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.
