Healthy Daily Living Skills

Residential program going back to the basics and practicing simple life skills.

Daily Living

Back2Basics has a beautiful campus home that is separate from our transitional program Beyond The Basics. We do integrate some activities with the Beyond the Basics group throughout the week (dinner, group discussions, etc.) to provide for mentoring opportunities as well as provide an opportunity for our B2B group to realize the continued progress of others walking in similar shoes as they ‘learn’ from the Beyond the Basics transition group. It can be done. The addiction and mental health treatment living within the Back2Basics program is a more structured environment to nurture our clients back to basic simple and real life.  (See our Weekly Schedule for more detail and take a Virtual Tour).

House Exterior

Monthly Family Weekend Workshop

Once a month, Back2Basics opens up their home to host a 3-day ‘Family Weekend Workshop’ where parents from across the country are invited to be part of their son’s recovery. The Family Workshop, held over a weekend, is a significant part of the B2B program and gives us the opportunity reconnect families and create a bridge into repairing and healing on both sides. This workshop is instrumental in creating awareness, allowing for safe constructive conversation and opportunity to share and strengthen family relationships. The family weekend also give parents an opportunity to be involved in the recovery process for their son.

The workshop commences with a social welcome with hors d’oeuvres, followed by tours of the campus and time for parents to spend with their son. Over the course of the weekend families will be introduced to day-to-day life at Back2Basics including outdoor adventures, therapy and educational classes.


As clients’ progress through the Back2Basics program, they are working towards learning how to get comfortable in their own sobriety. Once they complete the Back2Basics program they often seek to enter into our Beyond the Basics transition program where they continue to get more comfortable in their space and they gradually practice ‘real living’ in recovery. (See Beyond the Basics for more detail).
