Integrative Therapy & Counseling
Back2Basics Outdoor Adventures uses individual therapy, group therapy, 12-step meetings and community service to promote a well rounded, sober lifestyle. Each individual and group session is led by a licensed therapist and clinically supervised master’s-level counselors. Residents will be led by the same therapist(s), throughout his entire stay at Back2Basics.

Back2Basics General Therapeutic Process
We often begin with a process inventory of the history of substance abuse, how the use has effected the individual and others, painful memories and the emotional imprints of guilt and shame. This initial “story telling” can take any where from a month to all the way through the entire stay. This process lends itself explore the possible underlying causes and conditions of substance abuse. We really encourage self-awareness of those aspects of personality that coexist with addiction.
All therapeutic work is Client Centered. These are possible techniques, interventions and tools a client at Back to Basics may develop:
- Mindfulness Training
- Communication and Problem solving skills
- Affirmative thinking
- Interactive feedback
- Exploration of emotions
- Interpersonal resolutions
- Cognitive reframing
- Exploration of coping patterns
- Supportive reflection
- Social skills building
- Promotion of healthy lifestyle
- Encouragement of healthy relationships
- Repairing family wounds
- Role playing
- Art and creative therapies
- Relaxation and breath techniques for emotional regulation
- Guided imagery for self calming
- Compassionate thinking to increase positive views towards self and others
Therapeutic work occurs in group settings with a team of passionate clinicians, as well as weekly individual sessions and as directed Family Therapy.
It is best to use the “power of the group” (group involvement) for interventions such as confrontation on specific individual issues, peer pressure, modeling by other members, and personal non-sexual connections. Group therapy is integral to the Back2Basics program.
Individual therapy sessions can be used to sort out issues within a trusted, non-threatening atmosphere. Individual therapy sessions can also be used to deal with very personal issues. Issues addressed during individual sessions are frequently taken to group, at the individuals discretion.
We are a self-pay sober living community. We do not offer insurance or financing. There are however various financing companies in the healthcare industry that will provide financial assistance. Back2Basics is not affiliated with any financial company, however we will be happy to share our resources and discuss these options with you privately.
Common topics would include: individual issues, sobriety, the 12 Steps, defenses, PAW (post acute withdrawal), prevention and signs of relapse, coping skills, spirituality, honesty, self-care and balance. The primary purpose of what we do at Back2Basics is to support a well-rounded, sober lifestyle including daily 12-step meetings and physical, emotional, and spiritual well being. This generally involves a major shift in attitude and lifestyle and requires considerable support by a 12 step community, sponsors, groups, and therapists.
Residents participate in community service activities as a method of therapy for recovery. Community service promotes social responsibility and assists in the progress of a sober lifestyle.
To support the recovery process and ensure the wellness of all the residents, Back2Basics administers frequent urine analyses. Relapse can often be part of recovery, however, continued relapse cannot be tolerated for that reason. Continued, health-driven sobriety of each resident is our primary goal.
Experience the change with therapy.
