One of the most critical measurements of treatment success begins the day individuals step foot out our doors and are faced with the question, “O.K. Now what?”.

Our life skill building is designed to help individuals discover their unique and purposeful place in the world. To this end, residents will be coached in life skills and the habituation of the lifelong pursuit of character development. Our holistic approach stresses green-minded, productive lifestyles and vocations in which the symbiotic relationship with the environment, the community and economic realities are practiced.

Back2Basics provides the support and guidance needed to avoid falling into the pitfalls of old habits and behaviors. We strive to equip our residents with the tools and purposeful goals necessary to carve out productive and satisfying lives in the world beyond our doors – a world in which success is measured in years and lifetimes of sobriety. The joy of witnessing long-term sobriety and highly functioning members of society is our greatest reward.
