Weekly  Schedule

Back2Basics Weekly Calendar

Below is an illustration of our Weekly Calendar for Back2Basics. It is important for our residents to learn to live a balanced life. Each week they are exposed to a combination of both wilderness outdoor and residential programming as demonstrated throughout the schedule.

The first part of the week, from Sunday to Tuesday mid-day is dedicated time to one of our outdoor adventure trips. From mid-day Tuesday through Saturday the schedule is balanced with therapy and counseling, education and life skills, culinary and nutrition, exercise and fitness as well as community and individual time.

Our Week In Review

Drug and Alcohol Testing

Back2Basics is committed to maintaining a safe and substance free environment for all residents. Drug testing is conducted 2-3 times per week through urinalysis (UA), by an independent lab, as one component of a continuum of services designed to assist our Residents through treatment. The urinalysis is a screening and evaluative test and is used to detect and assess a wide range of chemicals.
