Many Pathways to Recovery
Each person in recovery has a unique story and each recovery pathway is highly personalized. Successful recovery plans are being based on the strengths, abilities, and resources of the person in recovery. At Healing Springs Ranch, we wholeheartedly believe individualizing services is one of the most important keys to sustaining recovery following treatment. We also know a majority of people in recovery use multiple tools and services; therefore, we believe it is our responsibility to provide clients exposure to a variety of pathways while they are in residential care.
Some of the support we offer to clients while in our care are:
- 12-Step mutual aid such as Alcoholics Anonymous
- non-12-step mutual aid such as SMART Recovery
- Programs based on faith, such as Celebrate Recovery; Bodywork, such as yoga and meditation; and supports using other therapies, such as art.
This approach is cutting edge and may not be seen in all treatment programs, but we know each person must find the pathway that is effective for recovery, therefore, we work to develop plans that will minimize the barriers.
The long-term success of exposing people to and developing plans that include many pathways to recovery is supported by a qualitative research study of people in recovery conducted by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), and Partners for Recovery.
