Recovering Champions Philosophy
Our mission is to help those who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction learn a new way of life, repair the past and continue the daily process of recovery into the future. Our proven approach to treatment takes into account each client’s background and specific needs. Unlike other facilities, we focus on more than just abstinence; we believe that a successful treatment plan must address the underlying spiritual, emotional and psychological causes of addiction. To this end, we take a holistic, integrated approach to the disease of addiction, by providing customized treatments that focus on the mind, body, and spirit simultaneously.
Areas of Specialization
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.
Animal therapy (also called animal-assisted therapy and pet therapy) supports recovery and emotional wellbeing by helping people develop relationships with animals. Animal therapy can be a one-time or ongoing experience.

Recovering Champions’ 12-step approach and great counseling gave my daughter hope for the future and freedom from addiction.- David I.
October 2nd I will be celebrating 1 year clean and sober. I have never had more than 5 months in my life. I was introduced to a new way of living while at Recovering Champions. The staff, the other clients and lessons taught, have helped me become the dignified woman I am today. I have a sponsor, a home-group and go to a meeting daily. I have a full-time job, I’m saving up for a car and hopefully returning to school to become a drug and alcohol counselor. I have repaired the relationships in my life that matter most.- Olivia P.
I’ve tried rehabs multiple times. A lot of places I’ve been I felt trapped. I didn’t feel trapped there. This facility was the first facility I didn’t want to leave. They don’t just push clients through and say good-bye. I’m still able to see them when needed. I can stop by whenever because the staff actually care about me. Having a good staff was the most important thing. They showed me how to have fun in recovery. Overall it was a great experience.- Anthony H.
The staff at Recovering Champions welcomed me with open arms and gave me another chance at life. I’m eternally grateful for the experience.- Eric S.
I liked the structure which Recovering Champions provided, and I learned a lot on how to stay sober. It was a life changing experience. I feel like a champion.- Dave S.
