**ABOUT CHAMPIONS RECOVERY **

Serving Kings County in California’s San Joaquin Valley, Champions Recovery provides outpatient-based programs and operates multiple residential facilities for adults struggling with substance use disorders. The non-profit agency follows California state trends in which, of 1,430 treatment facilities, 76.9% offer trauma-informed treatment and 51.6% provide dual diagnosis treatment. Culturally-informed practices are a facility priority. Most programming is offered in Spanish, a service offered in 45% of California facilities.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Just as cultural responsiveness is a top value, according to the Champions Recovery website, the agency also prioritizes family integration and a continuum of services, ranging from prevention and outreach to sober living housing. Applying a mix of modalities, treatment is evidence-based and tailored for different client groups.

Champions Recovery offers both standard outpatient and an intensive outpatient program (IOP) . Clients can expect to receive case management, participate in drug screenings, and follow a Matrix Model of treatment. This integrative, positive behavior-reinforcement approach incorporates 12-step principles with education and various focused-groups. Champions' IOP tracks include support for women with children and for adolescents and families, and its Wellness Center also addresses domestic violence through outpatient programming.

Among the Champions Recovery services offered in collaboration with the criminal justice system include more than a dozen specialized substance use evaluations and two day-reporting facilities.

Champions Recovery's gender-specific residential treatment centers focus on family unification, offering psychotherapy along with art and recreational therapy, health and wellness education, and vocational and continuing education support. A Kings County evaluation document reports that each treatment house includes one room set aside for non-medical detox. During residential treatment, clients also attend Alcoholics (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings regularly, and daily physical exercise is required.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

At the time of this writing, little information is provided by Champions Recovery regarding its treatment staff, beyond a statement that many have personal experience with the recovery process.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The Champions Recovery residences, set in Lemoore and Hanford, include Hannah’s House for women with children, Samuel’s House for men, as well as Rylie Brennan and Amanda’s sober living homes. According to a Kings County document, Hannah’s House has space for 20, including women living with children up to five years old. Per a 2015 local ABC affiliate story, Samuel’s House supports 49 residents. Amanda’s Home supports 15 women with children in transition, and Rylie Brennan’s has space for seven, as reported in a California state licensed facility directory.

Photographs of the residences depict comfortable, but simply furnished bedrooms and group spaces, computer workstations, open kitchens, and outdoor meeting areas, including a large vegetable garden at Samuel’s, and outdoor place space for children.

REVIEWS

Rehabs.com has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni, affiliated friends or family members, or staff. Reviews left on secondary review sites for various Champions Recovery facilities are split between highly favorable and highly critical. Four total reviewers on Yellowpages.com and CiteHealth cited unqualified staff and poorly applied practices[1] [2] such as drug testing.

By contrast, eight Google reviews for Hannah’s House specifically gave an average rating of 4.1 out of five stars, while 10 on the facility’s official Facebook page (which Champions staff may monitor) averaged 4.8 out of five.[3] [4] A majority of Facebook reviewers reported “getting their lives back.” They also tended to describe the program as difficult but effective and the staff as persistent. Other benefits shared included help reconnecting with children and developing healthy relationships.

FINANCING

Fees and financial arrangements for services vary by Champions Recovery program. The facility’s website notes that Medi-Cal is accepted for Kings County adults in outpatient treatment programs and that a sliding fee scale is applied. Sober living homes accept private pay or contract payments from referring parties. Residents must be employed and contribute $350 per month. Samuel’s and Hannah’s Houses are offered free to qualifying Kings County residents.

CONCLUSION

Champions Recovery, which began in 2000, was previously known as Champions Recovery Alternatives. Some of its facilities have opened as recently as 2015 and 2017, as reported in Hanford Sentinel stories.

The residences are supported in part by Adventist Health, which facilitates donations of furniture and other supplies, per a February 2018 Sentinel profile.
