Extra Mile Recovery for Men Philosophy

The Extra Mile is a place of new beginnings for those suffering from the disease of alcoholism and addiction. Tucked away in the beautiful landscape of the Natchez Trace, our center provides a serene environment which allows our residents to focus on themselves and begin healing. Through a combination of intensive clinical therapy and 12 step immersion, a solution is given and a new model for living is developed. Our patients will graduate with a firm understanding of their disease and a method to find complete freedom from it. The families of our patients will also learn tools to create a healthy dynamic with their loved one. Our team members are not only the highest caliber professionals, but have recovered from their own battles with addiction. This is of the utmost importance to relaying this solution, as we have been where our patients are. This uniquely qualifies us to treat this disease! Our goal is to send our people out into the communities, not only to stay sober themselves, but to be able to provide these tools to others. Our graduates will truly know what it means to go The Extra Mile for their recovery!

ABOUT THE EXTRA MILE SOBER LIVING- MANTACHIE, MS

The Extra Mile Sober Living, located in Mantachie, Miss., offers long-term residential treatment and sober living to adult men in recovery from substance abuse. The goal of the facility is to help clients increase their personal skills in honesty, accountability, employment, social interaction, self-esteem, and achievement. All residents of the facility must have successfully completed primary residential treatment before moving in.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The facility’s treatment program follows the 12-Steps and clients regularly attend Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings. Treatment is divided into three phases- Phase one for the first 30 days, Phase two from months two through five, and Phase three from 6 months on. All clients of the program must commit to staying for a minimum of six months and may stay as long as two years.

During phase one, clients attend four to five AA or NA meetings per week, obtain an AA/NA sponsor, participate in group and individual therapy, and look for employment. In phase two, clients continue to work through the 12-steps and start employment once they secure a job. During this phase clients also form short and long-term goals with their counselors, may mentor newcomers to the program, and continue participating in all components of the Extra Mile program. In phase three, clients continue to work through the same components of phase two.

Throughout treatment, clients will also receive individual counseling one time per week and attend an intensive group session once per week. Daily morning meditation groups are offered. Guest speakers and sober socials are planned. Clients also receive advice and guidance on individual health and wellness plans to foster healing of the mind, body, and spirit. Attendance at church on Sunday mornings is mandatory but clients may attend the church of their choice. Finally, clients receive regular, random drug and breath alcohol testing.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team includes certified an alcohol and drug counselor who is also the director and owner, a therapist, and a resident advisor who supervises and oversees the cabins and apartments. Resident advisors are clients who have at least one year of sobriety and they assist the director with daily supervision and accountability of residents.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The facility offers a total of 24 beds in rustic log cabins and apartments. Log cabins are two bedrooms, 1 bathroom units that house four individuals each. Apartments are either one or two bedrooms, one bathroom with two or four individuals in each.

Each unit includes a fully equipped kitchen and bedrooms with twin beds, linens, and closet space provided. Bathrooms are stocked with towels and other bath linens. All housing options have central heat and air conditioning and washers/dryers. Clients can enjoy TV with cable, comfortable living rooms with fireplaces, outside decks and patio sets, and views of the fishing pond.

REVIEWS

At the time of this writing, there has been one friend or family member polled by Rehabs.com. However, the individual did not answer any questions related to various metrics of the facility and simply commented, “Great program! Great staff!”

On the facility’s Google page, there is an overall rating of five out of five stars based on one total reviews[1]. The reviewer, however, did not leave any comments with his review. There are no additional third party reviews available at the time of this writing.

FINANCING

The cost of treatment at the facility is not published and is based on a sliding scale fee depending on the client’s personal and financial situation. The Extra Mile’s website indicates that there is an admission fee due at the start of the program that covers all expenses of the first 30 days. In the second month, clients should have secured employment with help from the facility which will cover additional expenses moving forward.

This treatment center is amazing! Everyone there cares about the patients like they are family. Attending this facility is like going on a retreat. The property is beautiful and full of positive vibes. All of the cabins have a "homey" feel and surround a beautiful pond with fish and ducks. I can't say enough about Extra Mile. If someone is in need, they will help you in whatever way possible! Relaxing positive atmosphere and incredible staff!! I do not know of any weaknesses except that they will need more counselors as more people use their facility. Right now they provide a great amount of attention to their current clients.

This treatment center is going to help a lot of me and save their life. Everyone there is dedicated to that. I am employed there and my oldest son is in treatment there and he is on fire for recovery. I knew exactly where to send my son because the clinical director there and the counselor there are top notch. I knew that they have love and compassion that would be able to reach my son.

Great program! Great staff!
