Sunspire Health Recovery Road Philosophy
Our goal at Sunspire Health Recovery Road is to offer treatment for adult men suffering with substance use and co-occurring mental health or behavioral disorders. We provide the highest level of clinical care based on abstinence, evidence and holistic-based treatment methods, catering treatment plans to each individual according to their medical, psychological, and personal needs. We respect the spiritual or religious practices of patients as part of the recovery process and offer access to a vibrant and diverse local recovery community. Our team of Board Certified addiction treatment specialists have years of experience working to heal patients from all backgrounds and circumstances, providing them with the necessary tools to lead a successful life in recovery from addiction.
Areas of Specialization
Because Recovery Road is a male-only facility, the treatment is focused on the unique issues that face men in addiction and recovery. A gender-specific treatment facility can promote a safe environment for patients who may find it easier to open up to and bond with their peers who face similar struggles during addiction. Clinical staff is experienced in treating men and catering to their recovery requirements.
Internet and Gaming Addiction
Sunspire Health Recovery Road sees many patients with internet and video game addiction and is able to treat patients suffering with these co-occurring process disorders.
At Recovery Road, patients interested in incorporating religion and spirituality into their treatment will have the ability to receive specific counseling from a spiritual advisor. While the spiritual advisor is a Rabbi knowledgeable in Judaism, this does not limit him to these religious beliefs alone and any patient interested in delving into a more spiritual approach to treatment is welcome to do so!
At every Sunspire Health facility patients will receive treatment that is individualized to their unique needs and diverse lifestyles. Ongoing assessments allow the treatment to adapt and evolve as the patient progresses.
Sunspire Health utilizes evidence-based treatment methods, meaning that the treatment modalities and therapies are based on clinical evidence and proven success in guiding patients to heal and recover. Patients who would benefit from Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) will receive medications that are proven to aid patients in achieving sobriety.
In addition to individual and group therapies that are based in psychotherapy methods like CBT and DBT, patients will learn to apply new coping skills through experiential therapies like meditative hikes, yoga, fitness programs, nutrition education, and recreation activities that show patients how to find hope and how to prosper in recovery.
Throughout treatment, patients will work with a Discharge Planner and the clinical team to develop a comprehensive aftercare plan that will ensure a successful transition from residential treatment to a life in recovery. All patients who receive care at Sunspire Health will join our nationwide alumni network, giving them access to a support group after treatment.
Each patient will have a dedicated Family Therapist who will focus on issues related to the family, including them throughout the treatment process. In addition, each month there is a Family Weekend to educate the patient’s loved ones on the biology of addiction and their role in recovery.
I was looking for help with alcohol addiction and Recovery Road helped me with everything and anything I needed or asked. The best part was being a member of a community. I am leaving feeling better than ever as a better person. Recovery Road has great therapist and support system. I would definitely recommend them to anyone struggling with addiction.
I was battling alcoholism and tuned to AA for support. AA was encouraging and helpful, but in order to get what I needed out of it I had to find another solution. Recovery Road turned out to be the perfect pathway for me, and now I'm on a 90 in 90 days pathway where I can get the level of success I need to recover for as long as I want it.
I can't express into words how amazing this experience has been but I will do my best. My experience here at recovery road has been nothing short of excellent. As someone who has been to several different treatment centers on my journey to sobriety, I can say for certain that Recovery Road has impacted my life the most. For starters the BHT staff is phenomenal. I believe it's so important to have a BHT staff that is well qualified and trained because of the extended interaction they have with the clients. All BHT staff is reliable, trustworthy, approachable and engaging. I feel comfortable speaking with them in any capacity about anything and I know that I can rely on them to be there for me in even my most uncomfortable and trying times. The clients here are great and I feel as though I learn quite a bit from hearing their experiences. I've made some great friends that I hope will last a lifetime and I've met many people that I at least hope to stay in touch with. I believe recovery begins with the people you associate with and if that is the case then I'm amongst good company. The clinical staff here is second to none. I am aware that when it comes to running any business, especially a treatment center, there are a lot of moving parts. Recovery road understands this and does an amazing job delegating responsibilities and group content to the facilitators. Understanding your employees strengths and in what area they can benefit you most is tantamount in maximizing potential of any business; most importantly, one that focuses on mental health. I enjoy and benefit from the way the group content is distributed amongst the clinicians and they all complement each other so well. They have made every conceivable attempt to make everything here at Recovery Road manageable for me and have worked diligently to make a lot of things I never thought possible a reality. I have made a smooth transition from PHP to IOP and am now working a good job because of their support and unconditional, un-prejudicial, love and understanding. I will be forever indebted to them and feel as though I am a better man having met them.
