Frequently Asked Questions

  • What’s your philosophy?

    We believe in treating adults like adults. We are not authoritarians. We feel it’s ineffective to attempt to break someone down. Adults suffering with addiction typically beat themselves up enough on their own. The challenge is building them back up. Before we can begin to do this, there has to be a level of trust and rapport. If there’s an authoritative culture, we would not be able gain a trust that’s necessary to even begin the recovery process. Before we can ask for someone’s hand, we have to touch their heart.

  • Are you a 12 step facility?

    There’s no doubt that 12 step programs help millions. They’re wonderful.accordion programs, but they are not for everyone. We see different poeple recover different ways. We’re not a one size fits all type of facility. What works for one person may not work for the next. We essentially have to start from scratch with each person. Most importantly is that each guest have an active voice in whatever life philosophy they chose. Ultimately, they are the ones that will have to live with it. We need our guests help to assist them in finding their way. At the core of our facility is empowerment.

  • Do you accept Insurance?

    Yes. What matters most, above insurance, is finding a good fit. If someone is at a point in their lives where they are willing to allow us to help them, we’ll bend over backwards to make sure they have an opportunity.

  • What’s important to your staff? Are they licensed?

    Our Therapists, Counselors, Group Leaders and Facilitators are licensed in their own fields. Although it is necessary that considered staff have the proper accreditation, that alone will not qualify a candidate. It’s critical that they have a passion for helping others. If there’s any indication that this will be a “9-5” for someone, they would not be a good fit at The Recovery Team. That being said, most of our staff has been with us for years. We are not a mechanical program. We consider ourselves to be a creative program. We don’t have much time with our guests, the last thing we can afford is to remain “in the box”.
