Effective addiction treatment programs have one thing in common. We prepare clients not just for the here and now, but for life years and years after graduation.
Addiction treatment programs are meant to teach us how to lead healthy, sustainable, exciting lives without having to rely on drugs or alcohol, and they do so by providing us with tools and strategies that can apply to all types of situations we might face after graduation.
Leading an exciting and fulfilling life again doesn’t mean that we’ll never face difficulties again, or that our recovery journey will always be a basket of roses, so to speak. It does, however, mean that we’ll learn to begin accepting life on life’s terms, and enjoy ourselves in the process, no matter if times get hard.
Men who choose to recover through our programs at Tree House learn to view everyday as a unique challenge. With eight different treatment modalities, there’s always something different for us to learn from and grow through. Whether we’re conquering physical challenges like a spartan run, or mental challenges like writing or opening up to our one-on-one therapist, we learn to embrace the new and sometimes difficult, instead of attempting to shun or change it.
Another way we learn to lead an exciting life is by making the most of our environment and the resources we have at our disposal. As a facility in beautiful southern California, the beach is only moments away– so we use it. Kayaking, swimming, and beach hikes are all a regular part of our physical therapy here. Often times, we feel like we have to be in ideal surroundings or situations in order to have an exciting life. If we don’t, we may complain that there’s nothing to do, or that we’re bored. Treatment teaches us that where there’s a will, there’s a way. If we want to lead exciting lives, all it takes is making the most out of what we have.
Learning to lead exciting lives teaches us how to look for the silver lining in every cloud, and how to seek out adventure in even the most unlikely of places. When we start to get excited about healthy, mind and body stimulating activities, that’s when we truly start to grow!
