From our experience, recovery from addictive substances for those who have been unable to stop their drug or alcohol use for any significant period, which is the type of client we treat, will most likely take up to 1 year of highly supervised consistently accountable care. Our adult men clients typically come to us after years of trying to get sober and often, after having attended a multitude of previous drug rehabilitation treatment centers without success.
Spirit Mountain Awakens™ Extended Care (SMA-EC) is a Mindfulness-Based Program of Extended In-Residence Care for Substance Use and Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders for adult men who have completed their first 20-45 days in primary addiction care at Spirit Mountain Recovery or any other treatment center. This Program provides highly accountable continued treatment for up to as long as 1 year in 30-day increments for as long as practical.
The SMA-EC Program’s treatment residence is located out in nature in the mountains of Utah. The program provides highly accountable care so greatly needed in being able to maintain sobriety in early recovery.
In-residence care is best environment for learning the tools of sustained recovery. Statistics have shown that at 1 year of sustained sobriety relapse rate for those who have struggled with substance addiction so very dramatically improves for clients. Even at this point, as the medical profession would say, they are not cured, but through daily attention to their condition, their addictive behaviors and the associated cravings and obsession they had previously experienced with their drug of choice, have been considerably abated, if not altogether gone.
Cost of the Program
The Spirit Mountain Awakens™ Extended Care for Residential and Intensive Outpatient are cash-based programs of care that accommodate a continuation of insurance coverage for as long as authorizations are given. All clients are provided Room and Board along with all the other costs of their care, the exception being medications and personal incidental costs. Out of town clients are picked up at the Salt Lake City Airport and transport to the Spirit Mountain Awakens™ residential facility in Eden, Utah.
Program Services and Schedule
The SMA-EC Programs include medication management, evidence-based clinical therapy and a variety of educational and experiential recovery regimens conducted principally in the great outdoors.
A typical Monthly Schedule starts with the first week each month in residence at a Spirit Mountain Awakens™ residence in Utah then followed by 2 weeks of further hosted activities in the great outdoors of Utah and Montana in the Spring and Summer or Arizona in the winter. The final week of each month is spent back in residence in Utah.
The Spirit Mountain Awakens™ Extended Care Programs then repeat the above process on a month-to-month basis thereafter for as long as is practical. New clients will be able to join at any time during the month by assimilating them into the program at whatever phase is currently in process.
