From our experience, recovery from addictive substances for those who have been unable to stop their drug or alcohol use for any significant period typically takes up to 1 year of highly supervised consistently accountable care. This is ideally done Inpatient for as long as possible and then Outpatient.
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. Our Treatment Programs do change clients lives for the better regardless of degree.
Spirit Mountain’s Mindfulness-Based Program of Extended Care (SM-MBEC) for Substance Use and Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders is for adult men who have completed their first 20-45 days in primary addiction care at Spirit Mountain Recovery or any other substance use and mental health disorder treatment center.
The SM-MBEC Program provides highly accountable continued treatment for up to as long as 1 year in 30-day increments for as long as practical.
The SM-BMEC Program’s treatment residence is located out in nature in the mountains of Utah which is the preferred environment, but is also provided on an Outpatient basis as well from Spirit Mountain Behavioral Health office in Roy, Utah. The program provides highly accountable care so greatly needed in being able to maintain sobriety in early recovery.
Statistics indicate that after 1 year of sustained sobriety, the relapse rate for those who have struggled with severe opioid and alcohol addiction drops from 90% within the first year to 15%.
