What to Expect at Headwaters | Alumnus, Joe. H

Jun 15, 2020

Having experienced the Headwaters Program firsthand to begin my recovery from alcohol addiction approximately three years ago, I am happy to write about my time spent in treatment so that other potential participants have a reference for what to expect.

Headwaters is not a standard rehab program.

It is designed for people who need to maintain communication with outside contacts, such as business associates, while still focusing on their individual recovery needs. I found it to be very effective in achieving the needed balance to meet this objective. The program and schedule while in residence are crafted to deal with the individual’s complete needs, not simply on the addiction recovery piece. It includes an individual therapist, group therapy sessions, mental health work, physical health work such as exercise, yoga, massage therapy, medication management, and proper nutrition.

The food is excellent.

Breakfast and lunch are provided daily in the cafeteria, with each meal having a variety of freshly prepared selections. For example, each day, there is an offering of a hot entree, a selection of sandwiches, or a salad bar with soup or any combination of the above. There is also a selection of fresh fruit and a full array of desserts, including soft ice cream. Dinner for Headwaters residents is served separately in the private dining area, with a choice of entrees provided to you each morning.

Each room is a private living quarter, including a separate bathroom/shower and enough space for reading, working, or watching television.

The common area/lounge has television, a patio with couches, a kitchen area with a coffee station, and a refrigerator filled with snacks and drinks available 24 hours a day.

The professional staff is very highly qualified, with expertise in the addiction field.

The administrative and support personnel are also well qualified, and the full complement of employees are discreet and focused on providing the patients with the services needed to achieve sobriety and recovery. To the extent possible, I would say that my experience in rehab was actually quite pleasant, while being very efficient and pointed at the same time.

In closing, I would simply say that I believe Headwaters at Origins to be an excellent program for highly motivated professionals or individuals with flexible needs who want to achieve a successful rehabilitation from addiction in a balanced fashion.
