We believe a balance between psychotherapeutic clinical work and the 12-Step process represents the best path to recovery. Our clinicians are trained in both perspectives. They are well versed on how to introduce the 12-Step recovery and ways to incorporate it successfully. Our treatment philosophy and holistic approach are both structured within a catalytic environment to enable clients to understand, be open to and to engage in the 12-Step process.
Addiction is a chronic, neurobiological disease that affects the mind, body and spirit. Like other chronic diseases, it is a progressive illness; if left untreated, it can be fatal. But there is real hope for a new, more fulfilling life.
Successful recovery is a lifestyle. Our experience has shown that the 12-Step process plays a critical role in fulfilling client needs for a continuing community of support and a spiritual renewal. How one defines spirituality is unique to each individual, and our staff is dedicated to helping HeadWaters clients explore recovery from their personal spiritual perspective. We know that by connecting with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose, people in recovery are able to positively engage with and impact the lives of those around them. We have found that in combination with clinical treatment, the 12-Step philosophy is a vital part of permanent recovery.
