The Program

Recovery Ventures Corporation is long term residential treatment for alcohol and drug abuse/dependence.  The concept of combining a healthy, substance free environment, personal responsibilities and accountability, positive role models, emotional growth, community involvement, and aftercare, is proven to lead to opportunities to once again become healthy productive members of society.

Recovery is not easy.  Every clinical staff member working at our facility is in recovery.  We are all in this together and being in recovery ourselves we are able to understand the physical and emotional aspects of addiction and know what it takes to stay clean and sober.  We know that "The only way to stay in recovery is by helping others to recover."

The Recovery Ventures program is not easy.  Nothing in our paperwork should give the impression that this is a rest and relaxation retreat.  Recovery Ventures is a highly structured, supervised, and more often than not, a very demanding program.

Responsibility, proper conduct, ethical behavior, accountability and safety in the community are some of the aspects of our program. We are a diverse population, being of all races, genders, beliefs, origins, economic and social statuses.  Recovery Ventures, like addiction, discriminates against no one. However, there are rules and regulations that need to be strictly adhered to by our associates at all times. Violations of established policies and procedures will result in accountability. It is not acceptable for any associate to feel unsafe.

All work and no play is not a formula that works for those of us in recovery. Although we are all required to work, and at times we work long and hard, we know the importance of leisure time activities. We value opportunities to enjoy various events on a regular basis. Some of these are made available to us through agencies that support our efforts in recovery. Associates earn privileges according to their progress in achieving program objectives toward recovery. Earning privileges involves dealing with emotional issues, acceptance of responsibilities, decision-making abilities and length of time in the program. 

Rebuilding relationships with children and family is a very important part of recovery. Most of our most significant relationships were damaged while in active addiction. Family issues can be improved with time, patience, and proof that we are making progress toward changing our behaviors. Our program takes a proactive role in reestablishing relationships through individual and group therapy sessions, as well as scheduled events that welcome families to visit our facilities and participate in our activities.

Service to the community is an important aspect of the Recovery Ventures program. Throughout the year, we volunteer our services to various different local and international organizations as a form of personal restitution for past behaviors.

Program Phases

The Recovery Ventures program is comprised of 5 phases, where privileges are earned as associates progress through each phase. With these privileges comes more responsibility to help others in the community, and help run the facilities as well.

       
  • Transition: 

    The transition phase is the first phase of our program and usually lasts between 45 to 60 days. During this phase, you become familiar with your surroundings and the structure of the program. You also learn the rules, policies, and procedures of our program.

  • Acclimation:

    Following the transition phase, you are beginning to understand the program and the direction you are headed in your personal recovery. During this phase, you receive a larger role in personal responsibility and accountability. You have the opportunity to earn privileges, with a more active role in assisting newer residents. An initial treatment plan is established based on your input and issues that have surfaced.

  • Leadership:

    The leadership phase is the first major step up in the program, typically this lasts about six months. You should know the guidelines of the program at this stage and accept more responsibility for the proper guidance and development of newer residents, as well as take on active roles in house responsibilities. During this phase, you will work extensively on your personal issues and develop the skills you need to deal with them.

  • Enrichment:

    Your personal development of responsibilities and accountability continues in the enrichment phase.  This phase also lasts about 6 months.  This is a significant stage of development where supervision, counseling, and guidance are performed on an as needed basis.  Your treatment plans are revised to include individual interests, as well as career and educational goals.

  • Internship:

    The last phase is aftercare.  In this phase, associates begin to transition back into society as productive citizens by securing gainful employment of their own while maintaining interaction with the core of the program.  The transitional housing structure is less demanding and restrictive than the primary care facilities, but is the most valuable for sustainable recovery after graduation.

Program Cost

Substance abuse treatment costs money, and unfortunately, the majority of us who need treatment have little or no money, no insurance, and in most cases, no one that is willing to help with the financial burdens of long-term substance abuse treatment. As stated earlier, you earn what you get at Recovery Ventures. Everything that you need will be provided for you through our organization. Recovery Ventures is a self-supporting, 501c(3) charitable organization as defined by the United States Internal Revenue Service.  While the majority of our daily operational and administrative expenses are paid through the work all associates perform for our contract employers, any additional needs are met through tax deductible donations that we receive.

Recovery Ventures Corporation is entirely self-supporting.  By this we mean that it is the responsibility of every associate to contribute to the daily operation and the generation of operational income that puts the food on our tables, the clothes on our backs, the electricity, water and heat in our facilities, and keeps our doors open for others seeking recovery and a better way of life. In the "real world" each day involves getting out of bed, fixing meals, going to work, keeping the house clean, taking care of the younger ones (new associates), washing dishes, cutting the grass, meeting with friends, paying the bills, doing the homework and leisure activities. In the Recovery Ventures "World", it works very much the same way with each individual paying his/her part to make it work.

Our program takes a proactive role in reestablishing relationships through individual and group therapy sessions, as well as scheduled events that welcome families to visit our facilities and observe our activities.

Service to the community is a major aspect of the Recovery Ventures program. We volunteer our services to organizations established for the benefit of our fellow man as a form of personal restitution for past behaviors.
