Family ProgramResearch shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Equine TherapyA form of animal therapy, equine therapy involves visiting, working with and sometimes riding horses as a way to create a metaphoric relationship that leads to life-altering insights.
Meet the Staff
- Jamison Monroe, Jr.Founder / CEO“Jamison is the missing link that connects old school recovery to the future of successful adolescent treatment. His presence in the recovery landscape is paramount to the evolution of the industry and imperative for mental health and addiction to become de-stigmatized by popular culture.” - Leonard Buschell, founder of Writers In Treatment
- Jim MonroeCo-FounderJim knows all too well what parents are going through during this time period of finding and going through treatment. He has been down the road of admitting all of his children into a treatment center more than a few times. All three of his kids, two sons and a daughter, suffered with psychiatric, psychological, and substance abuse issues as teens and young adults. Symptoms ranged from trauma to attempted suicide, borderline personality disorder to bipolar disorder, anxiety to eating disorders, and from depression to alcohol and drug abuse. After many years of having his kids in and out of nationally recognized treatment centers that had been around for many years, Jim realized that these institutions closely resembled factory farms. There was little to no individualization in the treatment that his kids received compared to others going through the programs, despite the vast difference in their issues. While other areas of medicine provide “personalized health care”, a place did not exist that provided personalized health care for teens with mental health and/or substance abuse.
