Recovery Program

Rising Peak Academy is based on a 12 Step Model of Recovery with the addition of social connection and the development of resilience through peer-based accountability. Research and our vast experience indicate that the group milieu, participation in family therapy, individual therapy, and 12 Step immersion is the treatment of choice for dealing with substance use and co-occurring disorders. Each client is assessed on an individual basis, which correlates with the treatment process and length of stay. Our clients are given the best opportunity to maintain long-term sobriety.

Our recovery team has over 100+ combined years working in the substance use disorder treatment industry, at all ASAM recognized levels of care.
