The recovery journey, initiated in the Aquila supportive environment and services, builds individual confidence, hope and achievement. The journey includes: 

GUIDANCE AND COACHING.

The master’s level Aquila team engages each individual through careful listening as well as teaching. Individuals at each level of treatment to practice tools to face and build successful lives. 

CONNECTIONS AND RELATIONSHIPS.

Nature uses relationships to build meaningful lives. Addiction to substances destroys this instinct, forcing people into isolation. Isolation hurts! 

DISCIPLINE.

Misuse of mind altering chemicals challenges a person’s ability to make decisions and follow them. The return to normal discipline is not instant. It is an organic process that grows naturally under the guidance of appropriate counsel. 

TRANSFORMATION.

Early success in recovery often begins with overcoming fear. For instance, we choose to attend treatment in order to keep our jobs. In time, we learn to depend on spiritual as well as mental instincts to seek positive reasons for change. 

HOPE.

Lives of hope are not necessarily without surprises or difficulty. But with new tools to address life’s challenges, we learn that each trial makes us stronger, each “mess” opens new doors of joy and achievement.

 

MEDICINE.

New medicines provide dependable relief from the urge to use alcohol and other drugs. This relief provides the time for healing. Aquila provides therapy tracks that include medicines when appropriate.

FAMILY AND COMMUNITY SUPPORTS.

Extending and healing connections within family, work and community relationships enhances addiction health as well as paves a successful journey through life.
