We are all aware that one of the biggest obstacles to a successful recovery from alcohol or substance abuse is behavioral relapse. All the hard work of the rehabilitation facility, the doctors and staff, and the patients themselves can be very quickly undone when relapse occurs.
While a majority of patients do very well in a structured thirty day treatment program, an alarming number of them are unable to fully implement what they have learned when faced with the responsibilities, pressures, and temptations of “Real Life”. Many patients need to remain in a supportive and understanding environment beyond the usually recommended outpatient group or 12 step meetings before returning home to the stresses of career and family. Surf Therapy Recovery offers a residential program that is designed to help the patient ease into the process of re-establishing positive and emotionally healthy ties with loved ones and business associates. This transition reduces the likelihood of relapse.
