Care at Summit Estate begins with an assessment by their “highly qualified physician partners” to determine the proper treatment for each client’s needs. If needed, clients receive medically-assisted detoxification, which includes 24-hour monitoring.

In Summit Estate’s residential substance abuse program, clients participate in one-on-one therapy, group therapy, and optional 12-step meetings. Clients also have access to holistic therapies designed to complement their treatment program. This includes nutritional counseling, a personal trainer, and yoga instruction. The facility also offers reflexology, a method of treatment in which a specialist applies pressure to key areas of the body as a way to stimulate the healing process.

All treatment at Summit Estate is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which focuses on changing adverse thinking patterns.

  • Summit Estate Recovery Center helped me see that there was a way out of the insanity I was living. They opened my eyes to the endless possibilities of living a happy and sober life. I was lost and wanted a way out but every time that I tried the results never changed. I had forgotten what it felt like to be happy. In my addiction, everything got ripped right out of my hands. I lost everything that mattered to me and I did not know how to change it. I was in and out of jail, mental institutions and tried rehab a dozen times but couldn't find myself to want to stay sober. I even contemplated death because I just could face the reality of my disease.October 25, 2016 is the day that I arrived at Summit Estate, thinking that it was going to be like every other rehab I had gone to but my mind quickly changed when I walked through the door. Everyone was so welcoming and went out of there way to make me feel at home. I did not feel alone anymore. I was surrounded by staff who truly cared about my well being; the became family to me. I looked forward to going to groups and opening up with my clinical therapist, especially because they knew exactly what I had been going through and gave me assignments to make me stronger. Summit Estate taught me many different tools and techniques to help keep me sober, that I am still using today. I was very comfortable sharing during the groups; not once did I feel like I was being judged for my actions during my addiction. I am so grateful that I got to be a part of this recovery program, they saved my life.
