Addiction is a force that moves individuals away from their initial value systems and falsely convinces them that they have no choice in their life. While attending Lake Ariel Recovery Center, we work to reframe our clients’ mindsets and put the choice back in the hands of the individual. While most addiction treatment programs work to guide patients back to status quo, Sanctuary Health’s goal is to advance our client’s lives past the baseline and improve their existence by directly integrating recovery treatment with daily life improvements. Through our treatment, Lake Ariel Recovery Center seeks out where clients are discontent in their lives, which generally links to addictive tendencies. Once identified, we help our client’s improve aspects where they are struggling. Addiction destroys individual’s passion and commitment to life, our Everlasting Recovery program gives our clients their journeys and lives back. Everlasting Recovery provides patients the best opportunity to achieve sustainable recovery.
