Our Approach to Addiction Recovery and Mental Health

Chateau Recovery's approach to rehabilitation is entirely flexible, and never defined by traditional '12 Step' or pre-planned models.
Our recovery facility and treatment programs help you create a personalized path to a more fulfilling and independent lifestyle without substance abuse. World-class health care is provided by a team of dedicated specialists, and our rehab program provides one of the highest clinician-to-client ratios in the industry.
As far as we are concerned ... recovery is defined by support, freedom and empowerment and NEVER shame, labels and isolation. (This definition must also be understood by your support network to help you recover).
Chateau Recovery provides an environment of acceptance, commitment, perspective and collaboration to help those exhausted from the fight with addiction.
We don’t have a 'one method fits all' approach. Instead, we help you experience traditional and non-traditional methods of individual and group support. This allows you to create a personal path to health and recovery that you understand and fully believe in ...

Keep in mind ... true, lasting change does not simply occur by enrolling in treatment, learning a few new skills and being protected from relapse, triggering events or people. Lasting change happens when YOU truly believe in yourself and your future ...


Sometimes it's difficult to explain a situation to family & friends ...

If you've ever found yourself trying to convince everyone around you that you're NOT one-dimensional and DON'T have simple problems - then we fully understand. Your situation IS complex.

Substance abuse is sometimes an attempt to solve problems in one or more of these dimensions. Superficial labels and rigid diagnoses often ignore our humanity and instead create shame, reactivity and even exclusion. Your personal recovery requires flexibility and hope!

Understanding and treating every dimension of your experience with proper therapy, peer support, motivational interviewing, safe fun, adventure, healthy living and experiential learning helps you get “unstuck” ...

This holistic and proven recovery approach can provide you new perspectives and creative opportunities to help yourself. Here's our general recovery philosophy - (as reduced as possible):

Every human being is composed of multiple internal systems ...

Substance abuse and its lifestyle consequences affect most, if not all, of these systems. As a result, the process of recovery should include ALL of your internal systems, your influences and external environment.

Chateau Recovery has already helped hundreds of people to recover from unsustainable lifestyles. Our clients are unique, complex and in need of highly personalized treatment plans.


Creating and owning your new path forward is exciting and incredibly personal. It's a life changing process you must do yourself - but this does not mean you are alone or isolated.

Defining a successful system of self-management and balance requires perspective, encouragement, meditation and mental health.

We have designed a program that utilizes mindfulness, social support and proactive problem-solving discussions that bring people together for a common purpose: creating a meaningful life outside addiction.


Regardless of your previous treatment or recovery experience, our goal is to expose you to a wide range of support groups, mental health tools, art and music therapy, and other new perspectives, so you can make educated decisions about recovery and self-management.

The more you understand and believe in your news skills and direction, the easier it is to teach your family and friends about how they can support these new changes.

We do not believe you have to be perfect or an expert in recovery, but you need to become a leader in your new life.

Understanding your own internal system and knowing how to find support in your local community helps you create the map and direction to become that kind of a leader.


Healthy relationships, strong boundaries, social support and learning how to have sober fun, represent an exciting part of your future. You can learn how to minimize stress and relapse risk with peers who are looking for the same creative answers, through our life-changing group activities Prevent Relapse.

Group Therapy has long been considered one of the most powerful forms of treatment. Clients have the opportunity to participate in five, two-hour clinical-focused therapy groups weekly. They can also attend 5 one-hour recovery-focused groups.

Under the direction of a therapist, clients are able to address issues of emotion, cognition and behavior. Our clients’ experience and insight can provide resources to other group members who may be struggling.


Clinical and recovery-focused therapy groups will often revolve around specific issues. These groups are mostly therapist driven, dialectical and psycho-educational in nature.

Many themes of these groups include handling conflicts productively, mood management, self-efficacy, family issues, new coping skills, recreational therapy, relationship-building and daily life skills.

These presentations often focus on financial independence, personal organization, nutrition, and other relevant skills designed to encourage empowerment, personal health, long-term sobriety and independence.


At Chateau Recovery, we provide a program that supports recovery of the total individual; this includes physical, emotional and mental health.

Few people fully understand the significant role that diet and nutrition plays in addiction and recovery as well as other conditions that often accompany addiction like depression, anxiety, and ADHD.

Research confirms that when a traditional recovery program is combined with a complete diet and nutritional supplementation program, and exercise therapy, an individual in recovery has more than a three times greater likelihood of staying clean and sober then if they simply attended a typical recovery program. As such, an important part of our program is to restore the body’s physiology allowing it to repair from the strains of addiction.

We implement a nutrient-rich, whole food diet in combination with a supplementation program based on individual needs to support recovery.

In addition to 3 daily home-cooked meals prepared by our experienced chefs, the Chateau provides educational classes about the importance of nutrition and how diet affects emotional and mental health, including the biochemistry of the brain.
