Chapter 5 Treatment Programs Reviews and Ratings Details
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
- Family Program
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

Peter Thomas - Executive Director
Peter graduated from Prescott College in 2011 where he studied Adventure Education, Counseling, and Human Development. Since graduating, Peter has worked in addiction treatment, focusing on the therapeutic use of outdoor education, and has had the opportunity to contract with and develop programming for multiple agencies. In addition to his professional experience, Peter has served on the Board of Directors for the Northern Arizona Recovery Association and the Veterans Action Leadership Project, a local to Prescott non-profit that uses outdoor recreation as a tool to aid veterans as they transition back to civilian life. Peter is currently pursuing a Masters in Social Work at the University of Southern California. His education, experience and drive for continual improvement have allowed Peter to push Chapter 5 forward through staff development, program enhancement and adoption of industry best practice. Peter has worked closely with local and state elected officials to raise awareness around addiction, and has assisted with development of regulatory oversight aimed at enhancing the quality and efficacy of the industry as a whole. As a member of the sober community, Peter understands the demoralization experienced by addicts and their families, and is delighted to be able to work with them as they strive to rebuild their lives.
