Silver Sands Recovery 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
- Medical Detoxification
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
- Residential Treatment
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
- Equine Therapy
A form of animal therapy, equine therapy involves visiting, working with and sometimes riding horses as a way to create a metaphoric relationship that leads to life-altering insights.
I've been to multiple treatment centers, but Silver Sands has been the only place that has worked for me!Tim M
Finding Silver Sands has been a godsend and I'm deeply appreciative.Faith
Silver Sands staff have been the best people that has come our way on this journey in YEARS.Anonymous
The staff, therapists, and team are incredible at what they do. They take the time needed to get to know you and it makes a difference. I didn't even want to come, now I live here. Best place to get sober!JJ
Being able to speak with the owner multiple times and get answers on treatment and planning was something we never experienced anywhere else. They truly work with the family to get us all on the same page so our son could not manipulate us like they used to. It helped him stay in treatment and he would not be where he is today, sober.S.K.
I went to other treatment facilities and this by far was better than all of them. They have the best therapists and staff who help set up your life so you succeed when you leave. I consider them my family now.Anonymous
Silver Sands recovery made the difference for my 23 year son, an opioid addict who had tried several times unsuccessfully to stay sober in rehab and IOPs for a couple of years. Silver Sands provided the right atmosphere and the extended time which was crucial for my son to get and stay sober. Being away from the city and being immersed in the realness of the simple life of Prescott Arizona allowed him to re- experience what was important in life. It also facilitated healing from the trauma and grief he was trying to numb. The staff at Silver Sands truly cares about its clients and the clients feel it. I have extreme gratitude to Lisa, to her great staff and to the clients at Silver Sands who shared themselves and enabled my son to embrace life again drug-free and with gusto!

Rob Heinrich, LPC - Clinical Director
Dr. Ralph Luciani, D.O. - Medical Director
Dr. Luciani, a member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine and the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry states, "I consider myself an advocate of those suffering from the chronic, relapsing disease of Substance Abuse Disorder; a disease mostly misunderstood as a pure behavioral problem when in fact it is a disease of disrupted brain chemistry. Patients need the compassion, respect and treatment due anyone with a chronic disease. I am dedicated to this cause."
Lisa Waknin - CEO
CEO of Silver Sands Recovery, Lisa’s founding principal is to provide a superior foundation for Long Term Sobriety. As the parent of an addict, Lisa knows firsthand the devastation addiction has on all concerned. She works side by side families, helping them bring bottom up to the addict thereby getting them into treatment. Her many years of trying to help her own daughter (sober over two years) has led Lisa to immerse herself in the field of recovery. Teaming up with medical and clinical experts and adding in her own true experiences from running a successful $60M company to being the parent of an addict has given this program a unique perspective. Parents from clients are quoted, “Finally I have someone I can speak with that knows what I went through and knows what these kids need. She’s a voice of reason, has compassion and cares.” Lisa always makes herself available to families in need.
Brian McEnroe aka Bird - VP
If asked how Brian McEnroe got his nickname his answer is quite simply this, “I was as yellow as Big Bird when I got sober eight years ago.” Standing at 6’4″, Bird is the real deal. He knows how to get these kids sober and on a routine to stay that way. Partnering with Lisa, Bird brought his love of sports to Silver Sands Recovery and created a Sports Division that helps our clients just as much as the therapy does. Finding a healthy outlet with team sports such as basketball, baseball, volleyball, brings to the table another dimension in recovery that is needed just as much as any other aspect. Bird knows it takes massive action to get results. Meetings, therapy, clinical care, medical care, sports, work, sober fun, they are all important because when you leave here you need to know to put your sobriety first and to do everything it takes to make you stay that way.
