Sunrise House 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.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
- 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.
- Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
The lifestyle I was living just wasn’t working out for me anymore. I just knew that I deserved better. And I just didn’t want to die, because I’d lost probably seven people in the past… two years from the stuff that’s on the street right now. And I just didn’t want to be one of those statistics. Everyone’s here for the same thing, you know, everyone’s here trying to get well and trying to get better and turn their life around. I was just tired of being tired. I was ready to live life, not just be in it. It definitely is structured, I would say, but it’s good-- It keeps you out of your head, it keeps you busy. It’s very relaxing outside because you’re allowed to walk around the building and I remember a few of us would always just walk around and kind of stop at the top of the hill over there and just look out into the valley. It’s a very beautiful sight to see, I would say. It’s like a big family here… all the staff, they actually care about your wellbeing and they want to see you succeed in recovery and in here, which to me was huge to have that support from all the staff. Being comfortable in an uncomfortable situation is huge in recovery. God willing, I will never have to come back to a place like this, but if I did, I wouldn’t hesitate to come back because it’s more important to make it back than to be afraid or embarrassed to go back to a treatment facility.Alex, Sunrise House Alum
