The lockdown of 12 step was a beneficial aspect of the facility. However, the counseling effectiveness was a downfall. I was older and determined to quit so it worked.

Areas of Focus
Adventure-Based Therapy in the Pacific Northwest

Given its located on in the Pacific northwest, right on the coast of the Columbia river and a stone’s throw from several nature reserves, Sunspire Health Astoria Pointe incorporates the pacifying, detoxifying qualities of nature through adventure-based therapy in the great outdoors like hiking to a local waterfall or doing groups on the beach in order to heal patients physically, mentally and spiritually.

Healing the Family System

At Sunspire Health Astoria Pointe staff understand that a major part of setting a patient up for a successful recovery is treating the family as well. If a patient completes treatment successfully but returns to a family system that is broken, it can undo all of the hard work that has been devoted to healing. The key at Astoria Pointe is to heal the family system to increase the patient’s chance of achieving long-term recovery.
