Back 2 Basics is proud to announce their one year anniversary. In the past year, Back 2 Basics has treated nearly 20 people. For those who have completed the program, there has been a 100 percent success rate.
Back 2 Basics is a family operated, community supported, sober living environment for young adults ages 18 and up.
It begins with an intensive outdoor adventure program, followed by a structured curriculum in a peer driven, staff supported, stable home environment where residents focus on recovery from drug and/or alcohol abuse. The average length of stay is six months.
This program, located in Flagstaff, opened its doors in May of 2010. Roy Duprez, M.Ed., is the director of operations and has co-founded and developed various community programs.
The clinical director is Charles Horton, Ph.D. He specializes in therapeutic groups and individual therapy with a focus on substance abuse, familial difficulties, disabilities, and life threatening illness. Keelyn Riley, LPC, MSW, provides both individual and group therapy to the majority of the clients. Along with a clinical team, there is a residential team that focuses on the day-to-day living.
In addition to residential and group therapies, residents study and participate in the traditional 12-step program.
Back 2 Basics residents are responsible for preparing meals and gaining culinary art skills. Participants also do community service work at the
Flagstaff Community Garden, learning about horticulture and sustainable gardening, masonry and “green” construction.
Healthy and sober experiential activities include daily participation in Kung Fu, Qigong, Tai Chi and meditation. There is also equine assisted learning. Back 2 Basics outdoor adventure program includes white water rafting on the Colorado River and camping/hiking opportunities throughout the Grand Canyon, Mogollon Rim, Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona and San Francisco Peaks. During outdoor adventures, participants learn team building skills, group accountability and responsibility. FBN
