Our Treatment Process
Healing Minds, Bodies, and Souls
The Sand Island Treatment Center is a place of refuge for our clients, providing them space, guidance, and time to regain their sense of self and sense of purpose. For some people, a 30-60-90-120-day treatment program might work, but that’s not our clientele. Our clients have hit rock-bottom, and no other program can help them.
The Center is situated in a camp-like setting with a shared meeting space and dining hall, residential cottages for our residents and on-site staff, a medical facility, exercise areas, counseling spaces, and a gazebo for impromptu gatherings and visiting.

Medical and psychiatric treatment and monitoring, on-site

We tell our clients
“If you do the work, don’t drop out or get kicked out, you’ll recover. You’ll have a meaningful and productive life again.”
After completing our two-year program, the Center maintains contact with clients’ relatives, friends and supervising authorities to ascertain continued sobriety, assimilation into the community, and their mental and physical health.
