Lake Ariel Recovery Center, like all of the Sanctuary Health Group facilities, is a medically proven recovery facility that provides comprehensive treatment for substance use and co-occurring disorders. Sanctuary Health utilizes Everlasting Recovery, an approach that aligns our client’s recovery journey directly with their life, to extend recovery into a client’s lifestyle. Our unique approach establishes treatment as a daily practice, refocuses an individual away from addiction towards a healthier existence, and makes sustainable recovery achievable. Due to this integration, each client begins Everlasting Recovery by assessing their performance in various aspects of their lives via the bio, psycho, and social model. This initial assessment allows our therapists to craft a personal recovery program, which allows the greatest opportunity for our clients to suppress addiction and adopt recovery as a permanent identity. When attending Lake Ariel Recovery Center, our clients will establish life skills, implement daily routines for lifestyle recovery, and ignite a purpose for achieving better their lives. Through accomplishing these tasks, our clients will achieve sustainable recovery.
