Treatment Philosophy

At Four Circles Recovery Center, our philosophy is based on research-backed evidence that the ideal addiction treatment milieu for young adults includes the following three features:

  1. A nurturing residential community
  2. Intensive substance abuse treatment services
  3. Experiential adventure-based therapy

For clients who are struggling with substance abuse, addiction, depression, and related emotional or behavioral issues, we believe that a treatment program that is grounded in these three core components provides the life-changing experience that prepares clients to achieve long-term sobriety and pursue healthy, successful futures.

To provide the effective comprehensive care that our clients deserve, we incorporate the following standards and principles into their personalized treatment plans:

  • Clinical Excellence – Our staff continues to invest the time and training that is necessary for Four Circles to be the most clinically sophisticated adventure-based substance abuse treatment program in the country.
  • Research Support – In addition to meeting the individual needs of each client, we show the value and efficacy of our program through independent research.
  • 12-Step Philosophy – The 12-Step model is an essential component of the Four Circles treatment philosophy. Our clients attend daily meetings, complete assignments based on the 12 Steps and learn to apply the 12-Step principles to their daily lives.
  • The Transformative Power of Nature – Removed from the pressures and stresses of daily life, and placed in a challenging yet inspiring outdoor environment, clients are given the time and space to look within themselves and discover the fundamental truths that will guide them through their recovery journey.
  • Family Involvement – At Four Circles, we know that substance abuse impacts the entire family, and we believe it is essential for clients’ loved ones to play an active role in the recovery process.

As a recovery center dedicated to those we serve, we also embrace six core values:

  • Clinical Excellence – We tirelessly pursue the best possible clinical outcomes for our customers.
