Some believe that treatment is a captive experience where an individual will face consequences if they refuse treatment. While some treatment centers implement strict rules with consequences, treatment centers like Spero Recovery Center provide treatment as a choice.
We provide individuals with the opportunity to build their unique plans to find joy in being sober without feeling forced or trapped. Treatment plans are tailored to each individual, which allows them to have their specific needs met.
As a result, most people feel comfortable during their stay, which creates an atmosphere filled with freedom. Spero Recovery Center creates an authentically motivating environment. This allows a safe space for people who want to recover.
Treatment as a Choice
Acknowledging an addiction problem takes courage and several steps to seek recovery. In many cases, it takes the destruction of an individual’s life and relationships for them to realize they have a problem.
Seeking treatment and long-term recovery often requires assistance from others. This can make an individual feel overwhelmed as they realize their entire life will have to be centered around recovery. This means creating a safe environment by staying away from any triggers to an addiction, which often means cutting ties with certain people and avoiding certain places.
As a result, it is normal for people in recovery to feel like life can no longer be enjoyable as they focus on restrains. Fortunately, treatment centers like Spero, which is peer-run, help individuals find creative ways to find joy and safety in their recovery.

How Spero Provides an Enjoyable Treatment Experience
Spero, which means hope in Latin, provides an enjoyable treatment program experience to a large audience as a result of multiple positive traits. Our facility has the opportunity to provide its services to millions of people, including minorities, that need an affordable treatment option.
Our recovery center does not accept any private or government-sponsored health insurance plans which allow uninsured individuals the opportunity to access affordable treatment. The majority of each client’s treatment expenses are covered by grants, donations, and scholarships in addition to an already affordable price.
We also create an enjoyable experience by building curiosity and excitement around recovery. We do this by allowing clients to contribute to their treatment plan without consequences if the plan does not work out.
Additionally, we provide a unique form of therapy known as experiential therapy, which creates a transformative experience that helps one find their authentic self. Experiential therapy involves therapy through participation in a variety of fun activities offered.
Some activities we offer include:
- Woodshop projects
- Nature walks
- Access to parks and trails
- Sand volleyball
An Authentically Motivated Treatment
We have the ability to provide a unique form of treatment that is beneficial for people seeking long-term recovery because we only accept clients who want treatment. We also focus on encouraging clients to regularly meet with a sponsor to work through their 12 Steps. However, 12-Step programs require individuals to surrender their control over their addiction by acknowledging their problem and accepting their need for external help.
The effectiveness of an individual’s recovery is dependent on their attitude and personal goals. While Spero is a treatment center that is accessible and affordable, an individual must be self-motivated and willing to fully accept the help provided.
The most important rule to recovery is an individual’s willingness to make significant changes in their life. Otherwise, the chances of relapse are heightened. While the idea of change can be overwhelming to people seeking recovery, individuals should remember that the changes made are necessary and for the better.
The main changes needed to maintain recovery include changing negative thinking patterns, avoiding places and people who trigger their addiction, and incorporating a 12-Step program of recovery. Changes made will help them achieve long-term recovery and provide a brighter future free from addiction.
Those who wish to put an end to active addiction must be willing to accept their lack of control over substance use to receive the help and tools they need to recover. Spero Recovery Center provides individuals with a unique form of treatment that includes authentic motivation without consequences. We don’t use strict rules and consequences because Spero believes an individual should play a role in a treatment plan that works for them without fear of negative outcomes. This creates a positive atmosphere that gives individuals a comfortable environment and the tools needed for long-term recovery. There are a number of significant benefits to a client’s contribution to their own recovery. For more information, call (303) 351-7888.
