Personalized treatment programs that are both accessible and high-quality provide the best outcomes for individuals recovering from substance use disorder (SUD). According to the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, studies show “a need for more precise and personalized treatments, in which evidence-based interventions can be better tailored to the individual characteristics of addicted people.” Spero Recovery has created a peer community that offers personalized care to individuals seeking treatment for SUD and related mental health issues. The Spero model of recovery uses peer support, positive social interactions, and evidence-based methods to help people heal.
What to Expect From the Spero Model of Recovery?
The dedicated team at Spero Recovery collaborates with sober peers in the local community to create an intimate setting where people can feel heard and supported. Spero Recovery offers gender-specific residential treatment programs that focus on the unique needs of men and women. The community follows a 12-Step philosophy that focuses on acceptance, fellowship, accountability, and personal growth.
During treatment, people in recovery can expect to take advantage of the following:
- Individual and group therapy
- Peer and community activities
- Support groups
- Alternative holistic therapies and activities
- A 12-Step approach to recovery
Everyone has a unique recovery journey. The care team ensures treatment plans are tailored to each person’s needs and preferences. Programs are a minimum of 30 days, with most people staying for up to three months. Crafting and outdoor activities help people find new forms of self-expression while in treatment, establishing healthy behaviors and routines to maintain sobriety.
Understanding the Spero Recovery Model
Treatment can only be successful if people fully engage in their own recovery and remain motivated to maintain positive lifestyle changes. The Spero Recovery model of care focuses on utilizing The Twelve Steps as a foundation for healing and personal growth. However, each program is fully personalized to the needs of the individual, which means the therapy, activities, and support services offered are tailored to meet their needs and expectations.
People have an opportunity to choose the following:
- If they want a sponsor to guide them through treatment
- Whether they attend therapy or not
- How they engage with the community
- What skills they develop
Fellowship and healing through new experiences allow treatment participants to gain resources, make new routines, and develop essential life skills.
Accessibility to High-Quality Care
High-quality care provides people in recovery with the time, space, and tools they need to heal from the effects of substance use disorder. Spero Recovery offers a range of programs and services that can ensure participants feel supported, heard, and valued.
The residential programs are fully personalized, including referrals to outside resources if clients need additional therapy or support. Some of the services offered at Spero Recovery include:
- Woodworking and other hands-on crafting that encourages skill development and self-expression
- Weekly group activities and recovery meetings that improve communication, social skills, and self-confidence
- Experiential therapy and other forms of individual psychotherapy are available upon request
- Individualized treatment planning that includes extended support services for alumni in continuing care
- Sponsors that are available online
- Hiking, meditation, and other outdoor activities are available to increase mindfulness and reduce stress
Peers within the recovery program work together to create an inclusive and healing community. Everyone can access a wide range of services, activities, and therapy options to ensure a holistic approach to care.
A Community 12-Step Approach
The 12-Step philosophy is excellent for a community environment where peers and the care team can work together to create a positive recovery experience. Individuals in treatment are not required to have religious or spiritual beliefs. Instead, they are encouraged to embrace and follow the aspects of the 12-Step philosophy they find helpful. The Big Book guides treatment, and peers are encouraged to mentor and uplift one another.
According to the Cochrane Library, “The 12‐step program is intended to facilitate the internal psychological, emotional, and spiritual changes deemed necessary to sustain abstinence and lead to enhanced psychological well‐being that can compete with the more immediate rewards provided by alcohol use.” A community environment in a beautiful natural setting can increase the benefits of 12-Step facilitation. In addition, many people find it easier to make long-term behavioral changes with the support of a peer group like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).
Spero Model of Clinical-Informed Programming
In addition to providing a natural setting for healing, Spero Recovery uses a clinically-informed program that seamlessly integrates clinical therapeutic techniques with alternative holistic therapies. Tea ceremonies, experiential therapy, 12-Step meetings, and other treatment methods are mixed together to create a unique healing experience.
Spero Recovery programs provide the following:
- Access to high-quality holistic treatments
- Accountability for continued sobriety
- Individualized care plans
- A strong support system of mentors, peers, and addiction recovery specialists
Everyone faces unique challenges during early recovery, and the Spero Recovery program model can ensure that each person receives the care and support they need to heal.
