The Recovery Village is excited to celebrate its one-year anniversary. Our therapists and staff have worked hard this past year to make our treatment center what it is today, and it is at this time that we celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of our clients and their families.
Over the past year we have helped many exceptional individuals that have worked their way back to healthy living after struggling with eating disorders or substance abuse disorders.
We started with three clients when we opened our doors on June 3rd, 2013, and have had the privilege of serving over 700 clients in this, our first, year.
The Recovery Village has joined the world of social media, and currently has over 1000 Likes on Facebook. We are using these and connections to help celebrate our anniversary.
We are asking past patients and their families to participate in our #celebratingYOU social events that will be announced on Facebook throughout the month of June.
Shortly after opening, we added Yoga Therapy into our curriculum and quickly witnessed the benefits our clients were experiencing. Under the direction of Sandee Nebel, our Yoga program has continued to grow and provide healing to many of our clients. Sandee has been a blessing to our program, and we are thankful to her for helping us incorporate this beneficial method into our treatment curriculum.
Since our opening, we have taken part in events and opportunities in the community, which have helped shape who we are and what we do.
Dr. Stacy Seikel recently spoke with FOX35 about heroin addiction, providing much needed information to the community. In February of this year, Sandee Nebel was honored with the task of facilitating all of the yoga sessions at the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (IAEDP) Symposium. We were also a sponsor of the Helping Other People Eat (H.O.P.E.) golf tournament, which helped raise awareness for eating disorders. One of our most exciting accomplishments happened last August, when The Recovery Village became JCAHO accredited, adding us to an elite group of treatment centers in the country that have met the highest standards for care.
We, at The Recovery Village, have much to look forward to. We have recently completed a construction project that will add 13 beds to our eating disorders program, and we now also operate a new outpatient location. We are in the process of adding an Equine Therapy program for our clients to participate in during their stay with us.
