Bay Area’s Premier Holistic Addiction Treatment Center
We’ve all heard the old adage, “no man is an island”, meaning he can’t walk through life alone. He needs support and a community. But who wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to escape all responsibility and stress and leave all your worries behind to live on a desert island? Imagine—you can come and go as you please, wake up at any hour of the day, and indulge in every pleasure under the sun, then wake up and do it again. It sounds fantastic, right?! But what happens when you start to get a bit stir-crazy? You start to slowly lose all sense of time, direction, control, and sensibility and begin to wonder if you’re ever going to make it back to the mainland. Once the fear kicks in, you seriously question every decision you’ve ever made and wish you could make it all go away—but you can’t. You’re stuck with no way out. If only you could spot a ship out there so you can give a signal. But they’ve all left by this time. They’ve all sailed away into the night because you didn’t board when you had the chance. You look around and hear nothing but waves crashing into an empty night and wonder how you even got there to begin with. You scream as loud as possible until your throat is raw and your voice becomes hoarse. All to no avail. This sounds intense, but many of us have felt this way from the day-to-day stresses of life or a growing addiction that grabbed hold before we knew what happened. In life, we make decisions that may seem like a vacation on a desert island, but turn out to be a living nightmare for ourselves and our loved ones. This is why,” no man is an island”.
Summit Estate understands that anyone on the island needs a community to support, advise, guide, and encourage him or her through their addiction recovery journey. We take a holistic approach and empower our clients to face their personal shadows and heal the body from the inside out. Holistic wellness is the idea that all parts – the mind, body and spirit – are interconnected and when one part is out-of-balance, the entire body suffers. Our holistic addiction treatment center is equipped with a variety of treatment options and programs to fit your specific need or preference. Check out why you should choose Summit Estate as your home through this transformative time of healing.
Offering Inpatient and Outpatient Holistic Healing
Outpatient Treatment Facility
There’s a reason why friends get together to catch up over coffee or a good meal. These activities naturally promote a sense of community and socialization. We provide a safe haven for you to unwind and connect with others without any external pressures or influences. Taking the necessary steps to improve your life can be extremely isolating and it is easy to feel alone at times, driving you to continue in your destructive behavior. Connecting with each other allows our clients to be open and share their struggles and triumphs in a safe environment, and also keeps them motivated and inspired through shared experiences and conversations. Our space is warm, inviting, comfortable, and feels like your home away from home.
Inpatient Rehab Treatment Facility
True healing takes place when a person is not simply trading one addictive vice for another, but has taken the necessary steps to address the root of the problem. Our diverse approach to holistic treatment allows you to explore techniques and modalities specific to your individual needs. While some may resonate more with yoga or a personal trainer, others may find healing with massage therapy, acupuncture, or nutritional counseling. We make these services readily available to clients who wish to take advantage of them.
Holistic Addiction Treatment Amenities
Healing the Body and Soul Through Yoga
We include yoga in all of our drug and alcohol treatment packages for the universal benefits it holds. The word Yoga is Sanskrit for “to join or yoke together”, and helps to clear the mind, strengthen the body, and nourish the soul. Our highly-trained instructors incorporate the practice of meditation, allowing the student to quiet the mind and create space for self-discovery. It is during this time clients are able to truly listen, recognize the true self, and zero in on the root cause of addiction or illness. This is where lasting change begins. The movement involved in yoga keeps the body strong, lean, and flexible which naturally rids the body of aches and pains caused by injury, age, or abuse. Those enrolled in our Day Treatment or Intensive Out Patient Programs can participate in or Yoga programs at the Day Treatment center. We pride ourselves in providing a comfortable, judgement-free environment and well-trained professional staff to ensure success.
Massage Your Way to Recovery
“Luxury” is one word that comes to mind when most people think about massage. The truth is, massage is a multi-purpose service intended to ease stress, tension, anxiety – and just to feel good. Massage therapy is an excellent way to ease pain after injury or alleviate symptoms from diseases ranging from fibromyalgia to digestive disorders. It is also a relaxing way to relieve residual energy and detoxify the body during substance abuse treatment. Remember, relaxation and reward are important elements of recovery. Massage therapy is an additional service that can be made available during your stay at Summit Estate, at an additional cost.
Reflexology: A Little Goes a Long Way
An alternative to massage, reflexology applies pressure to specific points on your hands and feet that correspond with certain organs and systems of the body. It aids in restoring a general sense of well-being and, also, naturally and effectively detoxifies the body. Results can be immediate and may include a more restful sleep, improved circulation, and a strengthened immune system, all things that are very beneficial during your rehabilitation. Over time, reflexology has been known to improve digestive health, insomnia, migraines, constipation, etc. This service is a perfect alternative to over-the-counter remedies, which may trigger negative behavior or impulses. Reflexology is offered during your stay at Summit Estate, at additional cost.
Try Something New with Acupuncture
You may think acupuncture is a painful technique, but in actuality, it is commonly used to relieve pain and promote healing. Acupuncture is an age-old Chinese healing modality designed to relieve pain and move negative energies lingering in the body. Energy imbalances can have a wide range of effects. Acupuncture is able to naturally alleviate these imbalances with the use of thin needles placed on certain key points on the body, including pain, nausea, vomiting, and headaches, which patients generally experience during detox. It is an ideal holistic treatment for those with severe withdrawal symptoms.
Fuel and Mend Your Body with Food
Successful addiction recovery and nutrition go hand-in-hand. Prolonged drug and alcohol abuse can cause the body to become malnourished and perform at sub-optimal level. Toxins, whether drugs or chemicals in food, can severely interfere with the natural balance and function of the physical body and mind. These contaminants cloud the mind making it difficult for addicts to make sound everyday decisions, even in moments of sobriety. Our team of experienced chefs prepare healthy, delicious, and well-balanced meals daily to aid in restoring our clients to their optimal health. A clean diet means a clear mind, and we can prove it! Take advantage of our affiliated nutrition counselor who will help you to customize a plan for continued success after recovery, at an additional cost.
Transform Your Body with a Trainer
At Summit Estate, we encourage our clients to commit to transforming their bodies while simultaneously renewing their mind and releasing their spirit within. A strong, toned, and healthy body is an excellent way to boost confidence and encourage recovery. Those enrolled in our Day Treatment Supportive Housing Program can enjoy access to our fully-equipped fitness center and take advantage of weekly training sessions with our affiliated personal trainers at an additional cost.
The Great Outdoors
One of the best natural antidepressants is spending time in the great outdoors! The grounding elements of nature can help bring you back to center and restore a sense of mental balance and connection. Our scenic 23-acre grounds—including gardens, orchards, and stocked fishing pond– provide an excellent playground for our clients during personal time. Drug and alcohol recovery can be stressful. Taking in the wonders of nature provides a peaceful, natural, and safe escape. Take a jog on one of our trails, meditate in one of our gardens, or sit and enjoy the floral scents of the seasons blooms.
Sober Adventures / Weekly Outings
For many addicts, social gatherings and fun times can be associated with using. By exposing our clients to situations that may be potential triggers, we reintroduce fun through Sober Adventures, while helping them navigate through these impulses. Surrounded by supportive staff, clients enjoy a weekly activity, like the beach, a museum, a movie, a lunch outing, a sporting event, etc. These Sober Adventures help our clients understand their triggers and how to navigate them once they leave Summit Estate. Additionally, having these shared experiences cultivates lasting relationships and creates a strong, supportive bond throughout your recovery.
Your journey to sobriety and personal freedom is a difficult and intimate one. Summit Estate is here to help you off your island and return you to the mainland of confidence, peace, joy, and self-control. You deserve to become the best version of yourself and, at Summit Estate, we will be by your side throughout your journey. It’s time to take your power back!
