Q: What we do and why we do it?
We are a group of people from all walks of life who have recovered from addiction! -man that feels good to say- The men and women who staff Recovery In Action know how to beat addiction, not by studying it in a classroom, or by creating a magic pill in a lab, but by struggling with it! Now we have turned our home on a 40 acre ranch into a non-profit recovery center with an 85% success rate!
Q: Why is RIA so successful?
We pride ourself on a 85% (current) success rate! We got there by helping our clients, the only way we knew how... the way WE did it! we focus on step-work, we attend meetings, we celebrate successes BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY we spend every waking moment being in service, we spend every day working the program and we are CONSTANTLY immersed in recovery.
Q: What if I do not have a higher power?
A higher power is an absolute MUST in order to recover from your addiction. However that is not as daunting as it seems. RIA celebrates ALL religions and spiritual beliefs. Still having a hard time acknowledging a higher power? Stand in a river and reverse the direction of it's flow... Stand on a mountain and stop the wind from blowing. A higher power does not mean that you worship Christ, or Buda, or Allah (although by all means if that is your faith then you are MORE than welcome.) it simply means you understand that you are not the biggest thing on this planet, and that it is ok to need help.
Q: I will not test clean on my first day... am I still welcome?
It is never too late to get help, and that includes minutes after using. While RIA IS NOT A DETOX center we will not turn you away if you do not need a detox center but have used in the past 24 hours.
Q: How do I know if RIA is right for me?
One of our incredible staff members will help you over the phone through an evaluation process, where they will gather some history and hear your story. If both of you decide RIA is a good next step for you then we will walk you through a intake process and then finally your first week will be a trial week. IF RIA IS NOT THE RIGHT PLACE FOR YOU, we will help you place yourself in another program.
