Program Description

The Spera Recovery Center provides a safe, recovery-friendly environment for detoxification with an emphasis on developing a sustainable plan for ongoing recovery after detox.

Clients attend daily mutual aid meetings and become familiar with the recovering community. Spera Counselors complete initial assessments, monitor withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs, develop treatment plans, facilitate groups, and help develop sustainable plans for continuing recovery. This program is a social detox, meaning we do not prescribe medication for withdrawal. If withdrawal poses a medical risk, we will coordinate with another provider or a local emergency department to increase safety during detox.

Continuum of Care

Detox plays an important role in our continuum of care. During detox, counselors work with clients to discuss and coordinate ongoing treatment options, which may include residential/inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, and/or recovery support services like case management or sober housing. These services may be available within Dawn Farm or with another community provider. Detox is often the first step for people on their paths to recovery.

Our Spera Counselors have a special heart for addicts and alcoholics; we welcome clients with optimism and hope for real healing. We can help.

If you are struggling with addiction and want to find a better way, please call our Intake Team.
