Our approach to recovery is based on the concept of fellowship and spirituality found in 12-step principles. Studies show that by developing strong ties within the 12-step community, your chances of finding life-long recovery increase greatly.
Working a strong, spiritually based, 12-step program that includes education, family healing, and 12-step groups allows our residents to grow both emotionally and spiritually, living life as the truest version of themselves.
This program offers fellowship, but also many one-on-one opportunities with counselors and other Still Waters staff. Our staff to patient ratio is 3:1 at Still Waters for Men and 2:1 at Still Waters for Women.

Staff and volunteers of Still Waters mentor our residents by sharing their wisdom, experience, strength, and hope. They are committed to help those who are motivated for change to make the needed adjustments and commitments to realize a daily life free from alcohol and drugs and based on the spiritual principles of 12-step recovery.
We believe alcoholism/addiction is a chronic progressive illness and patient success is greater where there is ongoing support after discharge.
Still Waters Recovery Coaching is a six-month extension of the Still Waters experience for the individual as well as their family. Guided by the continuing care plan put in place by the treatment team at discharge, SWRC emphasizes community involvement with a focus of increasing an individual’s motivation to reach identified goals.

Accountability with the continuing care plan, sober fellowship, family involvement and extended support services serve as the corner stone for long-term sobriety.
The Family Program encourages family members and loved ones to further explore how their lives have been personally affected by the disease of addiction. Through monthly family phone meetings and weekly visitations, Still Waters provides a safe place for conversations the healing process for families and loved ones, while helping them get started on their own journey of recovery using the 12-Steps of Al-Anon.
During our Family Care Program, our clinical staff educates loved ones of residents how addiction affects the entire family. The Family Program’s foremost goal is for each member to heal, which begins with the understanding of addiction as a disease. Families begin to see addictive behavior not as a personal or moral condition, but as the symptom of an illness, often beyond one’s control.
We show families how to rebuild vital pieces of their relationships, including trust, boundaries, and communication, utilizing experiential and therapeutic group exercise. Clinical staff will also explore family dynamics and addiction in an effort to identify how to rebuild trust, create healthy boundaries, and use safe, clear communication.
Addiction impacts the entire family. That’s why Still Waters has built in programming for the loved ones of our residents. By educating family members about the disease of addiction, our clinicians are able to foster lifelong healing for each person.

Still Waters is an amazing place! I have personally witnessed the spiritual restoration of a loved one through this program. When I needed a place to send a loved one in active addiction, this was my first choice. The staff are honest, caring and tough when necessary. The bond that develops between residents, staff and alumni is inspiring. Still Waters saved my loved one’s life and I will be forever grateful!
