The Grounds Recovery is a transitional living program for young men (18-30) who have struggled with substance use and addiction, and who have completed a primary treatment, wilderness, therapeutic boarding school or other intervention. Our typical member is looking for a supportive environment to strengthen their recovery, prevent relapse and integrate newly acquired skills into a more normalized environment. We focus on helping members develop the independent living skills necessary for a successful transition into a healthier lifestyle. We know that the needs of young adult men are unique so we have developed a program specifically to meet those needs.
Based on the model used by Founder, Alex Zemeckis, MA, during his personal journey from addiction to recovery as a young adult, the foundation of the program is based on intensive mentorship relationships and peer to peer accountability. Combined with abundant recreation and work experience, we follow the simple edict of “work hard, play hard” as both a guiding principle and metaphor for a life in balance.
