In April 2014, Timothy Westbrook, a Master’s-level counselor who is also in recovery, opened Camelback Recovery. The house offers a structured, drug free living environment for men who have had previous treatment in the Arcadia corridor of Phoenix, Arizona.
Accommodations and Amenities
Camelback offer a total of eight beds, separated in four bedrooms and also has three and a half baths. Clients may either sleep on a twin bed while sharing their room with one other person for $2,150, or get a queen bed, for $2,500 while still sharing their room. There are typically four to six men staying at the house, on average. Camelback has a family-style great room, an entertainment center with surround sound, wireless Internet and allows access to on-site computers and printers. There is also a lovely backyard and dining area with a barbecue grill as well as an outdoor gas fire pit.
Food is included in the Camelback cost and is low sugar, low carb with organic produce and meats provided when possible, as well as grass-fed beef. Each client may also choose to purchase and prepare his own food.
Rules and Regulations
Camelback residents are expected to hold each other accountable. Clients are required to go to AA/NA meetings and need to have a sponsor with whom they actively work the 12 steps while also being part of home group with a service commitment. Drug testing takes place twice a week and a breathalyzer is used randomly on a regular basis, to ensure clients’ sobriety. There is a strict 9 pm curfew, Mondays through Fridays that moves to 11 pm on weekends.
A typical Camelback day starts with the morning check-in, which ends with a 10-minute meditation. Thereafter follow on-site and outside meetings, therapy, counseling and coaching. Exercise is next on the agenda, including weekly scheduled yoga, spin, CrossFit and hiking sessions. Five workouts, considered “self-care,” are expected to be implemented per week. A Camelback day ends with the evening check-in, during which clients get to constructively review their day. There is always a house manager on site to keep track of the clients’ comings and goings, a keyless entry system is utilized.
The backyard pool offers a an oasis in the desert heat and a place for the clients to hang out and fellowship.
Camelback Recovery is a fresh organization with a classic approach to sober living support. The 12-step modality is tried and true, the Camelback facilities are new, luxurious and comfortable. Add to that the fact that cost for stay at Camelback falls within the range of an economical rehab and that there is no designated length of said stay, and this may be a great choice for men seeking long-term recovery support.
