Since 2012, Sherwood Hills Recovery Resort has offered non-12-step residential substance abuse treatment at a 706 acre mountain top resort in Wellsville, Utah. Treatment at Sherwood Hills last anywhere from 30 to 90 days and takes place in a co-ed facility. The program is individualized and includes group and recreational therapy.
Accommodations and Food
The Sherwood Hills Recovery Resort is a luxurious mountain property with access to hiking and exploring nature trails. The living spaces offered are 59 rooms in a former resort hotel. Thus most clients get private rooms with en suite bathrooms.
All luxury rooms (for an upgraded cost) offer a double hot tub and big screen TV. Standard rooms have double queen or single king and large baths with views of the surrounding mountains, which includes a 9-hole golf course. Sherwood Hills feeds clients in a lavish dining room through its European-style restaurant. Meals focus on complex carbohydrates from whole grains, that are not highly processed. No sugar is allowed. Three meals are provided a day and included in the cost of stay.
Treatment and Staff
Those coming to Sherwood Hills must have already completed medical detox elsewhere if necessary. Likewise, dual diagnosis support is not offered on-site, since there is no staff psychiatrist. The treatment at Sherwood does not adhere to a 12-step approach, instead using a regimen of holistic treatment methods. These include sauna vitamin detox, which is supposed to cleanse toxins from the body, biochemical repair therapy, which involves the use of IV drips to supply amino acids, vitamins and minerals and a program of nutritional supplements.
During a typical week clients attend group almost all day every day, when they are not in recreational therapy or participating in gender-specific recovery activities like swimming and yoga. Clients staying at Sherwood Hills also take part in two individual sessions a week, which are customized in collaboration with their assigned therapist. Mindfulness group and process group are also available. Residents get a massage once a week at the on-site day spa, which is included in cost of stay.
Sherwood Hills clients may bring a cell phone, but are not allowed to have it on their person during their stay. Personal phone usage is only allowed in the presence of their case manager or therapist, in addition to them being able to use the house phone at a specified time, every other night. Clients are not permitted to leave grounds on their own but do store trips into town with center staff to get necessities. Sherwood Hills therapists are available to clients 24/7.
The staff includes registered nurses, LCSWs, MFTs and LCSWs. Each resident gets their own case manager who oversees their treatment and may help them develop a plan for aftercare. This can include finding a sober living home, outpatient program or enrolling in school.
Sherwood Hills features an on-site day spa, exercise room, sauna, indoor pool and hot tub with waterfalls. It also has an on-site clinical facility that offers neurofeedback treatments.
Once a month, an instructor will come on site and take clients through a ROPES course. Tennis, volleyball, and golf, naturally, are also available.
There is no denying the natural beauty of the Sherwood Hills Recovery Resort. Although Sherwood Hills does not employ the 12-step modality, its services are on par with a luxury facility and offered at the cost of a mid-range rehab. This would still be a great choice for those seeking an alternative to the 12 steps in an idyllic environment.
