Singing Trees Recovery Center is a co-ed residential substance abuse treatment center located just south of Garberville, California. The facility offers a variety of treatment options including a seven-day detox, a 14-, 30-, 60- or 90-day inpatient program, aftercare and a continuing day program for up to a year. Singing Trees combines the best of both medical and social model approaches, including an emphasis on spirituality and the 12 steps, and views alcohol and drug dependency as a treatable disease.
Accommodations and Food
Located right next to the Eel River in the heart of the Redwoods, Singing Trees is a 22-bed treatment facility providing care for Northern California residents in a natural and upscale camp-like setting. Residents stay in three-person cabins, each with a private bathroom. Electronics are not allowed, but there’s a spacious community room with a ping pong table and games for down-time. There is an on-site gym facility and clients are also permitted to hike in the surrounding redwood forest or swim in the river nearby.
Meals at Singing Trees are top-notch, and enjoyed by clients and staff and served in a communal dining room. Lunch and dinner are cooked by a chef but clients help themselves to breakfast including bagels, cereal and omelets.
Treatment and Staff
Singing Trees is not a medical facility, so dual diagnosis support is not available and meds are not prescribed or distributed. A seven-day detox is provided, however, using the most up-to-date medications (including Suboxone) to help ease the symptoms of withdrawal.
Using evidence-based therapy, Singing Trees provides services from 9 am to 9 pm with methods including CBT, DBT, EMDR, group therapy and four 12-step meetings a week. Clients also attend at least four individual therapy sessions a week, family therapy on the weekends and four to six educational and process groups per day. Large blocks of free time are allowed throughout the day and clients are expected to use some of this time to work the first three steps of AA/NA.
Residents who’ve graduated into the continuing care program are granted two-day passes to visit family and are expected to attend several off-site 12 steps meetings a week. Drug testing is required upon return.
Singing Trees offers yoga, sweat lodges, art therapy and modern work-out equipment at their state-of-the-art facility.
For those enrolled in the 90-day program, assistance is available to help clients formulate and attain vocational and educational goals. They’re also encouraged to work with a sponsor, apply for part-time work in the area and start a relapse prevention program.
A continuing care program is available following completion of treatment to those who want a structured sober living environment. A year of free aftercare is also available for those who graduate any of the Day Residential Drug Rehab Treatment Programs. For those attending the 14-day program, three months of free aftercare are provided.
Singing Trees is a residential treatment center serving those suffering from alcohol and drug abuse in Northern California. Set in the majestic Redwood Forest, Singing Trees focuses heavily on the 12 steps while offering a solid range of evidence-based treatments in a unique, healing environment.
