Domus Retreat® from Hope to Reality
Domus was created in 2005 because we couldn’t find a licensed treatment program for substance abuse that was not based on preset protocols and judgmental theories. We wanted a place where patients would be seen and treated as individuals with unique needs. A treatment center that would allow the plan to be modified to best fit the person’s needs, instead of trying to change the person to meet the conventional treatment protocol.
We also did not want to follow archaic and tired 12 step rules. Through the 12 step eyes, individuals are supposed to be seen as “addicts”; addiction is considered a chronic and untreatable disease, and people are broken down in rehab centers, to be rebuilt by strangers. The 12-step method to view and treat those suffering from addiction has not only been proven to be ineffective, but in some ways even cruel.
At Domus, our multidisciplinary team of professionals are there to assist you in reaching the most progress, while healing your mind, body, and soul. We offer individualized care so you can privately address the root causes of opioid use disorder in a discreet, supportive environment designed to make you feel comfortable and secure. We don’t rely on steps, cookie-cutter approaches or judgmental theories; we rely on what we see, hear and understand when treating “you.” We also do not require you to share your most private thoughts, feelings or experiences with others. Although peer support can be advantageous for some, it can be embarrassing and hurtful to others. At Domus we respect your privacy, maintain your dignity and protect your feelings.
“A treatment center that follows a one-size-fits-all protocol is simply not the right choice. Instead, people should look for a program that specializes in the issue they are seeking treatment for. Facilities that are willing to modify the treatment plan based on the unique needs of the person seeking help.”
