About Domus Retreat®
From Hope to Reality
In 2005, we created Domus because we couldn’t find a licensed treatment program for substance abuse that was not based on preset protocols and judgmental theories. Furthermore, we wanted a place where patients would be seen and treated as individuals with unique needs. A treatment center that would allow for a modified treatment plan 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 the archaic and tired 12 step rules. Through the 12 step lens, individuals are viewed as “addicts”. Because they consider addiction a chronic and untreatable disease, they break people down in rehab centers, only for strangers to attempt to rebuild them. Ultimately, the 12-step method to view and treat those suffering from addiction is proven to be ineffective and, 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 also 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. Our team doesn’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. Moreover, At Domus we respect your privacy, maintain your dignity and protect your feelings.
Our founders say:
“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.”
