With the opioid epidemic being center stage in the healthcare industry there is a heightened awareness of the need for a “continuum of care” to maintain long term sobriety.
The notion that one can achieve long term sobriety in 30 days or less of treatment alone with no long term care or support services has been squashed. This is being proven in the record breaking relapses and overdoses that have occurred over the last few years. New entrants in the market with large marketing budgets are portraying short term stays in their respective facilities will result in long term sobriety and a better quality of life. While there are exceptions to the rule, the vast majority of those seeking help to recover from addiction must continue on with a lifelong commitment to staying clean and sober.
Don Troutman recognized the importance of continued care when he founded Clean and Sober 30 years ago. Don recognized through his own experiences that addiction to alcohol and drugs is a lifelong issue. Recovery is in the present tense with those afflicted and never in the past tense. Effective recovery programs such as Clean and Sober teaches that addiction is a disease that will require a marathon effort with daily reminders that one must work at their recovery one day at a time.
With the addition of Clean and Sober Residential Treatment program 12 years ago, John Perry and his staff have set the stage for successful long term solutions with detox and residential treatment programs. Upon our residential treatment program being completed, our clients are then transferred into our transitional living facilities where they begin a new life of sobriety and well-being.
Clean and Sober has had over 6,000 clients in its 30 years in business with an estimated 86% success rate for those who complete our program. An industry leading statistic!!
Much has changed in the recovery space over just the last couple of years. Many new entrants in the market are profit-driven versus quality care driven. Between Don Troutman and John Perry they have a combined 42 years of proven success in helping thousands to achieve long term sobriety with their first rate staff, programs and facilities. First and foremost Clean and Sober always has the best interest of the prospective client in mind and has a proven record over many years in helping those in need of help regardless of their circumstances.
Clean and Sober’s vision over 30 years ago stands strong in these times of change and our system of care has evolved into the most successful recovery establishment in the Greater Sacramento area.
