We are not just focused on relapse prevention and abstinence, that is just the beginning!
At Eagle Overlook Recovery for Adolescents (EORFA), we are not just focused on relapse prevention and abstinence, that is just the beginning. We strive to help our clients develop a realistic and exciting alternative lifestyle to the competition, addiction. Our philosophy is to ignite passions that have been latent so to help foster a life with purpose and exuberance. In this new journey, pain and negative emotions are inevitable, and they are the main reasons for relapse. At EORFA, we help our clients expect, anticipate, accept and cope with pain. Pain sometimes informs and teaches, and sometimes makes us stronger. Coping is enhanced with cognitive skills in addition to helping the individual reach out to family, friends, and community. We strongly believe Spirituality is one of the best tools to help cope with pain and is itself an antidote to addiction. Addiction teaches instant gratification whereas spirituality teaches endurance, perseverance, and patience. Our beliefs with regards to spirituality is to bring it into awareness and then allow the individual to explore their own path. In summary, our philosophy emphasizes and utilizes the interconnection of mind, body, spirit, and community. Tied to an intention and purpose, this provides a formidable recipe against addiction.
