Retorno’s program goes beyond traditional drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation. At Retorno, we have created a whole ecosystem to help you restart your life. You can expect to build skills, self-esteem, and the internal resources for long-term recovery.
Situated in a bucolic rural setting, Retorno provides an environment that removes distractions and helps you embrace the 12-Step program and recovery. At Retorno you will be surrounded by natural beauty. The serenity of nature, the opportunity to spend time outdoors, the availability of therapeutic horseback riding and animal assisted therapy, and the support of the skilled therapeutic team at Retorno all combine to help you reset and restart your life.
Beyond the group meeting room
At Retorno, you can find a great exercise facility – outdoors. You can expect many of your group meetings to take place – outdoors. We find that many of clients take advantage of our therapeutic horseback riding program (even those who never imagined themselves on a horse) which takes place, of course – outdoors. For animal assisted therapy, bike riding, and even for part of your work program at Retorno, you will find yourself outdoors.
At Retorno you won’t be pampered with a Jacuzzi, a staff who cleans up after you, or gourmet cuisine. Going outdoors is just part of moving out of your comfort zone, and beyond the habits that support and enabled your addiction. With the support of your group and the therapeutic staff, you will take a fearless moral inventory of yourself and learn to grow.
Getting back to basics, getting to recovery, learning to have fun
At Retorno, we take recovery seriously. And, we believe that part of staying sober and clean is learning how to have fun without drugs or alcohol. Being clean and sober can be rewarding and fun.
Hiking and and cycling are a regular part of the program at Retorno. Adventure trips and outdoor activities help you internalize that you can get your adrenaline-pumping without substance abuse. Sober and stimulated, you can discover new pastimes and interests that excite and energize you.
Take up outdoor challenges when you are ready
In line with our philosophy, clients are never forced to participate in horseback riding or any of the other more adventurous activities. However, in our experience, many clients gradually open up to the full range of outdoor and adventure experiences at Retorno. In fact, the “Reset and Restart” that clients experience at Retorno often begins and is built with these less conventional venues.
Hiking, horseback riding, cycling, and other activities are fun. They also provide a venue for teasing out emotions and behavior patterns. Often, during a trip your therapists can help you process and channel emotions.
How many of your limitations are real, and how many are in your mind?
Adventure activities can help you stay mindful of the present moment while building skills and confidence. Outdoors, flush with accomplishment, the therapeutic staff can help you examine the limiting beliefs that may be holding you back. Connecting with animals, nature and the outdoors can enhance the work of recovery. As you push your limits, you can visualize and plan for a life without drugs or alcohol, and imagine just how deeply fulfilling that life would be. At Retorno, you will step outside your comfort zone, and a whole world of possibilities opens up for you.
