At SOZO Recovery Center, residential treatment is often referred to as “intensive care” or “recovery boot camp” because residents receive 63 hours per week of addiction studies and faith-based activities such as daily Bible study, worship services and a class at church on Wednesday nights that is specially designed for SOZO residents and those who wish to support them. One month at SOZO is equivalent to two and a half to three months in a conventional program.
Residents stay in residential treatment for two to three months. In the first two months there are no weekend passes or cell phones allowed. We have a blend of court-remanded clients and those who self-admit.
All groups are conducted in therapy-like group discussions. There are no lecture classes at SOZO. We work hard at creating an environment that supports the belief that “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”.
