Commonly asked questions
How is Miklat Recovery Society different than other treatment programs?
Our program is truly natural and holistic in nature. We are not confined to one method of treatment, we customize each clients treatment plan for their individual requirements. Although our main focus is on the 12 steps, we also offer various other services such as cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, and motivational therapy, among others. We provide access to SMART meetings, NA, AA, Art Therapy and Yoga. Our goal is to provide clients with the best possible outcome, and each client’s recovery is customized to suite their needs.
We also focus on outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, disc golf, baseball, and other sports. We feel that the body requires rehabilitation just as much as the mind.
What is your mandate as a charity organization?
