Ocean Hills Recovery held their annual summer sobriety party to close out summer 2011 at Salt Creek Beach Park with 17 program graduates celebrating Sobriety Birthdays.

Seeing 17 graduates of our program celebrating a year or more of sobriety was such an amazing moment for Ocean Hills Recovery.

Ocean Hills Recovery held their first annual summer sobriety party to close out summer 2011 at Salt Creek Beach Park with 17 program graduates celebrating Sobriety Birthdays.

Reuniting program graduates with staff and recovering addicts, with invitations extended to friends and family, graduates were awarded their token chip to earmark their years of sobriety by Program Director Rodney Robinson. Following the chip presentation, graduates shared their experiences to inspire hope to all attendees in their continued efforts for sobriety.

“When we first started having these sobriety time celebrations, we fit in one of our homes’ backyards and would celebrate for one or two alumni of our program,” Robinson said. “Seeing 17 graduates of our program celebrating a year or more of sobriety was such an amazing moment for Ocean Hills Recovery.” Robinson is also pleased to see the positive reviews Ocean Hills Recovery has been receiving from former patients and their family on City Search.

In addition to the invitees, whose sobriety ranges from one to six years, current Ocean Hills Recovery patients were also invited to attend for inspiration. The celebration is another step in the facility’s efforts to create and grow a supportive community beyond the traditional inpatient 30-, 60- or 90-day recovery programs. In late August, Ocean Hills Recovery announced their new social media agenda that includes connecting patients with other patients and staff, while also utilizing the real-time capabilities of Twitter to provide inspirational messages and encouragement. Besides utilizing social media outlets, they plan to use Ocean Hills Recovery reviews blog sites for patients to share their personal story about their struggle and triumph over addiction recovery.    

These efforts, combined with their leading-edge Collaborative Care Approach have combined for a marked increase in sobriety rates recently. The Collaborative Care approach combines a bio-psycho-social evaluation to assess the overall mental and physical status to create a recovery program that is unique for the individual. It is a leading-edge approach, where Ocean Hills Recovery has seen elevated success rates. In its 90-day recovery programs, Ocean Hills Recovery saw a 73% success rate of patients staying sober from 2010 to 2011.
