Back2Basics Sober Living enters second chapter as a business with new additions to the program while housing more residents than ever.

Del Moral Iturbe and DuPrez are all smiles at the March 2012 Spanish cultural immersion trip to Ixtapa, Mexico.

We started this company with passion, and now we have the experienced and seasoned staff to back up that passion.

Despite the economic downturn, small, family-run alcohol and drug rehabilitation center, Back2Basics Sober Living, has continued to prosper and now houses more residents that ever since opening its doors in 2010.

CEO and founder, Roy DuPrez believes that Back2Basics’ success comes from their grass-roots business model and the staff’s ability to give residents individual attention. “We are more economical than some of the ‘high end’ programs. We don’t have a lot of unnecessary overhead. We are a small community that runs efficiently. Our expenses are realistic and we provided maximum one-on-one service.”

Over the last year Back2Basics has become “more seasoned” with more qualified staff, a stronger outdoor adventure component, professional online presence and continuous program success rate. This May the northern Arizona long-term, recovery facility will be celebrating its two year anniversary.

“We started this company with passion, and now we have the experienced and seasoned staff to back up that passion,” said DuPrez. “We’ve been able to reach out to more families, collaborate with other organizations, accelerated our vocational training, participated in more community service, and involved other local institutions.”

One of the advancements within the last year includes a 24/7 nutrition program lead by trained culinary professional, Kathy DuPrez. This part of the program teaches residents how to make good choices at the grocery store and involves a weekly cooking class.

Kathy’s latest project includes a made-from-scratch garden on the Back2Basics grounds. “I am excited to include this in their culinary program of cooking, and now to being able to pick from the garden our own fresh vegetables,” said Kathy.

CFO and co-founder, Graciela Del Moral Iturbe adds that Kung Fu two times a week, Spanish lessons and the Spanish immersion program have also further improved Back2Basics program. “This is just one more opportunity to demonstrate the residents that sobriety is attractive, fun, full of learning opportunities and possible,” said Del Moral Iturbe.

The most rewarding part of the program is getting to watch the progress of the young men in recovery notes Del Moral Iturbe. “For each resident that has come through the door I know to never give less than a 100 percent; sooner or later that effort impacts them and they are able to embrace it and push through their own hardship. At the end, I know that the effort I give, every single time, has been worth it.”
