Available for clients between the ages of 18 and 28 who have completed wilderness treatment at Four Circles or another primary treatment program, Fifth Circle is designed to foster the recovery process of young adults as they transition into eventual sober living.

“With the rates of substance abuse reaching epidemic proportions, we believe that it is imperative for our clients to have all the tools they need to successfully reenter life without succumbing to relapse,” said Shane Applegate, CEO of Four Circles Recovery Center. “By offering Fifth Circle, our clients are surrounded by the ongoing support and reassurance they need to practice independent life-skill management and other recovery skills in order to achieve lasting sobriety.”

Clients who receive services through Fifth Circle continue treatment through an extended continuum of care that includes the following:

  • An individualized approach to care that is customized to meet each client’s needs
  • Participation in a variety of treatment modalities and therapeutic techniques that are designed to elicit lasting healing
  • Academic support

In addition to having access to an array of evidence-based interventions, clients who engage in the Fifth Circle Extended Care Program will benefit from participation in a variety of support groups, including Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), which offer further encouragement and elicit lasting results.

Applegate added, “It is our hope that all who come through our primary treatment track will take advantage of the benefits Fifth Circle can offer them in their road to life-long recovery.”
