It can be difficult to discern the best fit for yourself or a loved one when scrolling through the endless listings of outpatient rehabs, inpatient drug recovery programs, intervention services, life coaches and sober companions, and the list goes on and on. You see pictures of lavish rehab centers and generic stock photos of the beach or mountain top retreats. Hopping from one website to another, seeing the same informational tabs to “contact us” or “meet our staff”. It is easy to get caught up in the flashy amenities, mock action shots of group counseling sessions, and promises of holistic approaches. You will most likely see quick paragraphs on what Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is or descriptions of different levels of care.
We at Pax House love to show off these talking points just as much as the next one. What we find though is that all of these things are just the icing on the cake. The real power, the real truth of the matter, is that we are far more interested in knowing who you are, what you are struggling with, and how we can help. From our chef and group facilitators, to our administrative staff and counselors, all the way to our owners; we are all people who have been where you are and have found a better way to live. Every single one of our staff members are in recovery themselves from one year all the way to 27 years. We come from all walks of life be it gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic background, geographically; we as staff have come together as our own family to pass on the solutions we have found to the next still suffering alcoholic and addict. That is our primary purpose.
We have transformed our deepest bottoms into incredible, beautiful lives of our own; and we believe with all of our experience that any client who comes in through our doors, who becomes part of the Pax family, can have the same healing journey we have gone on ourselves.
Individual and group counseling, psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, 12-step recovery, and so much more are just the context through which we speak the language of the heart. We just happen to have a beautiful facility, serene location, and customized treatment in order to better facilitate this process. Between our inpatient drug and alcohol rehab center, our outpatient rehab program, and in connection with several community-based recovery programs; we are able to offer a full continuum of care to ensure that when you are ready to take the world by storm, you feel supported, loved, and encouraged to move forward with a new found freedom.
So the only question we have left for you, is how free do you want to be?

"I would recommend the substance abuse treatment program at Pax House to other people with substance abuse or addiction problems. The people at Pax are really helpful and display empathy, not sympathy. They truly understand what you are going through, and what you've been through. There are people here that have gone through recovery before you, which provides the opportunity to learn from others who know the tough path of recovery."
"I would definitely recommend the substance abuse treatment program at Pax House to others. Pax House helped me conquer my demons that led to my alcohol and drug addiction. My addiction treatment at Pax House enabled me to be a good father to my daughter, a good husband to my wife, a good brother to my younger brother, and a good son to my parents. It turned me into a role model to others in my life, and inspired them by showing that it is possible to overcome any obstacle in your life, if you put your mind to it. I’m forever indebted to Pax House, and will always hold the people there in a special place in my heart.”
"The message I would give to someone who is struggling with alcohol or drug abuse and searching for help is to enter a substance abuse treatment program in a place where you will feel comfortable. Find a place that will offer the things that you feel are going to help you during early recovery, such as counseling, psychiatrists on staff, nurses and therapists, and people on the recovery team that will actually help you and support you during this time."

"Today marks 6 years of sobriety for me. I am extremely humbled by how much I've learned about myself and the world, and how little I truly know. Sobriety for me is not difficult. However, I find that life in itself can be difficult. Regardless of my challenges and my triumphs, I remain vigilant on living to my fullest potential. Living a sober life has taught me to be kind, loving, and understanding. To see the innocent in people that harm me and others. I love my job, my friends, my family. I could not possibly imagine a better life."
"Before discovering Pax House my spirit was broken. I was a shell of a human, and I could not stop using drugs. I traveled from Oklahoma and began a new life at Pax House in August of 2014. They shared with me a different way of life, a beautiful way of life. I felt like I finally belonged and was understood. The amount of love and support I received was immense! Today I have 2 years and 5 months clean and I wouldn't trade my life in recovery for anything. I now work for Pax House and I get to pay it forward every day. It's a privilege to be a source of strength and support for another suffering addict. My life has purpose if I can make a difference in the life of just one addict."
"It's all about God, recovery and everything else is a blessing. When i get that confused is when I start getting in my own head. I'm thankful for the team that I have around me that holds me down. I'm thankful for everyone in my life that's made this possible for me to live free on a day to day basis. I love my family, I love my Pax house family, and my recovery family. I love you all."
