A groundbreaking report published last year by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University concluded that “the vast majority of people in need of addiction treatment do not receive anything that approximates evidence-based care.” The report added, “Only a small fraction of individuals receive interventions or treatment consistent with scientific knowledge about what works.” Here is where HPL will bridge the gap.
Higher Path Living was founded by Dennis Hofmaier, after his own experience with recovery from alcohol, and his disappointment in the lack of follow-up programs that met his own personal needs.
Hofmaier said, “12-steps alone were not enough for me and there had to be other options. SMART recovery is a program of choice. I believe I have the choice to use or not use, to drink or not drink. I’m ‘in’ my power when I choose not to drink.”
From that realization, Higher Path Living was created with a team of professionals who believe in evidence-based recovery. The Higher Path Living advisory council includes Joseph Perroni, MS, who serves as HPL’s clinical therapist and is an experienced counselor for those with addictive behaviors. HPL also encourages the involvement of “addictionologists” who are medical professionals who specialize in only treating people with addiction issues.
Higher Path Living provides guests with upscale residences with a pool, spa, private and semi-private rooms, queen-sized beds, high-end linens and furnishings and all meals are included. HPL can accommodate people at different stages in their recovery – from those who are in early sobriety and need more assistance, as well as those who are further along and may be employed.
There is a one-fee price structure, with various payment options. Full and partial scholarship opportunities are available. To help each guest stay accountable, Higher Path Living administers a thorough drug test regimen where random drug testing is conducted.
