Meet Our Marketing and Admissions Team

Outreach is one of the most important ways we can spread the word about our mission and our successes. We want our approach to healing to be a source of hope and inspiration for those who administer and receive treatment for trauma or self-defeating behaviors. In conjunction, we need expert admissions specialists to field questions and ensure that those who inquire about our programs learn how to find the help they need. These public-facing roles require exceptional compassion, kindness and wholehearted faith in the mission of The Guest House.

Meet Our Clinical Team

Part of our goal as a recovery center is providing a variety of high-quality treatments that allow our guests to try several different therapeutic modalities during their stay with us. This would not be possible without the expert team of therapists and clinicians that work at The Guest House every day, providing the treatments our clients need to recover and guiding them through their therapies. Our clinical team is an integral part of what makes our community so special.

Meet Our Medical Team

The Guest House offers a cutting-edge integration of mental health treatment and general medicine. We understand the profound importance of providing medical care that heals our guests physically while they learn to heal mentally and spiritually, too. Our “Root Cause Integration Model” outlines a complete approach to healing that is revolutionary in the realm of addiction treatment, focusing on finding and treating the source of self-defeating behaviors rather than managing surface-level symptoms.

Spirit2Spirit

The Guest House moves beyond normal recovery treatment to heal deeper underlying traumas and emotional burdens. One of the ways we accomplish this is through offering our clients access to the Spirit2Spirit Healing program, a treatment model that harnesses the power of experiential therapies to encourage clients to engage in and open themselves up to the healing process.
