Back2Basics long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center supports clients in early sobriety while they finish school.

Flagstaff, AZ (PRWEB) August 30, 2014

Jake W., 18, is completing his high school degree at Ponderosa High School while in the Back2Basics Outdoor Adventures transition program known as Beyond the Basics.

I want to finish high school so I can actually start on a real career path, said Jake. I just need English and math, and I'm done.

He has six months of sobriety under his belt after graduating from the initial Back2Basics program. Most clients choose to continue on to the Beyond the Basics transition program notes Spencer Gharrity, former resident and current Back2Basics transition coordinator.

Beyond the Basics supports residents in their first year of sobriety, said Gharrity. We help residents register for classes, schedule appointments with career counselors, and apply for jobs when they are ready.

Jake turned to sobriety at an early age, but is focused on balancing school and Beyond the Basics.

I'm engrossed in a 12-step program which is saving my life, he said. There are lots of kids pushing dope around school, so there's always that temptation there, but B2B has given me the tools necessary to face such problems and stay sober in the process.

Jake has plans to pursue higher education in holistic healing. Some day I want to be an alternative care doctor who specializes in herbal healing and other natural cures to treat minor issues.
