The standard addiction treatment has been Twelve Step and Rehab, yet study after study have shown too many failures. The “revolving door” of Rehab is commonplace, but where is the real recovery? CHI Recovery is a holistic, integrative and Evidenced-Based, Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that rocks the status quo and transitions participants successfully towards lifelong emotional, physical, and spiritual health. CHI Recovery, has been recognized as an innovative leader in the Addiction Treatment community.

*New Study About Addiction Treatment

The study just released by Dr. James Sorensen of University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and Dr. Jasmin Llamas of Santa Clara University found that of those in CHI Recovery’s program, 67% of program participants were successful, and only 33% suffered a relapse compared to the national average of 40%.

The Study’s Results

With one-of-a-kind, evidence-based outpatient care centered around the 17 essential components mandated by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA), CHI Recovery’s unique form of addiction treatment is showing:

  • Unprecedented compliance to treatment, leading to early success rates close to 80% as measured by sustained recovery after one year.
  • Of those that suffered a slip, nearly ALL returned to treatment within hours.
  • 90% of all participants received a wide variety of holistic and western healthcare services (123 events on average) before being discharged from CHI’s program, and all of these occurred in a unique community-based outpatient setting.
