Summit House Program

Summit House Transitions is an intermediate level of care that helps our clients transition from the primary treatment level of care at Legacy Treatment Center to their aftercare placement. We have designed a multiple-week program where clients focus on taking ownership and responsibility for their own wellness and recovery and put new skills into action.

The curriculum centers around each client creating a well-planned and practical daily routine and weekly schedule as well as a detailed relapse prevention plan. They become aware of their warning signs of relapse, participate in mapping out high risk situations, and learn strategies to navigate those situations. They take ownership for their aftercare plan, including researching and contacting extended care or sober living programs and finalize their personal Life Success Plan.

The daily schedule of Summit House engages clients in developing their vision for what life looks like after treatment. As a group, clients focus on how to accomplish goals and take care of responsibilities, and how to live each day with a sense of purpose. In an apartment-style living situation with 24-hour staffing, clients learn and practice life skills, develop a workout routine at a local gym, attend daily groups, and continue to meet with their licensed therapist weekly.

Weekend adventures are the highlight of the week at Summit House. Clients plan and execute weekend adventure trips that emphasize having fun in recovery and developing and utilizing a support community. 

The trips include:

  • rock climbing 
  • mountain biking
  • canyoneering
  • skiing
  • kayaking
  • white water rafting 
  • social events for young people in recovery
