There are numerous options in sober living programs and the decision making process may feel overwhelming. Many programs utilize similar treatment plans and length of stay requirements for all residents. However, what sets The Granada House Review apart is our unique ability to customize services, mutual-help meetings, structure and length of stay to the needs of the individual. This allows residents to feel ownership over their care and to integrate more effectively back into their lives and the community.

Based on Brene Brown’s Connections Curriculum based on Shame Resiliency Theory (SRT) , I believe shame resiliency skill building is a “missing link” in clinical treatment. My goal is to help clients reconnect with themselves by learning how to be vulnerable. As a dual diagnoses and addictions specialist, I believe this curriculum is an invaluable tool in the recovery process. In his role as medical director of the Gunderson Outpatient Program, Joe B.
