Imagine making new friends and living with purpose, in the sun of Las Vegas. Come join us at one of our beautiful recovery residences. There is a vibrant community at Higher Path Living waiting to support you.
Higher Path Living is not just a sober living house – but an innovative addiction recovery experience. At Higher Path Living we help the individual heal the root causes of addictive behavior with a holistic body, mind and spirit approach.
Our positive family-like environment offers custom recovery options ranging from the latest evidence-based scientific breakthroughs to time-honored practices such as yoga, meditation and mindfulness. Our mission is to give our guests back their personal power over substances and aid them in the transition into a happy, sober life.
THE HIGHER PATH LIVING DIFFERENCE
Unlike traditional sober living, the team at HPL actively engages with each guest to understand their history of addictive behaviors, and we work with the individual to create their own recovery plan. Since no two people are the same, there is no single avenue to long-lasting sobriety and a life that is addiction-free. HPL’s compassionate approach paves the way towards happiness and provides fertile ground in which to appreciate, explore, and expand on the strengths you already possess – to flourish – and to fulfill your greatest potential.
FOCUSING ON THE “WHOLE PERSON”
Substance abuse and other addictive behaviors are not an easy behavior to overcome because of the many emotional, mental and physical effects of the disorder. HPL has a “holistic” approach to recovery – focusing on the mind, body and spirit. We don’t use the term “addict” or “alcoholic” when referring to ourselves or guests. We are people who have the issue of addiction, and separate out “addictive behavior” from who we truly are as a person.
RECOVERY SUPPORT SERVICES & MEDICAL-ASSISTED TREATMENT
Guests are introduced to three time-honored recovery support services including 12-Steps, SMART Recovery (Self-Management and Recovery Training), and Refuge Recovery – an eastern Buddhist-based approach to sobriety. Each of these services provides a different approach or set of tools to recovery, and by exposing our guests to these various approaches, the guest can create their own “recovery tool-box” that resonates with them.
We also encourage our guests with substance abuse issues to work with addictionologists (medical doctors who are board certified in treating addiction) and we are fortunate to have renowned physicians in Las Vegas that have helped our guests with evidence-based medical care. In addition, HPL has teamed up with psychiatrists and psychologists that can assist in dual-diagnosis and therapy for process-addictions, such as gambling. Some of our guests come to HPL already engaged in IOP (intensive outpatient program) or have a doctor or therapist they are using, and we fully support our guests to continuing to work with those programs and professionals while in residence at HPL.
Higher Path Living also encourages all people struggling with substance abuse to follow the recommendations of The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services). “SAMHSA recognizes the essential role of recovery support for persons with substance abuse and addiction in order for them to maintain their overall health and wellness. SAMHSA recognizes all pathways to recovery including abstinence attained with FDA-approved medications (e.g., methadone, buprenorphine products including buprenorphine/naloxone combination formulations and buprenorphine mono-product formulations, naltrexone products including extended-release and oral formulations, disulfiram, and acamprosate calcium). ”
TRANSITIONAL SOBER LIVING
HPL puts recovery in motion. We work with our guests to integrate their home and work lives, or assisting in a life transition – and returning to HPL to process these experiences with the Recovery Coaches and their peers in residence. This approach is unique to HPL, and helps the individual identify triggers in their regular life and receive the tools to help cope and overcome them. The certified Recovery Coaches at HPL are engaged with the family of each guests to guide and assist them in helping their family member or friend to understand, support and love the person…to see and treat the person as who they are, and to separate out the “person” from the “addictive behavior”.
HIGHER PATH LIVING STANDARDS
Each guest must abide by the living standards set by HPL. At HPL, we view recovery as a journey, and we are aware that it’s rare that an individual’s first attempt at sobriety lasts a lifetime. Residences are staffed by a certified Recovery Coach 24/7.
Most guests stay at the HPL residence anywhere from three to six months, and lovingly refer to it as their “home for now”. Guests of HPL and graduates meet up at the residence, often with their families, for dinner and socializing. Many former guests keep in touch and participate in outings, recovery support meetings and other activities. This is just one aspect of HPL that accounts for our high success rate.
