Innovative rehab operator Origins Recovery Centers announced today that it opened its flagship drug and alcohol recovery center for men on tropical South Padre Island, Texas. Set in a luxury resort acquired by Origins in 2009, the Company’s Texas beach rehab concept raises the competitive bar with its winning formula of unique location, first-class facilities, serious recovery culture and affordable pricing options.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) 1, September, 2009 – Dallas-based Origins Recovery, LLC announced today that it opened its flagship men’s residential recovery center on South Padre Island, Texas. With residency limited to only forty adult men, the Company’s island location represents one of its four themed recovery center concepts. “Origins’ vision is to provide our intensive 12-Step based program, The Origins Experience™, in four distinctly themed campuses and locations – Urban, Ocean, Desert and Mountain,” said Ben Levenson, Chief Executive Officer of Origins. “Being competitive today means having all of the elements right. The old paradigm of treating recovering alcoholics and drug addicts in institutional-type environments for only 28-days is thankfully passing. It’s impersonal, too short of term and often not in the best interest of the client,” he said. Origins Recovery leads the nation in the new-wave of smaller, more specialized themed-rehab environments with a deeper focus on spirituality. Levenson believes the evolution is here to stay. Peter Marinelli, Chief Recovery Officer of Origins said “Our 90-day program, The Origins Experience™ is special because it is at its core an intensive immersion in the vital spiritual disciplines proven necessary to achieve and maintain happy sobriety. Our clients tend to be men who have unsuccessfully tried the heavily-clinical approach to recovery commonly offered at traditional treatment centers. The chronically relapsing man needs much more than quality therapy. We facilitate a deeper immersion in the body of transformative spiritual work while helping them to habituate a sober, healthy, productive way of life.” Origins’ life-skills program component includes sessions led by consulting experts and range from financial responsibility and career aptitude testing to cooking, public speaking, physical exercise and more.
Origins ocean-themed location on South Padre Island is unique, an aspect Origins believes is one key to their success. “Origins Recovery on South Padre Island is the only beach-side rehab of its type between California and Florida. Our Texas gulf coast location lets us offer the central United States a geographically accessible and affordable beach setting while simultaneously differentiating ourselves from the regional alternatives,” he said. The older dude-ranch type rehab settings quite common in Texas can be too rustic and uncomfortable for some people. “This may be paradise, but it is no vacation – we’re extremely serious about sobriety,” Levenson said. The Origins campus is only a minute’s walk from the soft, sanded beach so Origins’ staff leverages the healing ocean environment. “Our island location adds a dimension to the Origins residential experience that is simply unavailable elsewhere. Having the beach at our backdoor is wonderfully therapeutic. We regularly utilize the beach for various activities such as sunrise meditation group, spiritual discussions and exercise,” said Henry Rodriguez, one of the Program Directors at Origins.
The Center itself is immaculate with Southwest villa-style architecture and spacious rooms that surround a large tropical courtyard and swimming pool. A true sense of community and healing abounds at Origins. Fountains and beautiful foliage envelop the property and the courtyard setting ensures a calm, private and secure place for residents to begin their spiritual journey into recovery. Each oversized room has distinctive Southwestern decor with hand-painted tiling and intricate attention paid to detail. On campus, residents benefit from various classrooms, meeting rooms and gathering spaces. Other amenities include meditation coves and a state-of-the-art physical fitness center with a personal trainer on staff. Additionally, full dining facilities, including two large kitchens, help the full-time executive chef serve the entire Origins’ community nutritionally-balanced meals every day. The property is gated with high walls to prevent external traffic or visibility creating a self-contained environment fostering wellness and growth for all.
Origins Recovery Centers’ soon-to-open, urban-themed facility, known as the “Mansion”, is located in exclusive Westchester County, New York. Situated in a grand luxury estate built in 1900, this historic manor encompasses over 10,000 square feet of elegant living space. Situated on 5½ private acres, the campus is a convenient 50 minutes north of Manhattan and is in easy reach of the New York area’s extensive medical resources. The Company’s winning program, The Origins Experience™ is offered at all of the Origins facilities. Origins will be the only luxury men’s recovery center on the Eastern seaboard that offers a rigorous 12-Step based program, an approach truly needed on the East Coast. Origins proudly opens the Mansion for residency in early in 2010.
