Something New on the Horizon for Those Suffering With Addictions
There is a humble little program happening about four times a year on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, USA, where intriguing and potentially life changing events are going on. Mark Turansky, CSAC, Addictions Specialist and Executive Director of New Horizons Counseling, offers a unique recovery program called “Treatment Camp” for those struggling with the slavery of addictive behavior.
In 2012, Mark released the book: “Figure it, Face it & Fix it – Your surprising solution to addiction and substance abuse” where the success principles of the New Horizons approach are revealed.
In a world where we expect certain outcomes based on logic, and are often hard-pressed to be convinced of new ideas, counter-intuitive programs like New Horizons are both surprising and inspiring. The New Horizons approach does indeed follow logical lines of thought and reason, based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (C.B.T.). C.B.T., in a nut shell, means if you change your thinking you can change your behavior. It is not a new idea, by any means; but with this fresh, insightful approach, the New Horizons recovery program hits the nail on the head for giving those struggling with addiction the tools to face their challenge squarely, and gain control over their lives once again.
If you read the testimonials, participants are pleasantly surprised by Treatment Camp, and the New Horizons approach. Sometimes answers come from unlikely or unexpected sources. One might especially like the quote that Mark has on his website: “We are not here to judge you; we are here to help you.” This is the overall feeling one can read from hearing testimonials from those who have been through this program, and the people involved. If you are at your wits end, tired of hurting yourself and the ones you love because of your addiction, consider the New Horizons recovery program. It may surprise you.
Here is what you can expect: your own private room/bathroom, great food and a small group atmosphere that facilitates intimate discussion and a “hands on” personalized approach. There is a great mixture of intensive work, group fun activities and free time. Plus, and here is the bonus, anyone who attends Treatment Camp is automatically enrolled in the unlimited, lifetime, group support follow up that continues after the camp is completed.
New Horizons next Treatment Camp begins December 4th through December 9th, 2016. Call 808-484-1000 for more information or log onto www.newhorizonshawaii.com and click on the “treatment and recovery” menu tab.
