Sober College Helps Young Adults Recover from Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Sober College’s residential treatment program has been helping young adults age 17-26 recover from drug and alcohol addiction for over six years. The development of the Sober College curriculum came about after years of extensive research by professionals in the field of addiction and treatment of young adults.

Historically young adults, ages 17-26, have been placed in addiction treatment programs with anyone over the age of 18. Sober College founder, Robert Pfeifer, was working in the field of addiction and saw the need for specialized addiction treatment centers for the young adult population.

Upon admission to Sober College, each student is evaluated by our Academic and Clinical Teams to determine their personal treatment plan. Each student has their own personal treatment team consisting of a licensed or licensed eligible therapist, psychiatrist, drug and alcohol counselor, neuropsychologist, academic coach, and house manager. Weekly treatment team meetings are held to ensure that each client is receiving the best, and most up-to-date care available. As each student grows and changes during their time at Sober College, our treatment team adjusts their treatment plan accordingly. The students treatment team moves with them through the different phases of the Sober College program (apart from the counselor and house manager) helping the student to develop true, lasting relationships with their staff as well as their peers.

For over seven years Sober College has been helping young adults struggling with substance abuse and addiction. Many of the housing staff at Sober College, or mentors, went through the Sober College program, and have developed the innate ability to utilize their own experience to help the current students. Students participate in both traditional and nontraditional, individual and group therapy, and we encourage all students to participate in our Experiential Therapy activities such as surfing, indoor skydiving, equine, and trapeze.
