Recovery Happens and Restoration: The Distinguishing Differences

Recovery Happens will offer one service:

  1. Intensive out-patient therapy paid for via private pay and with insurance contracts. Since the formation of Restoration, Recovery Happens will no longer offer sliding scale or pro-bono services. Recovery Happens will continue to serve the communities where we have offices – Fair Oaks/Sacramento County (Head Quarters), Roseville/Placer County, Davis/Yolo County, Walnut Creek/Contra Costa County, with a new office opening in November 2019, San Rafael/Marin County. Recovery Happens website will continue to identify as a provider of intensive out-patient therapy for individuals (teens and adults) and their families in all these cities.


Restoration will be introduced to the community as providing three services:

  1. Intensive out-patient therapy for those without funding through a sliding scale fee, and a no cost options to those families who qualify
  2. Community education forums at public/private schools, youth and collegiate sports clubs, churches, universities, hospitals, coalitions, community resource fairs, prisons, jails, homeless programs, law enforcement agencies, foster home agencies, group home agencies, boys/girls’ philanthropic groups, and county agencies
  3. Equine therapy for those in the intensive out-patient program who would benefit through this therapeutic specialization. This division of Restoration is led by 2 therapists that are certified by the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA), which is the industry leader in certifying equine therapists. Many people have difficulty getting sobriety/recovery through people/therapists as primary agents to assist in their change. Reaching a population that struggles with attachment and trauma, through equine therapy, is Restoration’s mission to help those who would be better served by this specialization.

Restoration’s three departments; IOP treatment, community education, and equine therapy will be part of the solution in the fight for health, wellness and recovery in our communities. The communities we currently serve are struggling to offer treatment to those who are without funding and the need for intensive out-patient treatment continues to rise in part due to the increase of THC in marijuana from 2-3 % THC to 74%-94% THC in vaping marijuana. Insurance companies are rejecting primary marijuana addiction diagnosis and families are seeing significant decline in mental health with marijuana addiction. The increase in opiate addiction is another specific population where there is identified need for IOP treatment for those without financial means. Our long-standing relationships and collaboration with our local medical doctors prescribing anti-craving medications will benefit our clients. This problem indicates a greater need for Restoration’s services. Our local teens and parents are in need of preventive education about the vaping product industry that is targeting the youth and college age adults. Schools are calling weekly with questions about how to address this in their schools with the parents and other local coalitions trying to get the education to the community. Finally, our ability to offer alternatives to typical talk therapy will give our clients the opportunity to find recovery through equine therapy.

Every moment along this journey has led to a philosophy for Julie of One Day at A Time, Everything is Figureoutable, and all things happen for a reason. Today, Julie’s son is thriving and also working his program one day at a time as a sophomore at University of Arizona and is celebrating more than 2 years of sobriety.

Julie is excited and feels fortunate to be a part of the Restoration board of directors and is looking forward to helping others with their journey of recovery as a parent resource and advocate.
