Facility Notes

Gentle Spirit is a proven drug treatment center for heroin and opiate addicts. This is a non-traditional sober living facility that works mostly with young male heroin addicts ages 18-35. Our treatment is different than the traditional brick and mortar centers for the following reasons: We do not shove a curriculum down the clients’ throat and each client is treated as an individual. The reason our program works is because there is not a 30 or 60 day time limit; most clients stay a minimum of six months to one year and leave with a very solid foundation. It is impossible to curb a disease that has taken years to develop in 30 or 60 days; and that is why we have such a high success rate. We also help clients detox without using Suboxen or Methadone and have been successful in getting long term clients on methadone completely free from methadone. If clients choose they may participate in our Native American spirituality program which many young men find very appealing. They may also choose to attend church with some of our staffers. This facility is very affordable for most families compared to the high cost of other treatment centers. Bob Atkins founded Gentle Spirit in 2006. It started as an idea on a porch one day that we can help addicts get clean without the bureaucratic crap, red tape, and all the obstacles society puts in an addicts’ way of getting long term clean time. Bob has been clean for over 12 ½ years, but he used drugs for 30 years. He had to hit his bottom at the age of 43 before he sought help. Now with a life time of experience, unconditional love for addicts, and the help of a loving, caring Higher Power; Bob and his associates have begun doing the impossible: setting young men free from the horrors of addiction.
