Proven Process

Pinnacle Peak Recovery offers people with substance use disorders a full range of recovery programming and treatment options from detox to aftercare. By understanding that no two people, and therefore no two addictions are the same, we are able to craft a treatment process that goes beyond what most providers offer, creating an environment with a proven track record for success that other treatment facilities cannot match.

Why Does Tracking Progress Matter?

Here at Pinnacle Peak, we use our clinical outcomes data to steer not only singular patient care planning but as a guide for our entire clinical practice. At the patient level, tracking progress allows staff and patients to see success, or lack thereof,  in real-time and adjust the course of care accordingly. Flexible, actively monitored, and tailored care plans have been shown to be more successful in ensuring long-term recovery as well as reducing patient drop-out rates.

Additionally, by collecting longitudinal clinical outcomes and progress data, Pinnacle Peak has been able to guide the course of our programming and develop our services to meet and exceed industry standards. By examining the places where our programming succeeds and where it needs improvement, we have been able to adjust our clinical management, and staffing, as well as address any issues that may arise early and proactively. Collecting this type of data can also provide data sets that can be combined with other similar clinical data in order to do research within academia, and can even be indicative of the current substance use clinical culture. Tracking progress and clinical outcomes is beneficial from the single patient all the way to the greater systemic level. 

Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT)

The road to recovery can be difficult for people with substance use disorders. Many times people find themselves frustrated, angry, and building resentment towards their recovery process when they do not feel like their treatment is working for them or that they are not being listened to. This can lead to high rates of client drop-out and relapse. This is why Pinnacle Peak Recovery utilized the clinical practice of Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT) in our client care. 

FIT is the evidence-based practice of gathering real-time feedback and information from clients about their care and treatment experiences so that those experiences may not only be validated but so that they may affect the course of the clients’ care. FIT enhances the client-therapist relationship and can give clients an increased feeling of control and ownership over their recovery. This leads to higher rates of client success and overall happiness with their care.

Our Process

Pinnacle Peak has developed an evidence-based care continuum that not only addresses clients wherever they are in their journey to recovery but also gives them the best chance at lasting recovery.

Our proven process consists of eight steps and is what Pinnacle Peak structures its programming around. Clients might use all or only a few of these steps depending on their level of need and addiction severity. Regardless of where you fall on the continuum, it can be helpful to understand how these steps fit together and where they fit into the journey towards recovering from substance use disorder.

Step One - Pre Screen: During our pre-screening process, we contact potential clients, verify their insurance and payment methods, give pre-screening assessments, and then get clinical and medical approval for clients to receive treatment at Pinnacle Peak.

Step Two - Intake: During intake, we try to make sure that our clients know what to expect and are comfortable at Pinnacle Peak. During this time they will complete an orientation, receive a facility tour, receive a clinical evaluation, and have a treatment plan developed. During this time we encourage our clients to ask questions and try to make sure that they are as informed, prepared, and as comfortable as they can be.

Step Three - Detox: Arguably one of the most difficult parts of recovery, Pinnacle Peak offers 24-hour mental health and medical services to our clients in detox as well as catered meals and medication management. 

Step Four - Residential: After detox, Pinnacle Peak offers clients structured residential care with comprehensive clinical programming, 24-hour care, catered meals, and access to both medical and mental health professionals should the need arise. 

Step Five - Day Treatment (PHP): We offer full-day programming five days a week with our day treatment. With this treatment option, Pinnacle Peak offers supportive housing, individual outpatient therapy, case management, and access to both mental health and medical professionals while in treatment. 

Step Six - Intensive Outpatient (IOP): Our intensive outpatient care offers clients intensive care, supportive housing, and therapy for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, scheduled in the morning hours. 

Step Seven - Evening Intensive Outpatient (EIOP): Our intensive outpatient care offers clients intensive care, supportive housing, and therapy for 3 hours a day, 3 days a week, scheduled in the evening hours. 

Step Eight - Continued Care and Support: Even after our clients leave Pinnacle Peak, we offer them support services to help them stay on track, maintain their recovery, and achieve their goals. Without continued care, we provide a Pinnacle Peak Alumni Program, integrated care services, as well as The Pinnacle Peak Recovery Guarantee.

How We Define Success

There are a lot of different ways to measure successful treatment. At Pinnacle Peak Recovery we define long-term success by making it to one year of continuous sobriety.

Our Outcomes

At Pinnacle Peak, we don’t call our continuum of care a “Proven Process” without good reason. Our outcomes data has shown that when clients follow our proven process, they have a lower chance of relapse and an increased opportunity to achieve long-term recovery. Statistically, there is at least a 40% chance that people recovering from substance use disorders will relapse. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, addiction has a similar relapse rate to some other chronic conditions.

Currently, the relapse rates for these chronic conditions, including addiction, are as follows:

  • Asthma: 50-70%
  • Addiction: 40-60%
  • Hypertension: 50-70%
  • Type 1 Diabetes: 30-50%

At Pinnacle Peak, those who joined our program but did not finish only had a 26% recovery success rate while those who have successfully completed our program had a 69% long-term success rate. At Pinnacle Peak, we do not view relapse as a failure of treatment, only the indication that a client was not receiving the right care for them and that we now have the challenge to find them a treatment plan that will meet their needs and goals. 

How We Track Progress

Tracking our clients' progress throughout recovery is important in addressing client outcomes and the outcomes of our entire clinic. Here at Pinnacle Peak, we utilize market-leading innovations to track our patient and facility outcomes data so that we can understand what is working for clients on an individual basis, as well as how our program can adjust its best practices to meet the needs of our clientele.
