Named after its founders – Joan and late Bob Maynord, Maynords Recovery Center has lead the way of substance abuse and addiction treatment services for 36 years. This rehab center’s 22-acre ranch is located near Yosemite National Forest. This is a family-owned operation, and the entire business has kept a family approach, full of understanding and care.
Maynords Recovery Center: Treatment, Programs, and Staff
Detoxification is a part of the Maynords treatment, and the detox center provides a living environment accompanied with many amenities which alleviate the entire process. During the detox, the clients reside in nicely decorated rooms and enjoy services of a private cook. The clinical staff is available throughout the day and provides 12-step meetings during the night. Counselors work with clients on developing a treatment plan which will include further steps in their recovery through residential program.
The average stay is about 28 days, built on a traditional mixture of group and individual therapy. Residents are requested to attend six 12-step meetings per week, in the premises as well as in the community.
During the stay, residents also attend courses in stress management and relapse prevention.
For those who wish to continue their treatment after completing their primary treatment program, there is sober living. This option is also intended for those who are involved in outpatient treatment program or psychotherapy. Therapy, treatment and formal counseling are not part of Maynords’ sober living routine. Sober living encourages clients to take responsibility for their own actions, and helps them in learning techniques that will help them handle inevitable stress. Clients enrolled in sober living are transferred to Dove Ridge or Sunshine Inn – sober living facilities. The requirements are different for both facilities, so clients should contact the living manager regarding which house suits them better.
Maynords’ 30-member staff includes certified addiction counselors and on-site medical staff, with around the clock oversight. Since this is a family business, the founder couple’s son is serving as the program director and their two daughters also work on-site.
