THE WILDWOOD FARM PROGRAM

Built in 1813, the Wildwood Farmhouse is a luxury sober house with all the comforts of home, including single and double bedrooms fitted with WiFi and state-of-the-art climate control. The decor, furnishings, and fixtures of the farmhouse are of the highest quality in a traditional farmhouse-chic style. The objective of the sober house is to make a safe, comfortable home for the LGBTQ+ person in need of supportive services in establishing a successful recovery plan. The typical stay at the farm is 3, 6 and 12 months, however, other arrangements are possible.

As a sober house for the person seeking a change of direction in life, the Wildwood Farm Program is based on the foundation of the findings and directives of SAMHSA, the Federal Government’s Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Thomas Geiger, is the resident Farm Program Manager offering a 24-hour supportive program of adventure based activities and therapies.

“Deep down, every person suffering from addiction wants a sober life full of love, happiness, and hope.”

– Dr. Mike Hinkley

STAYING AT WILDWOOD

As part of their stay, ​Farm residents will participate in outpatient groups and individual counseling sessions as part of their treatment plan. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a central tenant of the groups and individual work at Wildwood Farm. CBT is a preferred treatment that helps the person in treatment recognize and stop acting on negative patterns of thinking and behavior.  Yes, it takes time and it depends on the willingness of the individual client’s motivation for change.  SAMHSA reports: “Cognitive-behavioral therapy might help a person be aware of the stressors, situations, and feelings that lead to substance use so that the person can avoid them or act differently when they occur.”

​For the client that lacks the motivation to make needed changes, Dr. Hinkley employs Motivational Interviewing Therapy (MIT), which calls for the person to experience the negative side of past choices and find an interior desire to avoid past negative consequences of the addictive thinking, behaviors, and use. In a relatively short period of treatment, an individual can find a new motivation based on their own belief structure and desires for the future.
