The Still Waters facility is a converted private residence nestled in the rolling hills of Perry County near the Buffalo River, amidst large tracts of rural forest and pasture lands. Within this 35-acre retreat, a main house provides dining services, meeting rooms, offices and housing for counseling staff. A four-room guesthouse near the heated pool and pool house can accommodate eight residents, who occupy semi-private rooms with private baths. Close by and down the drive is the cottage, which has capacity for six residents in semi-private accommodations with private baths, plus a living room and laundry facilities. Residents can meditate in the extensive gardens or the gazebo next to the creek.
Still Waters is not a traditional treatment program, we are a 12-step immersion program. Our approach to recovery is based on the concept of Fellowship and the Spiritual Principles of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. We believe by developing strong ties with the 12-step community the chances of success increase exponentially. We’ve also developed a simple way to guarantee daily sobriety, called P.S.A.L.M.S™ w/ Service. 1) Prayer/Meditation, 2) Steps, 3) Ask for Help, 4) Literature, 5) Meeting, 6) Sponsor, 7) Service. Do these 7 things every day and your daily sobriety is guaranteed.
