Our philosophy is grounded in a multidisciplinary approach by implementing the highest standards in medical and clinical care. We also encourage a strong 12-Step philosophy along with true holistic treatment modalities including art therapy, music therapy, chiropractic, yoga & meditation, and nutrient-rich organic food.
We take great pride in customizing each patient’s treatment experience on an individualized basis. By utilizing a proprietary approach called Enlightened Recovery, we evaluate each client’s specific needs in various areas of their life and then bring a focus to the areas which require attention. This brings balance to the intersection of biological, social, and psychological needs for each client case-by-case.
We understand that recovery is often a lifelong process, so we are committed to the continuation of treatment, peer support, and outcomes analysis through our alumni follow up and recovery coaching program.
From the first phone call, to a lifetime of support, we pride ourselves on cultivating a community of recovery resources to all whose lives have been touched by addiction. By encouraging independence, stability, spiritual rejuvenation, and various holistic offerings, the Enlightened Solutions Family is proud to embody what it truly means to be a Recovery Community.
Chief Executive Officer
Jennifer Hansen went from living on the street with a $300-a-day heroin habit to becoming a role model and advocate for those struggling with substance abuse issues. Through her non-profit organization, The Hansen Foundation, she has founded halfway houses and sober living facilities for men and women alike. Jennifer is also a certified yoga instructor, and follows a holistic way of life through organic eating, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and herbal remedies. Her personal experiences taught her that recovery does not end after short-term rehabilitation, and that more resources are necessary to ensure long-term stability and growth. The Hansen Foundation was the beginning, and through Enlightened Solutions, Jennifer seeks to continue filling this void and reaching out to addicts in need. Her experience and deep knowledge of holistic living guides us in providing therapies that teach our clients to care for the earth they live on so that it can provide healing properties for them during recovery and throughout their healthy, conscious lives.
