Skyline Recovery in Bend, Oregon is accepting young adults for our outpatient recovery support services and our men’s transitional living program. The mission is to set young adults (18-26) on a path of recovery from substances, trauma and life difficulties. The seasoned team of veterans from the treatment and behavioral healthcare industry have created a program that utilizes 12-step recovery, sober coaching, cutting edge clinical modalities, family work, rites of passage experiences, and connection with a community of like-minded peers to navigate this transition. The young adults who come to Skyline have successfully completed or attended a primary level of treatment or intervention, such as Wilderness Therapy, and are ready to start learning how to live an independent life.
The founders of Skyline Recovery have a combined 30 years of experience helping young adults navigate a life of recovery and wellness. Patrick Devlin, co-founder and clinical team member, LCSW, CADC-II, has worked as a therapist and program director with young adults, and has led rights of passage ceremonies for nearly a decade. Brennon Moore, co-founder and clinical team member, LPC, CTT, CADC-II, is a therapist, published author and national speaker in the field of childhood trauma and addiction. Dustin Westover, co-founder, mentor and operations director, is a certified recovery coach and life skills mentor who has worked with young adults all over the country, garnering a reputation for succeeding with the most resistant. “We created this transitional living program for young adults in Bend because we wanted them to be excited about a life in recovery. Whether it’s the availability of both a major university and a community college to pursue academic goals, or the vast wilderness to explore personal dreams, Bend is the perfect community for young adults to heal from their past, to develop a new tribe of supportive peers, and learn how to live life fully,” said Brennon Moore.
The residents at Skyline Recovery live in houses that have spacious shared and private rooms and a maxium of 5 people in the house to ensure a truly individualized and focused experience. Clinical offices are a short walk from the home and modalities such as EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, brain spotting, clinical hypnosis, DBT, CBT and other experiential and nature-based approaches are used to promote deeper healing and growth. Client housing is also a 5-minute walk from downtown and 15-minute walk from Central Oregon Community College and the new 4-year expansion of Oregon State University Cascades. It is also 2-minute walk from the beautiful Deschutes river and its miles of trails and white water rafting. And just a 30-minute drive from Mount Bachelor and some of the nation's best skiing, snowboarding and mountain biking. In 2006 Bend was named the best trail running city by Outside magazine.
The team is excited to utilize the livability of Bend because, according to the US Census bureau in 2017, Bend is at No. 6 on the bureau's list of the fastest-growing American cities. “Promoting and encouraging a healthy lifestyle is the culture in Bend, Oregon. It has the feel of a small town with all the amenities of a city. Also with a robust recovery community and being surrounded by snow-capped mountains, peaceful rivers and some of the best skiing and mountain biking the country, Bend makes for a great home to begin and thrive in the journey of healing,” said Dustin Westover.
