What We Believe

If you can’t tell by now, we’re a tribe, a family. All of us wince when we have to describe ourselves as a recovery program because of the social stigma sees of going to ‘rehab’. The Academy is an Elite Training for Life Change.  We aren’t interested in ‘recovering’ but instead we go above and beyond what we have imaged or believed was possible because our limiting beliefs about ourselves is at the heart of what brought us to Crossing the Jordan.

 A more suitable description would be ‘tribe’. We have structure, and we follow a strong course curriculum with five stages, each one adding more responsibility and expectations for growth. We run a tight ship, and yes, you’ll get the random drug testing, parenting courses, groups, case management, one-on-one meetings, addiction education, housing, job training, workshops, strong accountability, and all the standards you would expect in a ‘program,’ but this place…well, it’s like nothing you have ever seen.  Think elite, excellence…offering the best in cutting-edge, life change training and business opportunities.

 

We focus on developing leaders in the community.  We operate with excellence and we all treat this organization as our own. The seeds we sow into our operation are an opportunity for the next parent and child to start over. We recognize that when just one family member chooses to change, we’re impacting the entire family. We encourage each person to give their greatest contribution to their family, tribe and community, and we walk alongside each person as they discover what that means.

We serve in local events for the purpose of building relationships and offering opportunities to lead by example. We are intentional about bringing joy, laughter, power and passion everywhere we go.  We create the time and space to see the bigger picture and we appreciate how important our contribution is in the world. We each have a voice and something to give. Our gifts to the world are worthy to be acknowledged.

Health and wellness is a big deal to us. Fitness is an essential part of getting well. Cross-fit training, local hikes and brisk walks are a part of our weekly schedule. It’s good for the body, clears the mind and is refreshing for the soul. It might be a little tough at first, but we really dig healing ourselves from the inside out AND the outside in.

We go on family vacations to places like Tahoe and Sunsplash Water Slides. We take hiking trips to the Trinity Alps. We attend conferences, outside trainings, and weekend retreats.  We believe that you can learn in a classroom but it doesn’t stick unless you experience it.  Add zip-lining, graduate skydiving trips, and mountain climbing to the mix and you will see we’re committed to living life fully.  We work hard, but play harder.

Our main women and children’s home allows for 35 beds and it’s located on a beautifully landscaped acre of property. Three of our men’s homes, an additional 50 beds, happen to be some of the very few in the country that allow fathers to have their children live with them full time. That means so much to us.  Fathers getting to be fathers with support and guidance. Each space is treated and designed like a family home, with play structures and outdoor living. Creating healthy habits and reinforcing them into our daily routines is critical, and allows for each home to become a safe and loving space.
