About Us

Peace Club is a collection of individuals - held together by a love for people and their stories. We’re taking what’s proven to work in Opioid recovery, leaving the parts that don’t work behind, and replacing it with something fresh and creative.

We help individuals and communities recover from opioid addiction

Peace Club was started out of necessity. Too many of our friends and neighbors have died from opioid related deaths or find themselves stuck in a cycle of dependency. Our goal is to take the best from the addiction industry and add the pieces we believe are missing: quality over convenience, innovation over convention, and people over profits.

 

 

This is what recovery with us looks like

1. Evidence Based Therapy

Medication-Assisted Treatment: Vivitrol and Aggressive Suboxone Tapers. Treatment for people on Suboxone and Methadone treatment. EMDR and Accelerated Resolution Therapy for trauma issues. Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention.

2. Transformational
Experiences & Practices

Free-diving retreats, Central American pilgrimages, surfing lessons, and outdoor adventures. 

3. Beautiful Spaces

The spaces we spend our time in impact how we feel. This doesn’t change during recovery. We’ve created spaces you can rest and be inspired in so you can focus on recovery.

Relationship-Centered Treatment

Above all: We genuinely care about people. To this end, we believe truly caring for people requires keeping things small and relationship-centered. The maximum number of people in any group or residence is 10.

Relationship-centered treatment allows us to meet your actual needs, treat you as an individual, and prevent cookie-cutter programming. All activities, treatment, and programs are gender-specific and rooted in the philosophy that change happens through relationships and experiences... not purely at a cognitive level.

Through experiences the power of relationships are formed, and through relationships our wounds and destructive tendencies are healed.
