We offer our clients distinctive services to aid them in their journey toward recovery and rehabilitation. These services often encompass all psycho-social arenas of daily living, from housing to group support, and job training to socialization. Some of the benefits of a recovery community may be unacknowledged by clients, until leaving the sober living house, and many clients are surprised by the support and assistance that they receive.
Clients participating in the residential treatment programs for drug and alcohol dependence will have reliable transportation to support groups, job interviews, work, appointments — practically anywhere that they need to be! Furthermore, the clean and comfortable vehicles are not going to stigmatize the clients, as a shuttle or some modes may evoke. This allows clients in treatment to begin planning and working toward lives outside of the residence, which makes for a far simpler transition when leaving treatment.
Many clients report that the services and amenities in our residential treatment facilities surpasses any place that they have lived previously. Our men are housed in beautiful accommodations, and the typical lodging includes such items as: recreation on-site, large televisions, group outings and day-trips, modern and high-end kitchens, comfortable outdoor living spaces, and scrumptious meals. As a part of their stay our men are able to take advantage of free transportation to work, treatment appointments, and other destinations.
The services provided at residential living treatment include those that foster and maintain job opportunities and are designed to support the client as they transition back into the community. Need help creating a resume? Staff are on hand to provide their expertise and time to assist. Need a ride to a job interview? That is something that is anticipated and supported during this treatment modality. There is a feeling of accomplishment that comes with contributing in a work-place and the independence garnered. Furthermore, it is easier to adjust to life on the job and in the world outside the doors of residential living, when clients know that there is a whole team waiting and wanting to assist and see the client succeed.
One of the most widely used forms of therapy is Outpatient Treatment. This is a type of psychiatric treatment where a patient seeks out the help of a mental health provider for a specific problem, diagnosis or issue and they see the therapist or counselor on a schedule. Typically a session with a therapist is 45 minutes to an hour long. A person can be seen weekly, several times a week or as little as once a month depending upon the severity of the problem or issue.
The actual session will vary depending upon the type of therapist you are visiting. You can see a psychologist, psychiatrist, marriage and family therapist, Licensed Clinical Social Worker or several other types of counselor. Each counselor has their own set of philosophies and training. Some therapists use a cognitive behavioral approach, others may use a psychoanalytic approach and there are many, many other approaches that may be employed. On the whole most outpatient therapy is done used “talk therapy”. This is when a person, couple or family sits with the mental health professional and they use a back-and-forth dialogue to start tackling a mental health diagnosis, issue being experienced or a specific problem. The therapist will work to guide the individual, couple or family and will often ask questions to get the dialogue moving forward.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Intensive Outpatient Treatment is a setting for those who have a more severe psychiatric diagnosis but may not warrant an in-patient setting. This type of treatment is often used for eating disorders or drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Typically an individual involved in this type of treatment can expect to participate between 8 and 12 hours each week.
One of the biggest benefits of this type of treatment is that most individuals can still go to school or work and receive their treatment in the morning or evening. This way they can continue leading their lives while also receiving their treatment. Another major benefit is the variety of treatment options. Instead of simply receiving cognitive behavioral therapy or group therapy or a 12-step program, in this setting an individual can receive a combination or several therapy protocols. This increases their chance of longer term healing.
The purpose of Intensive Outpatient Treatment is to provide counseling, support and in many cases the background of a 12-step program (like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous) to individuals battling an eating disorder or addiction. It is geared for individuals who either have completed the detoxification process or it is not necessary. Individuals attend treatment daily so they are receiving the benefits of daily therapy but not required to stay in an inpatient facility.
Most Intensive Outpatient Treatment facilities offer many different treatment options. The first is the support of a group setting. This might happen in traditional group therapy, which would be guided by a mental health professional. It can also be in the form of a 12-step program like AA or NA. These facilities also offer one-on-one counseling with a psychologist, psychiatrist or therapist. The mental health professional will often use talk therapy to help tackle an individual’s issues on a solo basis. Many of these outpatient facilities will also offer various trainings, like career or educational training. If the individual attending the Intensive Outpatient Treatment has family members affected by the eating disorder or addiction there are frequently family support groups as well.
Because of the variety of services available the rate of recovery is often very good. These treatment centers are seeing reduced rates of failed drug screening, higher rates of long-term sobriety and more success in work and family life. They have been shown to be an effective and supportive form of therapy for individuals who want to start healing and stay healthy long term.
Partial Hospitalization Program
The partial hospitalization program is a combination of at home help and visiting the treatment center for specific treatment. This form of treatment is used for both individuals suffering from mental conditions and those with addiction problems. There are many different benefits associated with the partial hospitalization program, which is why it is a valuable offering for you to consider.
The partial hospitalization program is going to allow your loved one to go to clinical for regular treatment services. This way, they are able to receive the necessary attention required and can still go about their daily routine.
