When living with a substance use disorder, an individuals relationships with family and the community, educational and vocational skills, and social functioning often become strained and compromised. In addition to providing the first real opportunity for those struggling with a substance use disorder to learn the behavioral skills, attitudes and values associated with healthy living, our gender specific program also allow us to address the unique treatment needs that men and women have. Our model uses life-skills activities, group processes and peer influence, providing individuals the opportunity to learn and develop more effective coping and social skills necessary to achieve successful and long term recovery.
Our adult residential treatment programs provides 24 hour care at our site for up to six months. The focus is on helping the men and women in treatment relearn or re-establish healthy functioning, skills, and values as well as to regain physical and emotional health. Our program also encourages the involvement of friends and family in the journey to recovery. Since a substance use disorder and associated recovery are very much interconnected with family and friends, we encourage them to visit during specified days and times while their loved one is in treatment.
Throughout the program, a number of services to support recovery are available based on individual need “ many onsite – including:
Educational services including literacy (TABE) testing, a GED program, access to adult technical and educational programs, and an onsite food service certification training program.
Vocational services including counseling, interviewing coaching, resume writing and job application/placement services.
Family education, child care, medical care, assistance with applications for public assistance and county health plan coverage, transportation to appointments in the community.
Our program is comprised of phases which provide individuals the opportunity to progress in treatment by meeting specific goals. While all phases include individual counseling, group therapy, and random drug screens, the Intensive Treatment phase also includes vocational training, work readiness training, employment referral, and education regarding identification of consequences of alcohol and drug use.
After the Intensive Treatment phase, the Employment/Reentry phase includes a more defined focus on the development and enhancement of Life Skills (including budgeting, interviewing & good work practices), the development of problem solving skills and interpersonal skills, and the application of principles to effect personal change in thinking, attitude & actions. This phase continues to increase the individuals responsibility to his or herself and family, by beginning to integrate skills learned into their life. This phase also includes having the individual seek employment, find housing, and integrate recreational activities, with an additional focus on allowing clients the time to experience stressful new situations while under the guidance and support of a counselor. As they progress through treatment, individuals will be encouraged to keep practicing their new, healthy behaviors while adjusting, and to develop a support network that will serve them after they leave the program.
