Alcohol and Drug Treatment

Philosophy


We believe people need to be treated as individuals and, as such, we  avoid a “one size fits all” approach. We focus on tailoring a treatment  program to each individual that is specific to his or her needs. We  embrace clients with circumstances that are not typically accepted or  even addressed in other treatment programs. We know that substance abuse is a coping problem that at one time in a  person’s life did not cause difficulty and was quite helpful in taking  the edge off difficult times and problems. The progressive nature of  addiction eventually led to enough problems that the substance use  itself became the primary problem and eroded a high quality of life.  Using a thorough assessment we help identify the appropriate level of  care specific to the needs of the individual.

Beyond 12 steps


We provide an alternative treatment process using best practices  counseling approaches, ongoing clinical consultation and training, and  models of counseling known as Stages Of Change, Motivational Enhancement  Dialectical Behavorial Therapy and Cognitive Behavorial Therapy. Individuals who seek our help are  motivated, want something different and they desire to be with others  who are in treatment because they want to change their lives. We  carefully screen potential clients to enable us to identify those  individuals who are ready to make a personal investment in their  recovery and future. These clients are not only ready to make positive  changes in their lives, but also add significant value to others in our  group therapy sessions through their insight and life lessons.

Creating a Balance Lifestyle


We empower people in the assessment process by taking time to listen  and gather a careful history that may take more than one session to  complete. By the end of that process we are able to offer more than one  recommendation for treatment and counseling. Our treatment approach is  informational and holistic and focuses on a multitude of topics  essential to developing insight and awareness. Counseling is done  respectfully, free of heavy-handed confrontation and pressure to join a  particular belief system. We strongly encourage a balanced lifestyle  during the recovery process, and work closely with our clients and their  partners to develop a multi-pronged approach that is client-specific,  and includes mental, emotional, spiritual and physical recovery. 

Taking Control of Your Life


Preparing a person to learn and grow while in alcohol and drug  treatment starts with the process of exploring patterns of behavior and  themes prevalent in one’s life. As awareness of these themes emerges a  person feels empowered and motivated to redirect their life. Our groups  provide more support for redirecting one’s life with the practice of a  mindfulness exercise, a valuable tool in reducing relapse. Mindfulness  is the practice of focusing the mind. When a person is able to shift  from feelings of guilt, shame or remorse associated with one’s past or  from fear and anxiety that come with over focus on the future and take  command of their minds a settled mind begins to emerge.

Preventing Relapse


Our arsenal in strengthening against relapse continues with people  learning to be effective in relationships, which begins with identifying  personal boundaries. Learning to more effectively manage intense  emotions in their relationships helps people become confident in dealing  with uncomfortable feelings such as anger, abandonment and impatience  that contribute to low self esteem. Relapses erode excitement for  recovery over time. The more a person is able to tolerate difficult  emotions in hard times the more capable a person feels to ride out  distressing thoughts and feelings towards a state that is less  upsetting, which makes the hard times easier to get through. A strong  mind, a strengthened will and a culture of awareness and personal growth  that begins in treatment are steps towards lasting and positive change.
