Seminars and workshops are part of the clinical programming that engages our patients, with attention to our Person Centered approach and Trauma Informed Care.
Here is a breakdown of what some seminars and workshops are available to our patients while in our drug and alcohol rehab programs:
A large component of our approach to providing alcohol and drug addiction help is to deliver regular group therapy.
The 12-step model is only one part of the comprehensive support that we provide. Clients are encouraged to attend 12 step meetings in the surrounding communities. Clients do not have to follow the 12 step model in our treatment program
Leadership workshops help develop strength-based characteristics. Our alcohol and drug rehab programs are unique in showing patients ways to apply those skills to a life in recovery and to enhance relationships. We teach patients how to work well with others, apply controlled thinking and positive attitude, and strengthen their ability to go the extra mile. The seminars use various learning modalities including activities, worksheets and discussion questions.
Assessment plays a critical role in developing an effective, personalized care plan. Following the guidelines of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, our licensed clinicians perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine each patients’s specific needs.
This biopsychosocial evaluation gather information about the following:
Medical Symptoms & History
We will assess whether our patient is suffering any physical illness, independent of or as a result of substance abuse. Our clinicians address medical problems early on, providing treatment to enhance recovery and prevent medical complications.
Here, we will determine the nature of the addiction. Our clinicians gather a full report on the substances used, prior efforts to quit, effects of use, and associated problems.
Psychiatric of Psychological Symptoms & History
Our clinicians will look for psychiatric illnesses or symptoms of co-occurring disorders, such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD to fully address these problems in our patient’s care.
Family and/or Employment Issues
Our team will address the repercussions of addiction that our patient may be experiencing. We will provide services or referrals for life skills training or employment issues that poise you for a life of recovery well beyond your stay.
Following these assessments, our team will create a detailed report of our patient’s health, helping to inform our clinical treatment plan.
Upon completion of our various drug and alcohol evaluations, our team will develop the patient’s personalized treatment. The treatment plan is a customized clinical treatment program based on the individual patient’s needs, under the guidance of a licensed clinician and medical director.
A patient’s treatment may include:
Medications in Treatment
One on one therapy with a case manager, doctor or therapist is an effective practice for alcohol and drug addiction help and treatment.
Addiction affects the entire family.
We are continuing to build on our comprehensive Family Workshop. We believe that treating the whole family is essential to recovery.
Our Family Systems workshops assist the patient in developing healthy relationships, enhancing communication skills, identifying family roles, and learning how to conquer shame within the family.
