Restoring lives one step at a time

When patients leave our facility and re-engage in the normal patterns of life, we want them to be capable, confident, and prepared to succeed.
We know that it may seem simplistic, but the heart of addiction recovery is in the small, habitual things that we do every day. Letting home chores, communication in relationships, and finances slip can endanger addiction recovery because it adds unnecessary stress and makes patients feel like they are once again out of control and have no resources to help.
Effective Recovery Requires Confidence and Independence
Many people who suffer from addiction have long depended on others to get the normal business of their life done, or they’ve let things lag until the job of getting control again feels completely overwhelming. Taking control of your life, even if it’s in small things like monthly bills and meal planning, has a carry-over effect into every other part of a patient’s life.
We strive to teach life skills that will fuel a healthy, sober lifestyle for our patients.
Communication & Cognitive Adaptive Skills
Many people who turn to addiction don’t have internal resources that help them deal with stress, depression, or conflict. Although we’d like to think that once patients leave addiction recovery, their lives are free of the stresses and pressures that led them to substance abuse in the first case. However, that’s not true. Stress, disappointment, even grief are all a part of life, and it’s important to learn how to stay sober, even through the storms of life. Through both group therapy and one-on-one psychology, we help build habits and skills that help patients identify problems, communicate effectively, and find productive solutions for problems.
Health & Nutrition
Part of addiction recovery includes learning to effectively take care of the body. Personal habits will support health that fortifies the body against relapse, moderates mood, and continues to repair body systems that suffered during addiction and detox. Our exercise facilities and regularly allotted time allows patients to adopt an exercise regime that helps them regain health. Furthermore, nutritional therapy classes teach skills and basic nutrition principles that help patients fuel their bodies properly.
One of the most important steps once patients are out of recovery is either finding, or re-integrating into a workplace. Work of any form provides income, purpose, and self-confidence. We build patients’ professional skills through several different channels. Firstly, we require housekeeping chores that help patients focus on routine and practical skills. Secondly, through experiential therapy and outdoor activities, we expose patients to new environments and hobbies that help them explore new skills that they have or can acquire. Thirdly, basic psychotherapy sessions help our patients establish a plan and break it down into practical and achievable segments.
