For those who are assessed upon intake as chemically dependent, Inpatient Residential Support is often necessary to provide the medical and psychological treatment associated with detoxing and dealing with the early challenges associated with withdrawal. Our Addictionologist, in concert with the clinical team and program staff combine their professional skills to provide clinical interventions that have proven to be most effective in supporting those who have become chemically dependent.
We provide live in 24-hour female inpatient residential and male inpatient residential facilities. Thus, residential treatment is gender specific in the early stages of post acute withdrawal in order to focus upon gender specific factors essential in early recovery. Essential aspects of inpatient residential care is to address psychiatric and medical concerns that may require pharmacological support (e.g. depression, anxiety, diabetes, hypertension, etc.), as well as to educate both client and family members about the disease of addiction and disease management, brain and psychological healing, recovery capital, as well as begin to be more aware of community based oriented systems of care that support those in recovery.
It is within inpatient residential segment of care that those in early recovery gain insight and develop coping skills through clinically driven experiential activities, educational groups, and clinically driven process groups. As participants are exposed to new and unique, sensory rich, emotional laden experiences with an element of perceived risk, they begin to acquire recovery capital that further supports sustained sobriety and vital life skills. Therapeutic exposure includes meeting with master’s level clinicians two times a week and meeting once a week with a substance abuse counselor. Recovery efforts are supported by the 12 Steps of AA, where key principles characterize each patients efforts to manage the disease of addiction and pursue a life of meaning and purpose.
