substance abuse treatment

Our Adult Men and Women’s Alcohol & Drug rehab program was designed to address the needs of a more mature, professional clientele, whose addiction is getting in the way of being a successful member of their community or being a better, more present, spouse for their loved one or parent for their children. We understand that working adults have a busy life and many responsibilities which lead them to falsely assume there can be no time for treatment.

The reality is: If your drug or alcohol addiction is getting in the way of your life…the job, spouse, friends and career will be gone if you DON’T address the problem at hand. The caring professionals at A Sober Way Home will help you manage your life outside of Substance Abuse treatment, so you can focus on getting well. We want to help you be the best employee, mother, father, spouse and friend that you can possibly be. We want to help you “rejoin” your own life!

Program Stages 

During the stabilization period, the client is physically “stabilized” and any necessary detox is addressed. A comprehensive assessment will be performed and the Clinical Director will select the appropriate therapist for the individual based on rapport potential and skill set/specific training as related to the client’s challenges. Clients will begin to meet with their primary care therapist and begin attending groups. The facility and staff will get familiar with the unique needs and characteristics of the client. During foundation building, the client engages in specific treatment goals, and participates in their individualized treatment plan.

Accountability and acceptance are highlighted as the process of addressing and understanding the consequences of addiction and co-occurring disorders are exposed and processed. As the client begins to feel and experience emotions more clearly they are guided through work surrounding anger, denial, shame and guilt. The basic principles of a 12 step foundation are introduced and the client is drawn into the therapeutic process. The focus is placed on understanding the cycle of addiction, identifying triggers and developing new coping skills. Dual Diagnosis conditions and issues are addressed. The ground work for family systems work is established.

During this stage the client is pulled deeper into more advanced 12 step work and the therapeutic process. Topics addressed are suitable for a client with a period of abstinence and recovery. Relationships and boundaries are examined and the client is educated on identifying appropriate and healthy communication. We begin addressing relapse prevention more specifically and offer life skills and guidelines for a healthy, new lifestyle. At this stage, grief and trauma work can be addressed, and underlying issues can be further explored. Family work can intensify as needed.

The client is given supported access to the community through job search, volunteering or school. They will be required to document their schedule and will be working towards success in their weekly “Responsibility and Accountability group”. This group addresses work schedules and keeps the clients “plugged in” as they gain some freedom and begin to apply what they have learned in treatment to “real world” circumstances.

This is the final stage between the first portion of transitional treatment and sober living and is designed to ease the strain surrounding re-entry to the local outside community. Clients will be involved in the surrounding community, yet remain in close contact with the facility. They will continue individual and group therapy sessions with their primary care therapist. The challenges and opportunities of living a substance free lifestyle are discussed processed and planned. At A Sober Way Home, we understand the significance of and courage required to take this next step toward applying all that the individual has learned without the direct support and accountability of the therapeutic process.

The importance of a thorough Aftercare Plan is vital to ensure consistency and personal accountability moving forward from treatment. During this stage, the client is further prepared for the reality of living outside of treatment. The client is encouraged, supported, empowered and confronted when necessary. This crucial stage helps lessen the potentially disastrous gap between life in a facility and life in the outside world. It is our goal to equip our clients with the education, awareness and clarity to live productive, healthy, clean and stable lives. One Day at a Time.
