During this phase of treatment, individuals confront the complex and demanding issues that arise during the early stages of recovery.
- An integrated series of lectures and workshops dealing with addiction issues such as anger, depression, denial, grief and 12-step spirituality offers participants guidance and assistance as they search for a new way of life.
- Individual and group therapy allows participants to focus on problems that may have contributed to their present difficulties and undermined their past attempts at sobriety.
- Program enrollees are also expected to attend a prescribed number of 12-step meetings held at off-site locations. Relapse sessions are available at the hospital.
- Before patients move on to the next level of treatment, they must meet several behavioral benchmarks, and work with their primary therapist to formulate a plan for the transitional phase that follows.
To help program participants succeed family members play an integral role in the treatment program, and are deeply involved in the recovery process. Spouses, significant others and children are encouraged to attend lectures, participate in multi-family group therapy alone or with the patient, and join support groups to help them face past problems that have resulted from chemical dependency. The program also provides the opportunity to meet alone or as a family with a primary therapist. The goal is to help them prepare for the challenges they'll encounter as their loved one navigates the road to recovery.
The Intensive Phase meets 4-5 times per week for 6-8 weeks.
The transitional phase of treatment is designed to reinforce the recovery process at every turn
