During residential treatment, patients learn recovery skills, interpersonal skills and mental health management skills to manage mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, mood disorders, and others. The length of stay is determined individually by our clinical team with the patient. Residential patients attend 30 hours of programming per week. The topics covered include the biology of addiction, interpersonal skills, relapse prevention skills, communication skills, anger management, grief/loss, codependency, movement, yoga and recovery skills. The residential program is centered on evidenced-based practices, recent neuroscience discoveries and the mind-body connection. The patient will work with an individual counselor to resolve any presenting mental health issues, trauma issues and/or any adverse childhood experiences. Mental health issues, trauma, and adverse childhood experiences are risk factors that may be contributing to the addiction. In addition to clinical participation, patients will also learn about the 12-step program and attend 12-step meetings on-campus and off-campus.
During residential treatment, smoking is allowed within the designated smoking areas.
After residential treatment, it is important to participate in continuing care. Upon discharge from residential care, each patient will have an aftercare plan to include continued psychiatry, therapy and any other resources needed to continue recovery.
