Grace Recovery focuses on more than just helping clients recover. At our addiction recovery center, we want to help everyone in our care build a solid foundation for long-term recovery. For this reason, we help our clients develop skills that can support them and help them sustain a life of wellness. As such, we offer the recovery services below to help our clients meet their goals.
Life Skills Training
We provide clients with support for all aspects of their lives, including employment, time management, financial literacy, and nutrition. Not only do we provide them with tools to improve their lives, but we also teach them how to implement these tools in cognitive behavioral therapy.
Our addiction recovery center staff offers clients individual case management sessions one to two times per week. Individual case management provides resident the opportunity to learn more about recovery-related issues, identifying struggles, and embracing the 12-step philosophy. Clients are encouraged through individual sessions as well as a variety of writing assignments to identify areas of recovery that are challenging for them to grasp. We also help clients seek the support of a sponsor and others in the recovery community.
Emotional Regulation Work
During treatment, individual and group therapies focus on observing and discussing the emotions that clients feel. Clients learn healthier ways of coping with unpleasant feelings. We also practice family integration, which builds a support network and allows family members to heal as well. This work continues after treatment, as well. Our case managers recommend addiction treatment services like therapists, psychiatrists, sober living homes, and 12-step meetings to continue to improve upon emotional wellbeing.
Educational Core Groups
The core groups at our addiction recovery center provide residents with a thorough education regarding their addiction. The hour group serves as a learning platform from which residents can learn about various aspects of their disease. Common educational topics include:
- Early recovery skills
- Relapse prevention
- Co-occurring disorders
- Relationships in recovery
- Family systems
- Trigger identification
- Body chemistry
We may also cover softer topics such as healthy lifestyles, stress reduction, thought-stopping techniques, and “one-day-at-a-time” philosophy.
We design our core group schedule to deliver all relevant educational material during the course of a 30-day residential stay. Core groups or educational components take place each morning followed by a process group in the afternoon. We don’t encourage clients to process during the morning core group. Instead, we ask residents to process material from the morning and other relevant content in the afternoon process group.
Process groups are an open forum during which clients have the opportunity to process any issues and feelings relevant to recovery. While the group leader facilitates group process, client need and topic drive the content. While process is a forum where residents can discuss personal material, facilitators may also bring in a simple topic to discuss. Examples of simple topics include anger, fear, forgiveness, gratitude, and others related to recovery.
We offer clients individual therapy sessions one to two times per week. Individual therapy provides the opportunity for treatment teams to review with resident’s specific treatment goals, individual issues, and discharge plans. Individual therapy is a place where residents can explore problems pertinent to the underlying issues that contribute to their patterns of behavior.
We then encourage clients to share these deeper issues in group process as a means to gain support and feedback. For instance, in individual therapy, a client may identify a traumatic experience which exasperated his or her using and impeded recovery. Individual therapy may be a place to become aware of and desensitized to the event and group process can then offer healing and additional support.
Family education is the foundation of the program at our addiction recovery center. It covers many topics from the process of addiction to family systems theory. Upon completion of the family component of the clinical program, clients and family members will have a solid education in the addictive process, the disease concept, the brain model, emotional byproducts, codependency, and family systems.
For instance, family members will learn about symptoms of codependency including caretaking, low self-worth, obsession, and control. We provide them with an opportunity to identify their own denial, poor communication, and weak boundaries. Furthermore, we discuss how the addiction resulted in anger and lack of trust. We also invite speakers to present the most current and up-to-date material on the treatment of families.
