Addiction Recovery Center

Finding a reputable addiction recovery center for a loved one struggling with sobriety can be difficult. Not all addiction recovery programs are created equal and it’s important that you find one that fits your unique needs. In this article, we are going to offer a few tips for finding the right addiction recovery center.

Check Their Reputation

In this day and age, it’s never been easier to do your due diligence and check out the reputation of a business. Start by doing a quick Google search for the recovery center. Check out their website and various online profiles. Do they have testimonials from previous patients? Do they have any reviews on their Google listings? This is a great place to start and get a good feel for a center before making a decision.

Check Their Services

Different addiction recovery centers offer different services. It’s important to make sure your recovery center offers the specific services you need. Are you looking for in-patient or out-patient treatment? Make sure you double check that the center offers exactly what you need.

Check Their Experience

It’s also important to go with a recovery center that has a good amount of experience. A recovery center that has a lot of experience will also have many great industry connections that can be beneficial when dealing with addiction recovery.

5 Tips For Preparing For Addiction Counseling

Addiction Counseling

If you’ve never gone through addiction counseling before, you may be a little intimidated by the process. That’s perfectly normal, but we don’t want you to be intimidated or nervous about the session. Counseling can provide a number of different benefits, but in order to get the most out of your first session and any additional sessions, you want to make sure you’re prepared for what’s ahead. Below, we share some tips for preparing for your first session so you can get the most out of it.

Learn About Your Counselor

In order to be comfortable opening up and getting the most out of your session, you have to feel a connection to your counselor. One way to start making that connection is by reading up on your counselor. We have staff bios for every one of our counselors, so once you’ve been matched, learn about the counselor you’ll meet at your session.

Adjust Your Mindset

The people who get the most out of their counseling session are the ones who are willing to put in the effort on their end. You don’t need to have blind faith in the process, but at least try to come into your first meeting with an open mind and a positive attitude.

Take Ownership

Take ownership for your role in the situation, and don’t be afraid to share your feelings. If you hold back or are unwilling to revisit your ownership in the situation, you’re going to struggle to make progress. We’re not here to place blame, but at the same time, self-reflection is a key point in the counseling process.

Follow Up

Finally, as much as we’d love it if we could make a big breakthrough with only one session, odds are you’re going to want follow up sessions to really understand and take control of your feelings. Regular attendance and working on the goals your counselor sets are very important to making continued progress through therapy. If you skip sessions or don’t follow through on your end, you’re not going to get the most out of your visits.

Case Management & Clinical Intervention Explained

Clinical Intervention

If you or a loved one is struggling with substance abuse or addiction, there are many treatment options at your disposal. In this article, we are going to explain how case management and clinical intervention work and why they’re beneficial for individuals struggling with addiction.

Case Management

Case management begins with a general phone assessment of the client and family. This assessment includes client’s demographics, history of substance abuse, prior treatment(s), mental health diagnosis, and family dynamics.

Communication with family, client and treatment providers remains consistent before, during and after treatment. Case Management provides accountability to continue on the recovery journey for the client and each family member during the transition out of treatment. Accountability in recovery entails meeting attendance, drug and/or alcohol monitoring, coaching, therapy and implementing the treatment plan provided by the facility. Clarity individualizes this to fit each client and family's needs. For the family, this includes learning appropriate boundaries and coaching throughout the treatment process. We provide referrals to family members, as needed.

Individual Recommendations for Family Members:

  • Getting involved in their own recovery

  • Individual, Family and/or Couples Therapy

  • Treatment or workshops for codependency, trauma history, attachment issues and unresolved family conflict.

Individual Recommendations for Clients:

  • Primary Treatment Placement

  • Aftercare Treatment Placement

  • Coaching, Mentoring and Monitoring

Our staff have vetted treatment and aftercare providers throughout the country. With over thirty years of experience we find the appropriate recommendation for your family member based on individual needs, finances and diagnosis.

Clinical Intervention

So, what is clinical intervention? It involves the following services:

  • Intervention Consult with Clinician

  • Treatment Placement

  • Pre-intervention Meeting

  • Intervention Meeting

  • Transportation to Treatment Provider

  • Case Management with interventionist

Our interventionists, clinicians and case managers have over thirty years combined experience helping families recover. Each one of us is engaged in our own personal recovery from substance use, codependency and family of origin issues. We have experience professionally and personally.
