Structure

The majority of our clients begin in full-time day treatment and live in our sober living residences. There is a shared staff between our residences and our treatment clinic to maximize efficacy, communication, integration and community. We also understand that client’s come to us under different circumstances. Community clients do not live in our sober living residences, but participate in all aspects of our program and community, including lunch, outside meetings and community events.

Extended Care Phase System

There are four phases of extended care treatment, as well as a continuing care program, at Recover Integrity.  Each phase has rules and guidelines, but also tasks, that clients actively participate in from one phase to the next. These phases are intended to support clients’ in a healthy transition as they progress in their recovery.  At Recover Integrity we believe that recovery is a developmental phenomenon, and that each phase of treatment should have the necessary structure to promote the clients’ process of engagement, growth and change. The process of coming to trust oneself again is vital to building a strong foundation in recovery. Healthy boundaries and predictable rules are a fundamental container for the change that occurs in the healing process. Our phase system is one of the elements that allow clients to progress in their own growth, at a safe pace. We recognize that each person is unique; our rules and structure are guidelines we use based on experience, but the goal of our structure is guided by the commitment to support the clients in achieving their own personal and professional goals, and we are flexible when necessary when this benefits the client and the community.

Too often we hear in recovery phrases like “dumb it down” or “just take contrary action”.  And, although this folk wisdom has merit and value it can sometimes be discouraging and feel belittling.  At Recover Integrity we recognize that rules are tools to benefit the recovery process and are not intended to cause distress, they’re primary purpose is to provide a safe framework to heal and grow. The clinical team and staff discuss the structure of each client’s treatment plan and are committed to being thoughtful one client at a time.

Phase One

approximately 0-30 days

This Phase of care is focused on safety and acclamation, developing a healthy routine and bonding with community.

Clients come to treatment in a state of dis-regulation and internal conflict. The primary purpose of the first phase of treatment is to begin to feel safe and stable and to acclimate to a new environment, new people, and sobriety itself.  The structure of treatment in the first phase reflects this new reality.  The primary recovery task in this first phase of treatment is achieving a sense of safety.  Our rules and restrictions provide a safe framework to heal and grow.

Clients at this phase have acclimated to treatment and the community and are beginning to engage in the deeper work of recovery.  Often there is a feeling of plateau, which is a sign to move deeper into the work, not taper down.

Phase Three

approximately 60-90 days

 

Managing transition, good communication, solid program and healthy connections are the focus for Phase 3.

 

Clients at this phase are senior members of community, being of service and an example to the newer community members.  They have a sponsor, are well into their step-work and have formed a bond with the community and staff.  The focus is on implementing re-integration into life outside of treatment.  For some people this is bringing recovery into an established life-system, for others it is beginning to establish a healthy life-system.  At this phase, clients are still engaged part time in treatment services but are looking for, or beginning to, work and pursue larger life goals.  Treatment days begin to taper to accommodate other life obligations: family, work, education, and other pursuits.

Phase 4 clients have transitioned from treatment into full time life activity work/school/family/social.  Clients have created a recovery support network, have a sponsor, are deep in their step-work, and being of service in the sober living house and Recover Integrity treatment program.  Clients at this stage have freedom with accountability and have created a plan to move out to a lower level of care.  Clients have arranged for continued therapy after treatment and are attending aftercare.  Clients will have access to Recover Integrity’s treatment during the day, however it is not mandatory.

Continuing Care

All research shows that the greatest prognosticator of positive outcomes is length of treatment. Continuing Care at Recover Integrity is designed to be the continued bridge of clinical services, and community as client’s transition from treatment or sober living. We know that clients that continue to engage with community, therapy, and support while working towards vocational and educational goals have the highest degree of success. Continuing care services include

 

  • Weekly individual therapy
  • Weekly psychotherapeutic process group
  • Individual Case Management (guidance towards educational and vocational goals)
  • Weekly monitoring of urinalysis

 

Our continuing care program ensures that you won’t be leaving treatment without adequate support, the fundamental part of continuing care is that you will continue to work with the clinical team that you had while in treatment. Our hope is that continuing in care with the same clinicians that have become intimately familiar with you, will provide you the continuing guidance and safety of not returning to old patterns or behaviors

Monitoring

Post treatment monitoring is a very important part of a client’s relapse prevention plan.  Utilizing testing resources in the form of soberlink breathalizer and/or  urine/blood/hair testing,  provides detailed information about a client’s commitment to complete abstinence from all mind-altering substances. Results of the test(s) are provided to the client and a pre-selected resource (parent, employer, family member) to ensure that recovery is a number one priority.
