Aftercare Planning – Just like the rest of the addiction recovery experience, aftercare planning is unique to each individual patient and must focus on his or her personal needs and long-term treatment goals. Our case managers work to create individualized aftercare plans that will ensure sobriety long after IOP.
Guided Yoga – We have seen the benefits of a yoga practice for recovering individuals. Not only does in calm the mind, reduce impulsivity and aid self-reflection, it helps keep the body healthy and produces happiness-inducing chemicals such as dopamine and serotonin. Our yoga classes are taught by an instructor who has a clinical background and counseling license.
Life Skills Training – Addiction strips people of basic life skills. Those in the throes of addiction often neglect their financial responsibilities, personal hygiene, nutrition and basic life responsibilities. Over time bad habits become deeply engrained. Individuals just entering recovery often have to re-learn how to manage their lives. We work to reinstill basic life skills in all of our patients so they can become self-sufficient, productive members of society.
Education Assistance – In many instances, drug addiction and alcoholism occur sometime during adolescence or early adulthood. Addiction can have a detrimental impact on an individual’s school record. If a patient wants to go back to school we help them do so with our education assistance program.
Vocational Training – Addiction also interferes with career opportunities and employment. We help each and every one of our patients discover what it is they want to do, and then we actively help them achieve their personal vocational goals. We also can aid clients with career steps such as resume writing, job applications and interviews.
