Treatment Plan Overview
The 4 week Intervention phase is the necessary starting point to recovery from addictions and can mark the start of a process that leads many people to enjoy fulfilled lives free from active addiction. This phase will intervene in the life of the addicted person and create a space where they can start to understand and face the reality of their addiction. Residents will on admission, undergo a thorough admission and orientation process. This process is an important part of the treatment regime and will establish a solid foundation for the therapeutic process of treatment.
Residents that opt for the 4 week inpatient program will be taken through a brief overview of introspection and group therapy that includes an intense analysis of the physical effects of drugs and alcohol and the accompanying mental obsession that precedes using drugs or alcohol. The admission and acceptance of the disease of addiction/alcoholism, the instilling of hope for overcoming addiction and the admission that help is required to do so, is the primary outcome to achieved.
While the Intervention phase will offer some respite and support to family members. At ARC it is important that family members are involved in the treatment process where their input during the Intervention phase can be particularly beneficial. Thus, significant others and in particular family members, are encouraged to take an interest and play a part in the treatment process.
Family members often find this proves to be most valuable. This involvement may include attending a family conference, educational lectures and workshops, attending a support group or simply filling in a questionnaire to outline how addiction has affected their lives.
