Providing an opportunity to solidify their recovery foundation laid during their stay in Residential Treatment. Recovery is a process not an event, and more often than not the behaviors of drinking and using are just the tips of the iceberg. Below the behavioral surface is a hardened psychological system of negative beliefs, emotional instability and unresolved issues. In Continuing Care with ARC, the ample time of treatment provides the opportunity to work on these issues. The ARC clinical team’s treatment philosophy focuses on creating personalized clinical approaches to work within the specific circumstances of each client’s individual belief systems and historical experiences.
ARC meets clients where they are currently at versus having clients attempt to fit themselves within a treatment curriculum that doesn’t meet their individual needs. During Continuing Care, food and transportation are still provided by ARC but little by little personal responsibility is taught and practiced by our clientele.
Continuing Care – The Second Level of Treatment
The primary treatment objectives during Continuing Care are aimed at addressing the continuing individual clinical needs of clients suffering from alcoholism, drug addiction or substance abuse. The treatment curriculum during longer term treatment stays is specialized to provide a safe place for clients to work on identified co-occurring conditions or underlying issues diagnosed during primary care. Wherever possible, treatment is coordinated in clinical continuity with referring professionals.
Phase 2 treatment includes:
- Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS) detoxification
- Medication Management
- Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment
- Individual and Group Therapy
- Somatic Therapy
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
- Grief and Loss Therapy
- Anxiety Therapy
- Trauma Therapy
- Depression Therapy
- Eating Disorder Therapy
- Drug and Alcohol Counseling
- Anger and Stress Management
- Relationship Counseling
- Family Program
- Aftercare Planning
Continuing Care is designed as an intensive residential long term treatment program. Even when residential treatment has been completed and recovery from alcohol and drug abuse issues has been initially established, untreated underlying factors that have contributed to the addictive process often lead clients towards relapse. The purpose of Continuing Care is to provide a safe place for these deeper issues to be processed.
Continuing Care is About the Individual
The ARC treatment philosophy is that these core issues can only effectively be treated once a period of abstinence has provided a platform from which new perspectives and outlooks on life can be obtained. From this “higher ground” clinical support begins to assist clients in seeking resolution for these unresolved issues. The individualized approach during Residential Treatment creates personalized treatment planning that affords each client the opportunity to address the specific circumstances and historical experiences that have led to drug addiction and substance abuse issues. Continuing Care is primarily a clinical continuance of these identified issues so that clients can face reintegration into daily living without surprises.
Transitioning Out of Continuing Care
During Continuing Care the clinical team creates contingency plans for all the foreseen challenges on the road to recovery. In addition, strong after care planning offers placement for each client within a network of supportive clinical services for any unforeseen challenges on their ongoing journey into long-lasting recovery.
If clients choose they may participate in our Intensive Outpatient or Aftercare Program where each individual receives transitional support that furthers the likelihood of their sustained success. In this level of care the focus is on safe social reintegration, vocational training, educational pursuits and life skills training.
