Transitional Recovery

Multi-Phasal Transitional Recovery

 

At Midwest Recovery Centers our belief is the extended care treatment model provides a safe transformative client centered and cost effective recovery process from alcohol and drug use. We have seen that substance dependence and its co –occurring disorders can become progressive and even fatal. We believe that gender specific residences for men and women are the most effective environments in which to create a therapeutic environment for our clients to gain support. We are guided by our dedication, integrity, and the belief that the disease of addiction is a treatable disease and the persons suffering from it can recover and find a new way of life.

Our program is broken into 2 phases. All phases of treatment are monitored by the clinical staff are subject to adjustment depending on each individual’s treatment needs. Clients are expected to engage in their treatment and personal 12-step recovery process at all phases of treatment.


Phase I

Admission through approximately the first 90 days of a client stay. All clients have a 2-week blackout period where phone contact is limited only during face-to-face contact with the client’s primary therapist. After 2 weeks this blackout period is lifted if client is in compliance with treatment standards. Communication with all parties is monitored throughout treatment and is reviewed by the clinical team. Clients will receive a weekly allowance from their personal spending account. All shopping is staff supervised during Phase I.

  1. Admission process / patient orientation / blackout
  2. 1 hour of individual therapy, or more as needed, per week
  3. 25 hours of group therapy weekly
  4. An initial History and Physical from our medical director in the first 7 days, as well as wellness visits each month, or as needed, utilizing western and naturopathic medicine.
