At Seacrest Recovery Center we utilize a unique “Phase Back to Life” approach to treatment. Phase Back means that rather than offer a cookie cutter approach where every client goes through the same process from start to finish, each individual has a unique treatment plan designed for him or her.
All clients start in our Phase 1 Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) where they will attend therapy sessions 5 days a week, Monday through Friday. Alongside that they will reside in our fully staffed, well appointed homes. When they are not in the therapeutic day, clients are engaging in recovery and life skills activities such as AA/NA meetings, finding and working with a 12-Step sponsor, and preparing to find a job.
This is beneficial to the individual who is seeking real recovery from drugs and alcohol because it encourages each person to learn and engage in the recovery lifestyle, while at the same time preparing for a return to normal life.
After approximately two weeks of stabilizing in to the first Phase of our IOP program, clients gently transition in to Phase 2 IOP. During these Phase, we gradually move the client more towards real life and a little away from treatment. This is done by scaling down to three therapeutic days per week rather than 5, plus an individual counseling session. More emphasis is placed on getting a job, engaging in 12 Step Recovery, the gym, and more group activities. Curfew is extended and a little more responsibility is placed on the individual. Phase 2 generally lasts between 6 and 10 weeks, depending on the individual.
Upon successfully completing Phase 2 of our program, clients then step down in to Phase 3 Outpatient Program (OP). This is really where the rubber hits the road for most clients. They are enjoying all the freedoms of normal life including full time employment and the ability to go anywhere they want, so long as guidelines and protocols are followed. The only difference is that they are still connected to a structured recovery program and living with other like minded people. Clients will still be engaged in one OP therapy session, subject to random drug screening. All while living in the safety and security of our structured living homes.
