Evidence-Based Treatment

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for recovery. Safe Harbor Recovery Center uses an integrated and evidence-based approach to treatment designed to address the specific needs of each individual. These approaches include but are not limited to cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, and narrative therapies.

Motivational interviewing is an important component of the treatment process to encourage change and reduce the chance of relapse. The delivery of treatment consists of individual, group, and family counseling. Guests learn about substance using behavior, denial, and the feelings that lead to unhealthy responses. They develop coping skills and life skills that they can put into practice when they make the transition back to independent living.

All guests receive a comprehensive assessment to aid in identifying strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences. The assessment aids in determining an accurate diagnosis and identifying medical and cognitive issues. The comprehensive assessment guides the resident and clinicians in developing an effective person-centered treatment plan. The treatment plan addresses medical/biological needs, mental health, nutritional guidance, spirituality, emotional health, physical exercise, life skills, and ongoing support.

Recovery Continues After Residential Treatment

An important component of any successful recovery plan is a transitional/aftercare plan that includes support systems, plans for continued recovery, and relapse prevention. The plan lists specific steps to continued recovery as well as short and long-term goals.

Safe Harbor Recovery Center uses Trac9 relapse prevention assessments to manage and plot individual recovery progress. Clients who use Trac9 benefit from a state-of-the-art program that helps them maintain sobriety like no other program can. This benefit lasts well after the residential program is completed, as anonymous post-treatment surveys are sent each month for 12 months after discharge.

During your time at Safe Harbor, you will complete Trac9 assessments each week to allow the treatment team to monitor your improvement. Your responses will be used to generate topics for therapy sessions, allowing your counselor to target your specific needs and thus proactively reduce relapse risk.

Treating Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders

In some cases, substance use begins to control symptoms of a mental health issue such as anxiety, depression, or PTSD. In such cases, treating both conditions simultaneously is essential to the foundation for lasting recovery. Safe Harbor Recovery Center staff work closely with guests who have a co-occurring diagnosis to develop a plan for overall wellness.

Family Programs

Drug or alcohol addiction does not just affect the individual using substances. It affects the entire family. Due to addictive behaviors that may create mistrust, disappointment, anger, and resentment; family members benefit from a safe environment where they can express themselves and explore issues related to the impact of the guest’s substance use while learning how to support their loved one. Family education includes learning how to rebuild trust, promote healthy communication, stop codependency, avoid enabling, and manage stress.

Developing a Continuing Care Plan

Following residential treatment, guests receive continuing care plans that outline the next steps on their recovery journey. Continuing care is personalized to fit the unique needs of each individual, considering factors like the availability of a strong family support system, overall physical health, and the presence of a co-occurring mental health disorder such as anxiety or depression. Some of the options that may be explored include but are not limited to partial hospitalization programs, sober living homes that provide housing with other individuals in recovery, 12-Step recovery groups in the community, and access to Safe Harbor Recovery Center’s alumni groups and events.
