Residential Treatment – Extended Care
Residential treatment extended care starts on day 31 and goes through day 90. This period is very important for a client in early recovery. This is when they prove they can use the tools they learned in primary care. They show they can be accountable, take direction and work a program of recovery.
The client has complete the first 30 days of residential treatment. They have attended daily groups and 12-step meetings. They have gotten a sponsor and started working the 12 steps. They are armed with facts about the disease of alcoholism and addiction and what to do about it. They have completed a relapse prevention plan and identified triggers and developed coping skills.
The client has shown they are now ready to move on to the next phase of residential treatment, extended care.
Residential Treatment & Job Search
The secondary focus of this phase of residential treatment behind continuing to work a 12 step program is finding employment. This prepares the client to be self-supporting once they have finished their 90 days in residential treatment.
Clients will go on job search 5 days each week where they will begin to look for a “get well” job. A get well job is a job where the client will be able to work during the day and still attend meetings in the evening. The get well job allows the client to continue to put the recovery first.
First time job searchers will go out with senior residents of their house who can show them around and help them navigate the local area. Bus fare is provided on a daily basis for an all-day bus pass. Client’s are encouraged to find jobs on direct bus routes from the house in which they live so that getting to and from work does not become an issue after accepting a job.
We have placed sober women and men in jobs for 17 years. Doing so has created connections in our local community. Many businesses who have positions open will contact us before advertising for new employees. They trust us from previous experience to provide dependable employees.
Family Visits and Passes While in Residential Treatment
Upon reaching day 31 clients are allowed to visit with family starting on Sunday afternoons after the weekly family support group. The first visit* will be on site and limited to 2 hours so that staff is there to support the family if the visit does not go as planned.
After the first week the client will be allowed to go on passes of site with the family. Pass length is progressive starting at 3 hours and then 6 hours and so on.
From day 60 forward clients will be able to take overnight passes. These overnight passes must be approved by staff and can only occur every other weekend. Overnight passes can occur on Friday and Saturday nights.
*For families traveling significant distances extended visits may be approved by our clinical staffing team. All requests must be made at least 2 weeks in advance. Residential Treatment requirements must come first and the visit must be scheduled around them.BACK
