Women tend to hide their alcohol and drug abuse and suffer more shame for it. At Residence XII we have designed our programs around the special needs of women in treatment and recovery.
Residence XII offers a selection of Outpatient programs which are designed as either a step-down from an Inpatient program providing additional support or as an entry program into our Intensive Outpatient program. Treatment plans are developed to support each woman.
The Continuing Care and Extended Care programs offer a deeper understanding of how addiction has affected the woman. Once in recovery, patients have found that further exploration of the connection between substance abuse and trauma, or a focused look at relationships, strengthens their ongoing recovery efforts.
The Intensive Outpatient program is the first stage of treatment for women who did not participate in the Inpatient program. For patients who participate in the Inpatient program, this is the next step in their journey to recovery.
This program varies in length depending on the treatment plan designed for each patient. The average program length 24 sessions over 8 weeks. There are morning and evening groups. Group sessions are approximately three hours long and each woman participates in one individual counseling session every second week.
The groups are purposefully kept small to create a safe environment for sharing and healing. The counseling sessions address biological, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of the disease and recovery.
Counseling modalities include cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy, and trauma informed care, with a 12-step foundation.
We also utilize the evidence-based practice of Seeking Safety, which is available for women to address addiction and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The program includes Family Group twice a month for family, friends, and other support people to participate with their loved one to learn more about addiction, relapse prevention, family systems and communication skill building. Family and friends are encouraged to participate in the Family Program. Click to learn more about our Family Program.
Recovery is a journey, so once Inpatient and Outpatient programs are completed, we recommend the transition to our Continuing Care Outpatient Program. We also offer an Extended Care program. This program offers more in-depth personal discovery to aid in recovery and continues the journey of joyful sobriety.
After IOP completion it is recommended that women step down to Continuing Care. Residence XII also offers Continuing Care to further individualize women’s treatment needs.
