What can I expect from the Treatment Programs at Palm Partners?
If you have never been to a drug rehab before you probably have no idea what to expect. You might be anxious or scared because you desperately want to beat your addiction but don’t know how or whether rehab is really going to work. A lot of the times we get our ideas about treatment programs from what we see on T.V. and in the movies. These are not accurate descriptions of what a treatment program really is. The treatment programs at Palm Partners include Inpatient Treatment, Intensive Outpatient Treatment, and Outpatient Treatment.
What to expect from Treatment Programs at Palm Partners – Inpatient Treatment Program
After a client completes Detox it is recommended that they go through an inpatient treatment program. The inpatient treatment program at Palm Partners can last from 30-90 days. Inpatient treatment is great for individuals who are more relapse prone than others. Inpatient treatment has a high level of care and involves many different types of care, classes, activities and develop of like skills through:
- Residential Living
- Individual Therapy
- Group Therapy
- Family Therapy
- Relapse Prevention
- Recovery Networking
- Tai Chi
- Chiropractic Services
- Healthy Lifestyles Program
- Dual Diagnosis
- Trauma Resolution Program
Our inpatient program is crucial to helping our clients learn about addiction, their specific addiction (and it’s causes), life skills, effective communication, copy skills and other recovery tools. Inpatient treatment includes traditional therapy in groups and in one on one settings. Inpatient treatment also includes hypnotherapy to help deal with any trauma, yoga, exercise, nutritional counseling, massage, relapse prevention and 12 step meetings. With inpatient treatment at Palm Partners the clients stay in a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment while they are not in groups throughout the day. During the day on Monday-Fridays clients are in multiple groups throughout the day including group therapy, individual therapy, the science of addiction and recovery, and other activities. Groups are intense and participation is required.
Inpatient treatment is a lot like being in college where you live in a “dorm” and go to “school” during the day; where the dorms are our residential buildings and school is our treatment facility. Our clients like to refer to going to inpatient treatment everyday as “going to school” and in a way they’re right. They’re here to learn about their addiction, develop life skills, coping skills, and create a recovery plan for success once they leave.
What to expect from Treatment Programs at Palm Partners – Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Usually those clients who are a part of the IOP treatment program come from the intensive inpatient and transition into this part of the treatment program. This means that they successfully completed everything they needed to do in inpatient treatment and are now ready to begin going to work or school again. The amount of hours spent in groups is significantly decreased to half a day and the other half of the day the client spends searching for work, at work, going to school, etc. The focus becomes more on life goals, moving on with life, what the plan is if they go home, and long-term recovery. By the time a client is ready for IOP they are in a stable condition.
What to expect from Treatment Programs at Palm Partners – Outpatient Treatment Program
The outpatient treatment program at Palm Partners is very similar to the inpatient program except that it is not nearly as intense nor do the clients stay in an apartment that is a part of the treatment center. The outpatient treatment program allows clients to remain at their place of employment and also, if they are from the area, stay in their residence while receiving drug and alcohol treatment. Outpatient treatment programs at Palm Partners are designed for the individual who is already stable and not as prone to relapsing. Outpatient treatment programs are perfect for those people whose alcohol and drug problem has not progressed to the point of requiring an intense level of care. The emphasis of groups in outpatient treatment programs is focused more on long-term recovery plans, life goals, continuing recovery and education or career based.
Regardless of what treatment program you are in, you can expect the best in the addiction treatment field. The treatment programs at Palm Partners are specifically designed to help you stay sober for the rest of your life. In fact Palm Partners offers a guarantee for those individuals who complete inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment and coaching. Either way for many people treatment is a life changing and very positive experience where they make long-lasting friendships, find themselves again, laugh a lot, and learn how to stay sober.
