Hanbleceya's addiction treatment subprogram employs and integrates a multidisciplinary approach to treatment using individual, Chemical Dependency Case Managers (CDCM ) for successful and long-term application.
Each client is evaluated by the Treatment Team for substance abuse or dependency as part of our standard assessment process. If addiction treatment is indicated, the client will be placed in our addiction subprogram, a Case Manager will be assigned and a treatment structure will be implemented. An assigned Chemical Dependency Case Manager meets with the client in a weekly session and is responsible for supporting the client with developing an active and healthy recovery program. The CDCM helps promote consistency, a key ingredient of recovery, and structure compliance through progress tracking, relapse prevention, and requirement accountability. Additionally, a function of the CDCM is to maintain a harmonious relationship with the client’s 12 Step sponsor to help build and model a united support system.
In addition to weekly sessions with the CDCM, our clients attend an internal 12 Step literature study designed to translate the basic text of 12 Step into applicable and immediate tools and educate clients on the culture, traditions and history of their respective self-help group. This increases confidence and comfort when attending and joining outside groups and developing a sober support network in the 12 Step community. Our CD education group is a didactic training program that is designed to provide information on how to effectively treat the disease of addiction and provide insight and awareness to the brain’s recovery process. Clients learn to expedite the bio-psycho-social recovery process through proper nutrition and increasing L-Tyrosine intake, utilizing vitamins and supplements, exercise, stress management, effective communication skills, socializing, meditation and fun. A well balanced recovery program, strong support group and healthy lifestyle is the key to achieving long term sobriety, but with stress as the greatest enemy, not always easy to maintain.
At Hanbleceya, clients have the opportunity to practice recovery while life is in session in a safe and supported environment. They can immediately utilize their treatment tools in real world scenarios, build on their successes and regain the confidence, integrity and self-efficacy that are often stripped by the illness.
