For many women, entering into an inpatient program is extremely difficult, if not impossible. Making that type of time commitment can be quite a challenge, and it often prevents them from seeking help. Our intensive outpatient program gives them the opportunity to get the treatment they need without the large time commitment.
During IOP, our clients attend treatment on a schedule that they choose; either morning or evening. They receive group therapy, individual therapy, and participate in other therapeutic activities.
We also work with women who have completed an inpatient stay, but who need follow-up care. Our IOP offers them the type of support they need because it is a step-down approach.
12-Step programs like AA and NA have been around for several decades, and this is primarily because they are so effective. By working through the 12 steps, women gain new insight into their own addictive behaviors. They can also move forward in recovery in healthy ways to rebuild their lives and lost relationships with people they love.
Group therapy has been shown to be extremely important during addiction recovery. At Summit Women’s Recovery, we provide group psychotherapy sessions with multiple goals in mind. We want our clients to:
- Share their experiences with professionals as well as with a group of their peers.
- Be able to receive support and feedback from various perspectives.
- Learn more about themselves and their behavior patterns.
- Receive education about their mental health and addictions.
- Learn new coping skills that will help them avoid relapsing.
Group therapy can be a wonderful experience, and our clients learn so much from working together. This is such a vital part of the recovery journey.
We want to make sure we include family members as we concentrate on our clients’ recoveries as well. This is why family therapy is so critical. Our clients often participate in these sessions with family members they deem as important to their overall treatment process. These individuals can be children, spouses, siblings or parents.
During family therapy, we focus on finding solutions to any of the issues the family may be struggling with. For example, we work on building better communication skills, solving conflicts and providing quality education about addiction.
Individual therapy is another important aspect of addiction recovery because it allows the client to work with a therapist one-on-one. We have several therapists at Summit Women’s Recovery, and our clients are paired with them based on their needs and the therapists’ specialties.
One of the goals during therapy is to determine if a client is suffering from co-occurring disorders or mental health conditions. These may or may not have previously been treated. Once we know, we can recommend the right type of treatment to help with those specific symptoms. This removes the need to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol.
Our therapists are trained in many different areas, and they can provide various types of therapy, such as:
- Somatic Experiencing
- Internal Family Systems Therapy
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
- Relationship Therapy
Our case management services place a strong focus on our clients’ psychosocial health and functioning levels. We can provide support to help improve their living skills and everyday functioning in society. This might include helping women with time management, social development and much more.
For clients receiving case management services, they see an addiction psychiatrist regularly for medication management services. This close contact with our clients helps us to better understand their needs and allows us to help them maintain their sobriety.
Vivitrol is a drug and alcohol detox medication that is administered via injection once per month. It specifically targets opioid and alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Clients who access these services are entered into a regular counseling program to help them abstain from using and work on recovering.
At Summit Women’s Recovery, Neurofeedback is an optional service that many women find helpful when recovering from addictions. It is completely pain-free, and it has been shown to be helpful in modifying destructive thought patterns.
The client’s brainwaves are studied and then trained in numerous Neurofeedback sessions. Women have experienced a number of benefits, such as:
- Experiencing stress relief.
- Improving their social relationships.
- Lessening symptoms of anxiety.
- Higher self-esteem levels.
- Improved moods.
At Summit Women’s Recovery, we believe that nutrition is extremely important for overall health. Many women do not get the necessary vitamins and minerals in their diets each day. This can lead to serious health issues, including mental health problems.
We include the most recent nutrition-based healing information to a complementary eating plan for our clients. Not only do they feel better because of the other treatments we offer, but they sleep better, have more energy and have better moods due to improved eating.
We have worked with many women who needed to get away from home for a period of time to recover from their addictions. Our sober living services allow us to provide housing for these women so they can safely get the treatment they need.
During their stay, our clients are required to attend treatment sessions and participate in the healing process. For many women, this option gives them the space and time they need to focus on themselves as they recover.
