Clinical Services

Programs

The team at Real Recovery believes that forming an authentic connection with every client is the foundation of successful treatment. This begins during a comprehensive assessment, where we get to know you and determine the treatment path that optimizes your chances of long-term recovery.

We offer three unique levels of care to meet each individual’s needs:


Real Recovery Mission

 

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Our PHP is right for individuals who have misused substances or been in active addiction recently, and a fun, structured five-day-a-week program is sufficient to allow them to stop a bad situation from becoming worse. This program gives 30 Hours a week of direct contact. Each client will be given the Real Recovery Skills Handbook, which will help both staff and clients track milestones and topics while in clinical services.

Stability and coping with day-to-day challenges are key achievements at the PHP level. Instead of attending work or school, clients will focus on treatment goals such as collecting sober/clean days, expanding their recovery support network and learning recovery and mental health skills.

PHP includes:

  • Daily meditation
  • Process group therapy
  • Supervised personal reflection time
  • Weekly spirituality group
  • Weekly CBT class
  • Expressive art therapy
  • Yoga
  • Communicable disease education
  • Nutrition education
  • Education rotation:
    • Meditation Monday
    • Choose Hope Tuesday (trauma)
    • Life Skills Wednesday (solution focused, behavioral health)
    • Rethinking Thursday (desire-forward approach)
    • Connection Friday (emphasizing community, attachment, relationships including family)

According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine: PHP is suitable for individuals who present with:

  • Moderate risk for withdrawal symptoms
  • Mild to moderate severity in mental health and are not actively suicidal self-harming, danger to others, or psychotic
  • Recent poor treatment engagement and near-daily structured program needed
  • High likelihood of relapse without near-daily monitoring and support
  • Recently unsupportive environment, but will demonstrate improvement/engagement with added professional structure and support

 

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Real Recovery Clinical Services offer two gender separate, specific tracks of Intensive Outpatient Programming. IOP is minimum of 10 hours per week direct care. This includes 9 hours of group with 1 hour of individual work. IOP is right for individuals who are:

  • Striving to establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle
  • Genuinely desire freedom from substance misuse while adjusting to a way of life with accomplishments
  • Learning and practice coping skills and prosocial skills to cope with mental health, and triggers for substance use desire

Our IOP focuses on experiential activities, which offer a hands-on, active and fun approach to teaching therapeutic concepts. Clients are able to gain an understanding of each topic in a more “real” way (physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually). Each client is given a Real Journal that helps both staff and clients track milestones for the client while at this level of care. We also stress the importance of congruence in several key to find useful awareness and insight about recovery:

  • Intimacy (attachment, relationships, romance, community, family)
  • Cognitive (thinking errors, psychological flexibility, acceptance and insight work)
  • Letting go (trauma, adjustment, and other easy-to-avoid underlying concerns)
  • Life skills (pro-social skills practice, goal setting, concrete and pragmatic)
  • Mindfulness (mindfulness meditation, grounding, flow state, self-acceptance)
  • True self (self-discovery, self-acceptance, self-esteem, conscience)

IOP meets three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for three hours. Each day includes:

  • Feelings check
  • Triggers and close calls
  • Coping skills practice (including meditation, trauma and stress response, cravings, etc.)
  • Achievement (goal setting) update
  • Community expansion update

Process

Real Recovery believes in Experiential Therapy and has created a theme rotation for clients. Each group will include one of the following topics imbedded into one of our activities:

Check Out

  • Take – Away from group
  • Goal Setting – What will I accomplish today and what will I accomplish in the next 7 days
  • Needs – Does the client need anything from the group or staff

According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, IOP is appropriate for individuals with a

  • High likelihood of relapse without close monitoring and support
  • Equivocal treatment engagement
  • Recently unsupportive environment but possesses coping skills to manage within an outpatient setting
  • Stepping down from a higher level of care

 

Outpatient Program (OP)

Outpatient groups are recommended for men and women who demonstrate a lessening need for intensive therapeutic support as they transition from treatment to life commitments, such as work or school.

OP treatment groups are twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 1.5 hours.


Psychiatry is provided on site to manage any mental health needs, and general practitioner checkups are available to each client weekly. Medication management sessions with our doctors are available at all levels of care.

Clients document their recovery in writing throughout their process from PHP to IOP to outpatient to discharge to supportive community. Real Recovery utilizes proprietary workbooks based on best current clinical practices.

Clinical services and sober living housing are very closely collaborative.
