Intensive Programs

broken heartThe Center for Healthy Change offers Intensive Treatment & Aftercare Programs.  These programs are a highly intensive programs of in-depth clinical and support services to aid individuals and families requiring a heightened level of treatment, but for whom an inpatient setting may not be desirable or possible.  Due to the fully customized and extensive in-depth nature of this program, admittance is very limited – to do this work properly, we can only serve a small number of clients at a time. To make things easier on you, participants may enter at any time throughout the year.  Participants will be engaged in services conducted by our team, and they will span the areas of specific concern that are affecting your daily life.

Program Components:

Telephone Screening A 30 minute telephone conversation explores the appropriateness, commitment, expectations and readiness for the Intensive Program. A Center For Healthy Change team member will conduct this brief interview.

Psychosocial Interview Once accepted into the program, we conduct a Psychosocial Interview to explore the clients experiences and needs. This information is critical to understanding any additional assessment needs, and for preparing for the Intensive Design Planning Session.

Assessments It is not uncommon that some additional assessment may be indicated to aid the Intensive Plan Development, and we may identify additional needs. Some examples include Post Traumatic Stress, ADHD, Sexual Addiction Inventory or other tools.

Treatment Strategies Planning Session This session is where the rubber meets the road, and we get down to YOUR specific goals and lay-out a detailed road map to get us there. A formal written plan for your participation will guide the services ahead.

Individual Psychotherapy All clients will receive weekly individual psychotherapy targeting day to day as well as long term personal development. These sessions allow for a very in-depth and personal monitoring of steps taken, skills applied and results generated by our work together. Areas of particular need or interest will also be targeted.

Group Therapy Aftercare participants find great support and warmth through sharing and learning from each other in our weekly small group format. Here, we all bounce around our experiences and develop insight that can lead us to both understanding our recovery process and to finding ways to support it.

Specialized Support Services These customized support services run across a wide range of options, and each client selects a minimum of one additional service to supplement their program. These include Mindfullness Training, Practical Life Management, Life and Career Coaching, Sober Companion Days, Women’s Practical Empowerment, Weekend Retreats.
