african american man receives individualized treatment planAddiction is a complex disease. Every man entering The Last Resort Recovery center is coming in with a unique set of experiences, issues, and views. The therapeutic intervention that helps one man to break free and thrive could be counterproductive to another. At The Last Resort we understand this. That’s why we create an individualized treatment plan to meet the specific needs of each man in treatment.

Upon admission to The Last Resort, all men spend the first part of their treatment in the “Bridge Program.” This is a setting on campus that allows for closer medical supervision and monitoring of detox symptoms. Additionally, these clients see a clinical psychologist, and receive specialized programming. They receive both clinical and 12 step programming, but also eat meals and spend recreation periods with men who have been at TLR for longer periods. New clients spend about 5-7 days in the Bridge program depending on the severity of their detox symptoms. During this time, he will gradually transition into regular programming with the rest of the community.

Why the Bridge Program?

The purpose of this transitory period is to give men the space they need to adapt to the treatment environment and stabilize physically prior to fully engaging the responsibilities and expectations of the recovery community. At TLR, we believe that the body needs to begin its process of healing before any real spiritual and recovery work can take place. Since community remains an equally essential component of our treatment philosophy, this time is also an opportunity for our newer members to meet men who have been in the program longer and who become valuable mentors and sources of support.

Other Key Components of an Individualized Treatment Plan

Through our individualized treatment plan and thorough assessments, our clinicians are able to anticipate each client’s particular needs and then inform every level of staff regarding this. That means that everyone that interacts with clients is on the same page and has a shared understanding of the best approach for that client. Furthermore, by having a high staff to client ratio there is always an opportunity for additional one on one time. Another key component in our treatment is the camaraderie experienced in small communities. Small groups of men supported by a close-knit and readily available staff have worked miracles in the lives of our clients. It’s a part of our unique treatment model that sets us apart from larger, more impersonal programs, and we’re committed to keeping it intact.

What Can You Expect from Your Treatment Plan?

While it’s true that each individualized treatment plan is different, there are a few basics that you can expect. First, you’ll participate in both individual and group therapy sessions. The main difference is what type of therapy you’ll be doing. Some people benefit more from cognitive behavioral therapy, while others do well with a blend of a few different therapies. Your personal therapist will get to know you and decide what will work best for you.

In group therapy, you’ll be able to have discussions with other people who have been in similar situations to yours. You’ll see that you aren’t alone in your addiction and get ideas for preventing relapse when you leave treatment. Most people find that they build lifelong support systems in the group therapy setting. In addition, you’ll follow a rehab schedule that includes a fitness program, equine therapy, and a mens work program. Together with evidence based therapy, these programs will form your treatment plan.
