Each man applying to The Last Resort is carefully assessed to ensure he will benefit from the treatment services we provide. Our free initial screening helps both the potential client and his family feel confident with their choice of needed services. It also maintains a community at The Last Resort that is committed to the recovery process.
Many men come to us suffering from a variety of co-occurring disorders, such as depression or an anxiety disorder. The psychological symptoms of the mental illness may be secondary to the chemical addiction, which means that when the addiction is properly addressed, other symptoms may improve as well. Our onsite clinicians are highly qualified to identify issues associated with addiction and treat those disorders through therapy and medication. Providing a man with the right level of care when it is needed is another strength of the new recovery model utilized at The Last Resort.
Perhaps the quality that best describes life at The Last Resort is our deep sense of community, generated from the camaraderie that develops quickly among our men. Men that enter our program are not treated as patients, but as brothers and welcome guests. Each man is responsible not only for himself, but for the wellbeing of the community as a whole.
45 – 90 Day Program
Recovery happens over time and at a pace that is different for every man. A number of well-documented studies indicate a 90 day rehabilitation program is generally the amount of time required for a man to receive maximum benefit from a treatment program. However, while most of our men do complete their program in 45 – 90 days, others find extending their residential stay by a few weeks or months offers even more benefits. The majority of our men also move into transitional living or sober houses after treatment to ease their transition back into their daily lives.
At The Last Resort, we believe a man should receive an individualized treatment plan. No two men learn in the same way, so we avoid the “cookie cutter” approach to addiction treatment. Instead, we offer thorough assessments prior to entry in our program that allow us to create the appropriate treatment plan for each individual. We also provide ongoing evaluations to identify developmental issues that could hinder his treatment process.
Because one size does not fit all in addiction treatment, we offer a variety of treatment modalities to meet men where they are at. Some of these modalities include:
- Motivational Interviewing
- Recovery Yoga and Meditation
- Active Recovery Wellness Programming
- Equine Therapy
- Mindfulness-Based Coping Strategies
- Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy
- Relapse Protection Plan Development and Implementation
- Psychiatric Evaluation and Medication Management When Appropriate
- 12 Step Facilitation
Years of chemical abuse take a serious toll on the body. At The Last Resort, we believe proper nutrition counseling can play a key role in aiding a man’s recovery from addiction. Through carefully planned, nutritious menus, we help men appreciate the hidden role nutrition can play in controlling their mood swings and aiding them in the recovery process.
