Individual counseling may be intensive or brief and problem-specific, depending on the needs of the client.
Staff members will work with the client and his/her significant other to begin to repair difficulties that have arisen in the relationship due to the client’s addiction. Couples’ counseling is recommended by the treatment team based upon the client’s needs.
Family education and Family therapy are essential components of the client’s program of recovery. Prospective clients and their families are informed of the expectations of family participation prior to admission to the program. The family component may involve individual family therapy, group family therapy, group family education, and an introduction to the 12 Step based family support. In the event that the family is unable to travel to the Extended Care Unit for the family component, recommendations will be made for the family to access support services, counseling, and education within their home community. Telephone family therapy sessions are encouraged.
While in treatment, clients attend 12 Step meetings of the various fellowships each night of the week. Clients are encouraged to obtain a sponsor soon after discharge.
A central component of the extended treatment of sexual compulsivity is the assignment of reading materials and written assignments as appropriate to the needs of the client. These assignments are reviewed with the clinical staff members individually and within group settings as deemed appropriate for the enhancement of group members.
