Our Pennsylvania Drug And Alcohol Addiction Modalities
Pennsylvania Addiction Methodology
From doing a quick google search, it can become very apparent how many treatment facilities are out there for substance abuse treatment. When in need of these services, it can be difficult to navigate and find the right treatment center for you or your loved one. There are specific programs for the young adult, business professionals, pregnant females, people in uniform, and many more. In addition to that, there are also varying types of treatment experiences including holistic, trauma-centered, psychodrama, medication-assisted treatment, and family-oriented just to name a few. There are also the different levels of care recommended for presenting symptoms that range from staying at an inpatient facility where one lives and receives treatment, to attending only a few days a week on a schedule for treatment services. All of these options and choices can make finding the right program that feels like a good “fit” difficult for a person.
Often people feel that they have to “choose” between treatment and being engaged in life. Part of the beauty of residential and inpatient treatment models is that people can step away from the world they live in and begin again in a safe environment. This change often is very helpful for clients in early treatment or those who need a chance away from their surroundings. There is also evidence to support that learning to attain and maintain recovery while in one’s community can help with sustainable recovery.
In the outpatient models of care, a client lives at home or in the surrounding community and may need to step away from their job, school, family or other loved ones to participate in treatment at a higher level of recommended care. The reasoning behind this is often to help a client have a “re-start,” with time spent focusing on themselves and their recovery as they gain the skills and tools to enter back into their communities.
At Life of Purpose, we can offer this “restart” for self-care and recovery in our outpatient model, which can be so important to early recovery. If a person meets the criteria for our ambulatory detox, we would strongly recommend this time of self-care while in treatment, which can be anywhere from 5-10 days. More intensive engagement in treatment can also be highly recommended when in our Partial Hospitalization Programming (PHP) 5 days a week. This is meant to be a temporary transition period. While in this level of care, we focus on building the skill sets, self-esteem, and relationship building skills to get you back into your community. We encourage involvement in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Smart Recovery, other support groups, and faith-based support to help create healthy foundations for further growth.
Purpose Driven Treatment
At the root of our treatment philosophy, we believe in the importance of a treatment experience that can parallel one’s responsibilities WHILE also offering the opportunity to stay connected to one’s community. We understand how important relationships to school, work, volunteer, and other community support can be, especially when it’s something a person is passionate about. We understand that humans are social creatures who need relationships, accountability, and places to belong to grow internally and externally. This Purpose-Driven Treatment approach is underlying all the work we do with our clients while they are in treatment.
At Life of Purpose, we strongly emphasize the importance of building and sustaining connections by looking at what motivates a person and helping uncover new motivations while in treatment. Our Purpose-Driven model is about exploring what tugs at someone’s heart, where they feel they belong, what sparks their joy, and gives them purpose. We find from treatment experience and models of treatment such as Motivational Interviewing, that identifying one’s motivations is key to helping clients find the motivation to stay sober. We hope to link these connections for our clients while in treatment, ignite passions, and link the necessary resources to make building one's life that much easier.
What We Offer
Throughout an individual’s stay in treatment with us, we offer a 12-week rotating curriculum focused on theoretical process topics combined with practice groups. This might look like linking psychoeducation of family systems with an activity on boundary setting, or exploring mindfulness by looking at one's time management. By enhancing skill sets, we give purpose to these clinical topics and help give people practical skills for interacting with the world.
We offer individual sessions with professional therapists who have skills in working with the addiction population. Our therapists are equipped to work as a team, collaborating with our medical and case management departments to offer you or your loved one a comprehensive experience.
We provide services from adolescent age and up. Our adolescent programming is outpatient and intensive outpatient groups for ages 14-17. We can also work with local schools and resources for assessments of teenagers, helping to identify presenting symptoms and offering preventive and early psychoeducation.
Our adulting programming is open to the general community. We collaborate with recovery housing that can be arranged upon admissions, making someone's opportunity for treatment even more accessible.
We offer a College-Track for the college or college-bound student. We also provide outpatient treatment in the larger Philadelphia area that offers addiction services to aid you in your sobriety. Our purpose-driven approach to treatment means that we provide our client the tools to succeed in maintaining long-term sobriety and are there for support along each step of the recovery process.
