Extended Care Treatment
Considerable research has demonstrated that periods of extended drug and alcohol rehab enhance the prospect for lasting recovery. When a client transitions from Residential Treatment or Day Treatment into Intensive Outpatient concurrent with sober living, he is extending his care. Extended Care Treatment is something many clients choose once they have completed 30 days in Primary with us or in other residential treatment facilities. Extended Care is less intensive than Primary, and over a few weeks time, one can return to work or school while remaining at that level of care. When recovering from addiction, men often stay at a men's sober living home for some period of time. Clients most appropriate for Extended Care include:
- Those who have completed primary or in-patient treatment program at another facility and would benefit from extended care treatment.
- Those who have completed 30 days in our Primary Treatment program who can benefit from additional chemical dependency treatment.
Extended Care Phase I
Phase I clients participate in the Day Treatment program at the Gooden Residential Drug Treatment Center and reside at Holliston Court. This includes 6 hours of counseling, addiction education, process groups and activities during the daytime Monday through Friday. As the client progresses in his recovery, the days of treatment can be reduced. This is often helpful for those who wish to return to work or school on a limited basis.
Extended Care Phase II
Phase II clients take advantage of 3-hour Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Treatment sessions in the evenings or on Saturday. Clients typically reside at Holliston Court, where the IOP sessions take place adjacent to the residences. It is very convenient for clients to work or attend school during the day and return for dinner and an evening treatment session.
