ARC offers a variety of evidence-based practices and services that are unique to ARC including:
Twelve Step Facilitation
Twelve Step Facilitation (TSF) is a way for those with addiction disease to strengthen their early recovery. The program is catered for the individual and based in behavioral and spiritual principles that form the core of 12-step fellowships – such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. TSF is suitable for anyone dependent on drugs or alcohol.
The Matrix Model provides a framework for engaging with those struggling with substance abuse and helping them achieve a life in recovery. Patients learn about issues critical to addiction and relapse, receive direction and support from a trained therapist and become familiar with self-help programs – all while being monitored for drug use. The program includes education for family members affected by the addiction.
The primary goal of Addiction Recovery Center’s Life Skills program is to help clients develop balanced, self-determined behaviors to meet the challenges of a life in recovery. This means accepting a life filled with conscious choices, taking into consideration one’s own needs and the needs of others, as well as potential consequences of one’s actions.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is a practical treatment that focuses on patterns of negative thinking and the beliefs that create those patterns. (NAMI)
Gender Process Groups
ARC’s Gender Process Groups create a safe environment for men and women to discuss the relationships in their lives – including their relationship with alcohol and drugs. Groups are focused on change and recovery.
Family Groups introduce clients, friends and families to other recovering individuals and their loved ones, creating an opportunity to foster important relationships, as well as exposure to other’s experiences.
Relapse prevention is designed to help clients and their loved ones identify the signs and symptoms of relapse and take steps to call out the behavior.
Co-occurring treatment services are for those suffering from co-occurring disorders – such as mental illness and substance abuse – that both need treatment for either effort to be successful. These dual-diagnosis services integrate assistance for each condition, helping people recover from both in one setting, at the same time. (NAMI)
