Hope Haven offers a full range of residential alcohol and drug addiction treatment services, utilizing evidence-based practices, to produce positive results and help clients transition into a life of sobriety.
We follow the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) protocols for our treatment methods, provide wrap around case management, cognitive behavioral therapy, and use evidence-based practices:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Techniques are used to help individuals challenge their behavior patterns to decrease the emotional distress and self-defeating behavior that contributes to addictive behavior. Alcohol and drug abusers may exhibit behaviors that cannot be controlled through rational thought. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is "behavior focused" – undertaken for specific behaviors and "action oriented" – the therapist assists the client in selecting specific strategies to help address those behaviors.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques are used to help individuals challenge their behavior patterns and replace their "errors in thinking” with more realistic and effective thoughts. Errors in thinking include: overgeneralizing, magnifying negatives, minimizing positives and catastrophizing. The goal is to decrease the emotional distress and self-defeating behavior that contributes to addictive behavior.
This is a goal-oriented, client-centered counseling style for eliciting behavior change by helping clients envision a better future, and become increasingly motivated to achieve it.
Clients approach counseling at different levels of readiness to change their behavior. Therapists using Motivational Interviewing attempt to increase the client's awareness of the potential problems, consequences, and risks faced as a result of the behavior in question and influence clients to consider making changes.
Relapse Prevention Therapy
Relapse Prevention Therapy teaches individuals how to anticipate and cope with the temptations to relapse. It is a cornerstone of recovery and continued sobriety.
Clients learn the following relapse process and techniques of relapse prevention:
Identify and cope effectively with high-risk situations such as negative emotional states, interpersonal conflict, and social pressure.
Cope with urges and cravings.
Implement damage control procedures during a lapse to minimize negative consequences.
Stay engaged in treatment even after a relapse.
Learn how to create a more balanced lifestyle.
Stages of Change
Using Stages of Change we tailor a client's addiction treatment to match the stage they are experiencing.
The Stages of Change are defined as the following:
The Precontemplation Stage is when an individual denies or minimizes her substance abuse problems.
At some point she acknowledges that she has a problem and will consider making changes; this is the Contemplation Stage.
It may take a while or a single event that gets the individual to make a commitment to overcome their substance abuse. When this occurs they’ve moved to the Preparation Stage and treatment can begin.
During primary treatment the client is in the Action Stage. At this time she is learning and living new behaviors as her body goes through a recovery process too.
Once she’s learned the tools to recovery and sobriety, she enters the Maintenance Stage where she lives day-to-day, putting to use what she has learned.
Each client moves through the Action and Maintenance stages at their own pace and we tailor our treatment accordingly.
Many alcohol and drug addicts have histories of physical and sexual abuse and other types of trauma-inducing experiences. These experiences often lead to substance abuse and co-occurring disorders (e.g. mental health disorders – anxiety, depression) resulting in contact with the criminal justice system.
Hope Haven's trauma-informed care treatment framework addresses the consequences of trauma and facilitates healing to help our clients feel hopeful for their own recovery as well as respected, informed, and connected.
