Harbor of Grace Enhanced Recovery Center is a comprehensive continuum of care destination for individuals suffering from alcoholism and other chemical dependency addictions. Harbor of Grace Enhanced Recovery Center delivers a holistic approach to substance abuse treatment, addressing the needs of the patient’s mind, body and spirit.

Harbor of Grace Enhanced Recovery Center Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

What does Harbor of Grace Enhanced Recovery Center offer?

24 Hour Clinical Care

At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient (IOP) treatment programs for up to 12 months following inpatient treatment dramatically increase rates of success in maintaining sobriety and long-term recovery. IOP provides continuity of care through various phases of the addiction recovery process. It allows participants to conduct their lives while benefitting from a structured and supportive level of care that meets 3 times per week for 2 ½ to 3 hours per session. The small group of patients and their dedicated counselor will meet either during the day or in the early evenings to accommodate other work and family obligations.

Outpatient (OP)

Often the next appropriate level of care following IOP, the same Harbor of Grace counselors can continue to meet with their patients on an outpatient, one-to-one basis as needed. Patients and their therapist typically meet once per week to discuss and explore issues of early recovery. Themes that may emerge are relationships, stress, anxiety, depression, physical and emotional trauma, spirituality and other life issues. The individual level of focus often helps individuals achieve permanent changes in their substance use behaviors. Therapy will address major lifestyle, attitudinal and behavioral issues that have the potential to undermine the goal of wellness and recovery or inhibit the individual’s ability to cope with major life tasks without the non-medical use of addictive substances.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

With 24-hour accountability and supervision, residential treatment is ideal for patients needing a safe and structured living environments, providing additional time for stabilization and recovery skill development. Daily groups, individual and family counseling and education/experiential sessions are designed to address physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the disease of addiction. Patients develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their disease, laying the foundation for recovery and healing. Active, daily participation in a 12-step fellowship is critical to developing a sober support network a patient can take with them when they leave or inpatient care. Relapse prevention is an important part of every patient’s program, not just those with a history of frequent attempts at sobriety. With a minimum of thirty days recommended, the length of stay is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy is a form of psychotherapy using horses as an instrument of therapeutic healing. At Harbor of Grace Enhanced Recovery Center, their certified equine therapist is also a licensed chemical dependency counselor. The therapist uses her horses to facilitate emotional growth and healing, often assisting clients who are resistant to traditional therapy.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health. All patient suites at Harbor of Grace Enhanced Recovery Center have full, updated kitchens stocked with plenty of fresh, healthy groceries. Patients are able to make healthy choices that accommodate all dietary preferences.

Creative Arts Therapy

At Harbor of Grace Enhanced Recovery Center, they employ a wide range of therapy methods proven to remove obstacles to progress, including art and music therapy. Art therapy helps alcoholics and addicts alleviate stress, learn to communicate constructively, and explore different aspects of their own personalities. Their art therapist works with patients in a small group setting conducive to personal expression. Long an accepted method of treatment, music therapy helps patients address physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of individuals through a combination of creating, singing, moving to and/or listening to music. Research on art and music therapy supports their effectiveness in many areas, including overall physical rehabilitation, increased motivation for treatment and greater emotional support for clients and their families through expression.
