Every man's recovery journey is unique. At Real Recovery, we work with each client to create a plan for their path to recovery. Here’s what you can expect your son’s time at Real Recovery to look like:
Understand Client Needs
The team at Real Recovery collaborates with the client, their family and their treatment providers to develop an individualized path to recovery. The plan is customized to help clients incorporate sobriety into a meaningful, purposeful, autonomous and fun life.
Determine Level of Care
Clients whose sober living treatment needs require more than Real Recovery can provide will be referred to a trusted and appropriately matched inpatient program. Some clients at Real Recovery will need primary treatment prior to entering sober living at Real Recovery.
Develop Recovery Plan
The individualized recovery plan is holistic and incorporates the specific needs of each individual served at Real Recovery. Each plan addresses the psychological, spiritual, financial, educational and vocational needs of the client.
Structured and Supported Integration:
All clients of Real Recovery receive a comprehensive clinical assessment upon arrival and receive a clinical programming recommendation that is based on their unique needs and medical requirements. Intensive Outpatient Programming for substance abuse may be recommended for clients who have not previously participated in addiction treatment, typically for the first 6-9 weeks of residency at Real Recovery. Other clients might participate in individual or family therapy, and some may be referred to outpatient psychiatric treatment. Each resident at Real Recovery has a recovery plan designed to meet their specific needs.
Build Relationships with Peers
Through adventure-based programming, 12-step meetings and house activities, residents at Real Recovery participate in a peer-support model of recovery that honors each person’s path to recovery.
Participate in Structured Recovery
House managers who have the subjective experience of early recovery utilize house meetings and structured activities to ensure that each client at Real Recovery is supported in the transition into real recovery.
Receive Mentoring and Support
Real Recovery focuses on helping young men to forge meaningful paths in sobriety. Early recovery is often difficult for young men; coping with the realities of life without substances to fall back on can be challenging for even the most motivated individual. Real Recovery residents receive support in money management, life skills and vocational and educational development. Assistance with employment and career selection and the employment application process are all aspects included in Real Recovery’s sober living services, as well as transportation to and from work.
Gain More Responsibilities in Transitional Living
The Ultimate goal of Real Recovery is to support Young men in becoming productive and autonomous in Recovery. In this timeframe, clients will move into the transitional living program at Real Recovery. Providing more autonomy than the Dream House or River House, Transition House helps young men begin their transition into independent living. Residents begin seeking permanent independent living arrangements and look to begin their life of recovery.
