Clients have access to a telephone after their first week of therapy and will call you when ready.
What if we paid all this money and they relapse or are asked to leave?
- They weren’t open to treatment in the first place and only came under pressure or duress from friends and family. That is why it is crucial that the addict/alcoholic made the decision on their own. They must be fully committed to their own sobriety for their own reasons.
- They are dealing with unreal expectations from themselves or loved ones. No one will be cured, and sobriety doesn’t happen overnight. Discussing aftercare, family expectations and setting realistic goals are a must!
- Some clients return to their old lives, old friends and do not make the recommended changes that are needed. They sometimes believe that their only problem was drinking and decide that they can handle drugs or vice versa. They must be willing to use the tools given to them such as utilizing meetings or sponsors and make the recommended changes such as leaving unhealthy friends or jobs before they can expect real sobriety to stick.
If they are asked to leave, it is important to understand that many addicts/alcoholics are intimidated by the work intensive programming, and it is hard for them to take an honest look at their lives and addictions. It would be a challenge for anyone, even sober, healthy people to share their lives with others. Many want to focus on anything but the program and will sometimes revert to old, unhealthy behaviors such as anger, anxiety and deflection.
If your loved one is asked to leave it is because serious house rules were broken, or we felt that they were jeopardizing others safety or their own. Because people in addictions often have mental health issues as well, it is important that our staff have a clear, full picture of the client’s mental and emotional health. Due to the intense nature of our work, the hours of counselling, administrative work and support staff needed to counsel and house your loved one, refunds are not given.
Our staff genuinely want to help our clients and will do our very best to help them succeed! Please read our testimonials to see the success, happiness and sobriety of our clients!
