The goal of SOBA Recovery Center is not only to create a safe and stable environment for our clients, but it’s to prepare them for “life after treatment”. Having developed the foundations of a healthy body and mind as well as healthy decision making and behavior, clients enter Phase II and begin planning for the future.
In Phase II, clients also begin to develop on their own autonomy. In addition to the clinical treatment they receive for drug and alcohol, they perform necessary daily and weekly functions; everything from shopping for their own food to taking part in leisure and adventure activities of their choosing. Alternatively, clients can also attend a 12-Step Programs of their choosing or alternative programs like SMART Recovery. Toward the end of this phase, the feelings of uneasiness and anxiety begin to be replaced by the excitement of the opportunities set before them.
PHASE II Resources and Treatment
Clients in Phase II maintain access to weekly individual therapy sessions as well as attending group session. Psychiatric care and medication management services continue as needed, and individualized treatment modalities begin to tailor the growing needs of the individual in this crucial developmental period.
- Skills Development: development of a specified skill in relation to group topic (e.g. Communication, Relapse Prevention, Life Skills)
- Support and Recovery: Our Support and Recovery Groups are focused on peers supporting, providing feedback and helping each other through relating, displaying empathy and understanding. Although each client as an individualized treatment plan created, we find that there are some underlying characteristic all clients relate with one another about.
- Interpersonal Process Groups: These groups are focused on using peer groups as an opportunity for healing. Our Interpersonal Process Groups are facilitated by our clinicians.
- Problem-Solving: Cognitive restructuring is the basic method for change.
- Creative/Expressive Groups: Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Acting in Recovery.
- Psychoeducational Groups: Structured group focused on enhancing client’s knowledge and providing resources.
Case Managers continue to seamlessly provide guidance to clients as progress from Phase I and act as the main point of contact for family members. This is the time to implement planning for career success through education and employment opportunities in the Los Angeles area, through the guidance and close development of each client’s needs.
Our support staff is ever present for clients. As the clients begin returning to their lives (either working, learning or volunteering in the local community) our support staff acts as a integral part of the transition. Our clients maintain access to support staff 24 hours a day through their length of treatment.Detox & Residential Supportive Living
