Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs
Each year, the disease of chemical dependence affects more than
twenty million Americans, their families, friends, and employers.
Without proper treatment, the prognosis is poor for those suffering
from alcoholism and drug addiction: the body deteriorates, the mind
is damaged, and the spirit is crushed. Identification and treatment
of the disease are critical to the process of arresting and beginning
to mend the damage wrought by addiction.
Support Systems Homes treatment programs offer hope to men and women
and their families suffering from the devastating consequences of
chemical dependency. Our comprehensive system of recovery services
is based on the beliefs that:
1. Abstinence from alcohol and mind-altering drugs must be maintained
in order to effectively treat the disease of addiction.
2. Recovery is an ongoing process and each aspect of life that is
affected by alcohol and drug use must be addressed. We emphasize
treatment of the physical, emotional, spiritual, and family aspects
of addiction and alcoholism.
Ongoing research consistently demonstrates that education and outreach
are the keys to removing the social stigma often encountered by
recovering addicts and alcoholics. An approach that combines treatment
of the mind, body, and spirit with education and skills development
is the key to the lifelong journey of recovery. By using scientifically-based
and tested treatment components, Support Systems Homes can affect
positive outcomes for those seeking treatment for chemical dependence.
Treatment at Support Systems Homes is the beginning of a new and
better way of life. We provide extensive exposure to recovery principles,
and work to remove barriers that may prevent acceptance of those
principles. This is accomplished in a warm, peer-oriented environment,
guided by a compassionate, professional staff.
Alcoholism is defined by the American Medical Association (AMA)
as a chronic, progressive, and ultimately fatal disease. To address
the devastating impact of alcoholism and drug addiction on all facets
of life, we offer several levels of care, which are not time-limited.
From Social Model Detoxification to Residential, Outpatient, Day
Treatment, and Sober Living, Support Systems Homes provides supportive,
substance-free environments with varying amounts of structure. Thus,
the often difficult transition back into mainstream society can
be accomplished with a minimum of chaos.
Staff and program participants work together as a team to develop
individualized treatment plans that treat the being as a whole -
body, mind and spirit. Team-based treatment and aftercare planning,
alcohol and drug education, exposure to 12 step recovery principles,
and participation in 12 step programs and the local recovery community
are integral parts of our curriculum.
Building a strong network of support is essential for recovering
addicts and alcoholics to maintain sobriety and grow in recovery.
Support Systems Homes recognizes this, and in response, founded
an alumni association that sponsors year-round social and recreational
activities, as well as an aftercare program to help keep clients
involved in recovery.
