Our men’s treatment program promotes a healthy and productive recovery experience by offering a comfortable, positive and dynamic environment for developing sobriety. Men learn how to manage their unique issues while building the support system necessary to maintain abstinence from unhealthy behaviors. A big part of abstaining involves participation in the local recovery community, which provides a foundation for personal growth. Our goal is to provide the ideal living situation so that our clients have the best chances for success at staying clean and sober.
The Northbound Men’s CORE Program Includes:
- Healthy confrontation
- Learning respect
- Sober fellowship
- Safe environment
Our treatment modalities are research based and proven to effectively disrupt the cycle of addiction through a holistic approach embodying the 12-step principles. By holistic we are referring to treating the whole person, body, mind and spirit. Clinical interventions are crucial to the early recovery process, but long-term sobriety for men comes from a commitment to a 12-step program and overall well-being.
Our men’s treatment program tackles the depression that too often coincides with early recovery but lifts with peer support, exercise and healthy eating. Later in recovery men often come to realize how difficult, if not impossible, it was to feel good while living on donuts, hamburgers and gallons of soda. Effectively dealing with depression and all of its sources is simply part of the process for healing the mind, body, and spirit. During stabilization each of the men in our program is treated as an individual with his own unique, customized plan. Routines are established and men develop connections with other clients and therapeutic alliances with our highly trained staff. The experienced and compassionate clinical staff sets up a map for each client’s unique process of recovery. This client-centered approach creates the comfort and safety necessary to truly begin healing.
At Northbound, our men’s therapy program is much more than simply sitting in a circle and talking. It includes specific therapy, therapeutic education, peer support groups and learning relaxation techniques, all of which help the client acclimate to his recovery. In addition, clients receive instruction and support on nutrition, in recognition that eating well is an essential part of feeling better in lasting recovery. Clients learn how to include the right amount of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals in their diet. All of this takes place in our upscale facilities and beautiful housing, which provide a serene and peaceful environment that encourages healing on many levels.
Our stabilization standards and phase goals were developed by experienced clinicians to ensure a level of care that exceeds treatment standards. In the early phase of recovery, clients begin to gain control of their thoughts and feelings and develop a sense of self. The stabilization phase of treatment also provides hope and understanding to the client’s family and friends. Everyone involved begins to see the path to recovery by understanding mood disorders and mental illness. Stabilization sows the seeds for permanent recovery through personal growth and hope for a brighter future.
