Parkridge Valley offers treatment for addictive disorders including drug and alcohol addiction. The intensive outpatient program is designed to help adults and seniors achieve long-term abstinence and recovery from addiction while maintaining their normal lifestyles. Treatment consists of education, introducing and reinforcing processes, the inclusion of family and support systems, and aftercare groups as well as an introduction to 12-step concepts.
- Education provides clients with a thorough understanding of the disease and its chronic progression.
- Introduction and reinforcement of processes assists clients in identifying and resolving psychological and social factors that contribute to addiction or substance abuse.
- Family groups offer support by helping clients and family members increase their understanding of family dynamics and by allowing them to discuss the impact addiction has had on the family. It is very important that the clients have a willingness to stop their addiction. It is encouraged that family members be committed to participating in the recovery process.
- Aftercare groups are available for clients who have successfully completed the program. This group focuses on long-term recovery skills and relapse prevention.
