The Antrim House features a modern kitchen and dining area as well as chef prepared meals daily.

How 12-Steps Are Implemented in Recovery



The 12-step model is only one part of the comprehensive support that we provide. Clients are encouraged to attend 12 step meetings in the surrounding communities. Clients do not have to follow the 12 step model in our treatment program


A Proven Methodology



Leadership workshops help develop strength-based characteristics. Our alcohol and drug rehab programs are unique in showing patients ways to apply those skills to a life in recovery and to enhance relationships. We teach patients how to work well with others, apply controlled thinking and positive attitude, and strengthen their ability to go the extra mile. The seminars use various learning modalities including activities, worksheets and discussion questions.



Assessment



Assessment plays a critical role in developing an effective, personalized care plan. Following the guidelines of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, our licensed clinicians perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine each patients’s specific needs.

This biopsychosocial evaluation gather information about the following:

Medical Symptoms & History

We will assess whether our patient is suffering any physical illness, independent of or as a result of substance abuse. Our clinicians address medical problems early on, providing treatment to enhance recovery and prevent medical complications.

Substance Use

Here, we will determine the nature of the addiction. Our clinicians gather a full report on the substances used, prior efforts to quit, effects of use, and associated problems.

Psychiatric of Psychological Symptoms & History

Our clinicians will look for psychiatric illnesses or symptoms of co-occurring disorders, such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD to fully address these problems in our patient’s care.

Family and/or Employment Issues

Our team will address the repercussions of addiction that our patient may be experiencing. We will provide services or referrals for life skills training or employment issues that poise you for a life of recovery well beyond your stay.

Following these assessments, our team will create a detailed report of our patient’s health, helping to inform our clinical treatment plan.

Upon completion of our various drug and alcohol evaluations, our team will develop the patient’s personalized treatment. The treatment plan is a customized clinical treatment program based on the individual patient’s needs, under the guidance of a licensed clinician and medical director.

A patient’s treatment may include:

  • Inpatient treatment
  • Cognitive behavioral therapies
  • Family therapy
  • Individual therapy
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Recovery support services
  • Self-help groups

Medications in Treatment

  • Our program is designed to solve many of the biggest problems that exist among our nation’s fragmented drug and alcohol treatment centers. We take the time to understand the underlying issues surrounding the substance use and treat the whole person.
  • We practice the application of evidence-based treatment and acknowledge that this can be delivered in various modalities and levels of care.
  • The use of medication-assisted programs (like Suboxone, Vivitrol, buprenorphine products and other medications as needed) are important parts of the continuum of care but do not serve as the only options for individuals struggling with addiction.

Individual Therapy

One on one therapy with a case manager, doctor or therapist is an effective practice for alcohol and drug addiction help and treatment.

Family Therapy

Addiction affects the entire family.

We are continuing to build on our comprehensive Family Workshop. We believe that treating the whole family is essential to recovery.

Our Family Systems workshops assist the patient in developing healthy relationships, enhancing communication skills, identifying family roles, and learning how to conquer shame within the family.
