LEARN TO MAINTAIN SOBRIETY IN A
While each phase has a general timeframe, our team tailors a program to fit each resident’s needs and situation, collaborating with her support system to decide when to progress.
While each phase has a general timeline, we work with the resident and their families to decide when to progress. Involvement from their support system reinforces the importance of community and allows everyone to feel comfortable and confident in the recovery process.
BUILDING A FOUNDATION FOR RECOVERY
Phase one is typically the first 90 days of the program. Residents are more intensively monitored in this phase to ensure they stay committed to their plan, house rules, and step work for both safety and program success.
What to Expect in Phase One
Of Long-Term Addiction Treatment
Daily spirituality and meditation exercises
Group therapy sessions, twice daily, covering topics such as 12 Step Immersion, anger management, life skills, processing, and motivation
Weekly processing group therapy
Twice weekly DBT
Weekly intensive individual therapy sessions incorporating CBT, DBT, and Grief/Trauma Processing, with an option for EMDR
Weekly yoga sessions
In the first week, residents also participate in a psychiatric evaluation with a partner provider, who will determine the frequency of future sessions based on the needs of each individual.
One example is a weekly shopping trip where residents purchase the supplies and personal items needed for the week. The seemingly simple tasks of planning for the week ahead, organizing a list, and budgeting go a long way in rebuilding confidence and self-reliance.
Entertainment & Recreation
Rekindling a sense of joy and passion is a powerful motivation to continue on the path to lifelong sobriety. At A Reprieve for Women, we find moments of happiness through exploring nature, service to others, and family-style fun.
Our residents take trips to local wilderness parks and botanical gardens, volunteer at animal shelters and food banks, and enjoy movie screenings, game nights, pool parties, and other creative activities each week.
A Healthy Mind and Body
A healthy mind and body are a core part of long-term recovery. At A Reprieve for Women, we believe wholeheartedly in the importance of physical health in maintaining long-term sobriety. Our residents have a fitness membership and meet with a personal trainer four times a week, developing a fitness plan and pace that fits their bodies and mindset.
Additionally, the Reprieve employs a full-time chef who cooks delicious and healthy meals for our women. Chef Lakinda encourages residents to participate in meal planning and prep, creating a home-like atmosphere where the kitchen is the heart. At alumni gatherings, the memories made in the kitchen, and the meals, are always a topic of conversation!
ESTABLISHING A LIFE IN SOBRIETY
For most residents, phase two begins after they have completed 90 days of the program. With a focus on practicing a balanced lifestyle, this phase of our recovery program emphasizes life skills and personal and professional exploration through interactions with the outside community. While residents become more self-dependent, our staff, alumni, and peers are still a constant presence, supporting them through challenges and celebrating triumphs.
Opportunities for Education
Our staff will work alongside each resident, examining their progress to determine the most fitting course load. While group sessions are encouraged, they are optional for those with jobs or a full-time course load. Psychiatric appointments, individual therapy, and outside meetings are still mandatory.
Return to Work
Returning to or joining the workforce allows our residents to apply their newly learned skills in a different environment while building greater self-reliance and independence. While the responsibilities and stress of a job can become overwhelming for people in early recovery, our staff is there to show them healthy and effective ways to manage these real-world emotions.
