Our recovery program is effective because we meet each woman where she is in her recovery process. Many times they “can’t see the forest for the trees” so we focus on not only the addiction (trees) but also the underlying mental health issues (forest). –Shawn Webb-Young LCDCI, Recovery Program Coordinator
You’ll develop new and productive perspectives about creating a healthy, strong and influential life. We help you see the maladaptive thoughts, behaviors and underlying core issues that fuel your addiction. At the core, what makes you unique? What are your personal strengths? And how can you contribute to the world around you in meaningful ways? Let’s answer those questions.
Recovery is tough work. Your willingness to do the work is related to how comfortable and connected you feel with supportive programming. That’s why our first goal is to match you with the program that makes sense. Our treatment teams meet with you in group settings and private sessions. With them, you’ll address goals and aspirations in the context of your recovery program. We’re flexible and able to meet your individual needs, and we always honor your perspective on sobriety and recovery.
If you’re struggling with an addictive disorder, you’ll also receive recovery-focused treatment that includes additional groups and individual sessions, options to participate in 12-step programs, relapse prevention planning, family programming and a life skills curriculum. Fulshear utilizes the following curricula in both group and individual sessions: My Personal Journal by The Change Companies and A Woman’s Way through The Twelve Steps by Stephanie Covington.
Recovery & Chemical Dependency Groups
During process groups led by our certified addictions counselors, you’ll be exposed to various support mechanisms that strengthen your path in recovery. Many of these, such as 12-step programs, allow you to begin relying on peers and key staff members for support and encouragement. As you build supportive relationships in which you can relate to others with similar struggles, you come to see that a life without alcohol and other drugs can be rewarding, productive and exciting. These educational groups provide a foundation of knowledge and support to help you flourish with new and healthy coping mechanisms.
Our program includes the opportunity to meet with your recovery counselor on a weekly basis. These sessions are designed to explore a variety of issues unique to your recovery path including 12-step assignments, stress management techniques, conceptions of spirituality, coping mechanisms, or locating support groups in your home communities. You’ll benefit greatly from focused attention on your needs, concerns and interests.
Statistics show that approximately 65% of all relapses occur within the first 90 days of recovery, highlighting the critical need for thorough and well-structured relapse prevention plans as a vital component of successful and sustained recovery.
Our counselors assist you with developing individualized relapse prevention plans to ensure that your recovery is consistent during and after treatment.
During the quarterly Family Program, we provide your parents and family members with an in-depth opportunity to discuss and explore your recovery process. We update appropriate family members about your recovery path during weekly family therapy sessions with your primary therapist.
Life Skills Programming
To ensure success during transition and after graduation, you’ll participate in extensive life skills classes and individualized sessions. Here, we provide you with knowledge and abilities to enhance your academic talents, career planning abilities, and financial management expertise, which support your new sober life in a holistic way.
Access to AA/NA/SMART Meetings
We’re fully committed to supporting and strengthening you in your recovery. One way we help is by having our Recovery Program Coordinator attend AA/NA/SMART meetings with you. Once you transition to independent living, we provide transportation for you to attend AA/NA/SMART meetings seven days a week.
