After receiving treatment for a substance abuse disorder, only about 12% of the general population remains sober for a period greater than one year. However, studies have shown that 78 % of doctors, lawyers and pilots who have undergone treatment for substance abuse stay sober for one year or more post treatment. Why such a profound difference? The reason is that in order to keep working in their chosen profession doctors, lawyers and pilots must engage in a program of recovery lasting several years – resulting in their remarkable 78% success rate.
In short, drug rehabilitation centers provide stabilization and education. The T.R.U.S.T. program offers long-term case management based on the principals, practices and success of the programs used to treat doctors, lawyers and pilots. But T.R.U.S.T. is for everyone, including the family.
How T.R.U.S.T. Works
Our comprehensive case management includes:
Addiction creates crisis. We believe that the best way to deal with the crisis is to have all affected by it be a part of the healing, we support the entire family through this process.
- We consult the family and other concerned persons and create a long-term monitoring plan.
- We coordinate specialized services based on the needs of the family.
- We provide screening, intervention services, education workshops.
- We provide referrals to treatment, relapse prevention and continued care planning.
The T.R.U.S.T. Process Proceeds As Follows:
- First Call
The process begins with a phone call from a family member, treatment provider, medical provider, employer, concerned person or legal professional expressing concern for an individual or family in crisis.
- Initial Assessment and Intervention
During the assessment, information is collected from the referral source and passed on to the licensed interventionist for the purpose of planning, implementing and executing a supportive intervention with the individual and their family.
- Formal Evaluation
The formal evaluation takes place with the therapist assigned to the individual and the family. This thorough evaluation may consist of two sessions and requires the participation of both the primary therapist and the family therapist.
At the completion of the formal evaluation, the T.R.U.S.T. Team creates a treatment plan. This plan may include recreational therapy, psychiatric evaluation, nutrition planning, physical fitness assessment and urine testing. At this time we also provide case management and recommendations for coaching and relapse prevention. Within the course of care we encourage mentorship, 12-Step and other community-based support. Once treatment begins, we update referral sources and other support services.
- Long-Term Monitoring
Once the individual and family are stabilized after the crisis of addiction the T.R.U.S.T. team provides the support, accountability and action – acting as the bridge between treatment and long-term recovery. Our support keeps all parties on track. We employ random drug testing procedures to enhance accountability and stay in constant communication with the many disciplines within T.R.U.S.T. Team, the family and outpatient services. Our long-term planning services span one to three years.
- Relapse Prevention
Our goal is to prevent and significantly lower the incidence of relapse. To reach this goal the addicted individual and the family must become aware of relapse triggers and warning signs. To do this we create and fine-tune a comprehensive physical and emotional relapse plan for everyone – including the family.
