For many, the idea of returning home after treatment can be very anxiety provoking. Apex Recovery aims to alleviate most of that anxiety by helping our clients get connected with resources in the communities that they live and work in. A case manager will work with each and every one of our clients to help them get connected to resources to assist them in maintaining their new healthy life free of drugs and alcohol. These resources can include; individual therapist, support groups, and referrals to medical professionals. Unlike most treatment centers our clients have access to a case manager who will continue to provide resources and referrals to clients for up to a year after their discharge date.
Apex Recovery is aware how important resources are to not only our clients but to their families as well. A case manager will also be happy to provide resources to family members so that they too can heal from the difficulty of having a loved one battling with drugs and alcohol. These resources can include; codependence anonymous, Al-Anon, and support groups.
All of the intake staff at Apex Recovery have extensive training and clinical experience in assisting family members to start the conversation with loved ones about treatment. Apex Recovery is happy to have a sit-down meeting with any potential clients that are considering treatment. For those individuals not in the San Diego area, we are happy to connect you with local intervention specialist in your area.
Seeking treatment can be extremely daunting for individuals dealing with substance abuse. Many times, they are seeking treatment after they have had to “hit rock bottom”. The ability to seek out support from family can be difficult for someone who has watched their life deteriorate around them, maybe losing jobs, or terminating family and friend relationships, ultimately isolating themselves. Often times, we find that substance abuse tends to affect the entire family, not just the individual participating in substance abuse. Therefore, seeking substance abuse treatment can lead to an opportunity to repair and mend such relationships as well as developing an understanding of the addiction itself.
When an individual enters into treatment with Apex Recovery, family inclusion becomes a priority. Research has shown that actively involving family members in treatment not only benefits the individual but allows a family to make a positive impact on sobriety and that when family is included, individuals are more likely to maintain abstinence. Founded on the theories of Marriage and Family Therapy, individuals at Apex are assisted in repairing and rebuilding their familial relationships through learning relationship skills, conflict resolution, and problem-solving techniques.
While at Apex, clients will have the opportunity to have family members participate in relationship therapy, with the goal of creating a family system that promotes health and well-being for all individuals. We firmly believe that removing a person from their family has no long-term benefit, and as a result, our client’s loved ones are included from admission through discharge planning. Families will be provided the opportunity to visit, consult with our therapeutic staff and participate in family activities facilitated by our clinical staff. Additionally, family, friends and loved ones will be provided with support to develop healthy boundaries, develop a self-care plan and actively participate in recovery planning.
