When a new resident is admitted into our addiction treatment program, they are assigned a primary counselor that works with them throughout their stay. Primary counselors are professionally licensed for offering drug and alcohol treatment therapies. This counselor works individually with the resident on their personalized treatment plan. They are available for one-on-one therapy sessions with clients, as well as family sessions during our effective family program. Primary counselors are also available to help women residents in preparing for recovery. They help them in preparing the best course of action for a continuing plan for the recovery process.
Another area of individualized help comes with diagnosis and treating mental health disorders. The National Association for the Mentally Ill estimates that 37% of those suffering from alcoholism also are dealing with at least one mental health disorder. Alcohol addiction programs have come a long way with treating co-occurring disorders. They now have an integration of care and therapy to help individuals with both concerns through dual diagnosis. The approach provides a recovery plan both for alcohol and the disorder.
We can and will help you with intervention as well. It can take intervention sometimes to confront the alcoholic and get them to agree to alcohol treatment. We associate and work with many of the leading interventionists and services available. We even have one on our staff, Mr. Keith Fierman CADC, BRI II. As the Director of Family Services for Cirque Lodge, Keith can assess your needs and connect you with an intervention provider. He serves on the board of directors to the Association of Intervention Specialists. You may contact him by calling here to the Lodge, or directly on his cell phone at (205) 533-2489.
