Making Sense of Addiction
The mission of Thrive treatment is to help our clients initiate a profound and positive change in their lives. Sobriety is just one aspect of this. It is our job to help clients see how their addiction is part of a larger system of emotional, psychological and social difficulties that they have been struggling with for longer than they have been using.
In that sense, we see all addictions as dual diagnoses. While many of these underlying issues are visible to clients and their loved ones, there are often other aspects of their inner lives that cannot be seen. Our goal is to help clients develop insight into these defense mechanisms, believing that insight is the best way to instigate positive and lasting change.
In short, we attempt to help clients make sense of their addiction, thereby reducing internalized shame and confusion about why they are addicts, while illuminating healthier ways to live life without using.
We believe that a combination of modern and traditional therapeutic practices are the best way to reach these goals. Thrive integrates relational and behavioral therapies along with holistic, medical and psychiatric interventions to help clients reach not only sobriety, but also emotional health and lasting well-being.
Upon completion of our intensive outpatient level of care, clients are encouraged to join our supportive alumni community where they continue to receive group therapy twice a week and they will receive access to a flourishing sober network and continued engagement with clinical staff in the same safe environment that helped them heal at the start of their journey.
Single Gender Treatment
We find that a single gender approach helps clients feel more at ease, allowing themselves to become vulnerable in what we consider to be an intimate and inviting setting.
A Relational Approach
There is a fine balance to our approach: both stern and soft, disciplined with space for free spirit; straightforward and filled with compassion. We get into the hole with your loved one, and we climb out together. We believe authentic connection, built on trust, is at the core of the recovery process. The relationships we build with our clients are the foundation of our program.
A New Way to Connect
While treatment experiences can often feel removed from the real world, Thrive aims to create a microcosm for the real world, a space where clients can explore new ways to adapt and connect, cope with their internal and external stressors and communicate effectively.
