At East Coast Recovery Center, your journey doesn’t stop when you graduate from our treatment program. We walk with you far beyond our programming. We believe that maintaining a network of program alumni and utilizing partners within the community helps to solidify sobriety, so we can choose permanent recovery, together.
Dual Diagnosis is a condition where someone simultaneously suffers from substance abuse and a mental health disorder. Generally, when a person experiences a traumatic event (PTSD) or envelopes a behavioral/mental issue like depression, anxiety, or Bipolar Disorder without proper treatment, those affected tend to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol. Dual Diagnosis is quite common and it’s estimated that over 7.9 million Americans suffer from it.
Recovery and support for people with substance use or mental health disorders needs to go beyond the individual. Research has shown that including families in this recovery process can increase the chances of success during treatment.
But many times families do not know how to support their loved ones. When families are left out of the equation, dysfunction may continue to exist. Teaching families how to solve conflicts and how to positively communicate within their family unit can be a powerful part of recovery.
To understand how the recovery process works and how to best help their loved ones, families may need their own counseling.
At East Coast Recovery, we employ highly qualified, compassionate, medical professionals that are skilled at determining exactly the level of care that may apply to your unique situation upon your arrival to our facility. Our three levels of care include partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient (IOP), and outpatient programs.
The intensive outpatient (IOP) program at East Coast Recovery Center is specifically designed for those that may require an elevated level of addiction treatment while still living at home. This program is also designed for people who may require more support than once-a-week outpatient sessions. We realize that life doesn’t stop in the face of addiction issues. That’s why our IOP program can provide you or your loved one with the high level of recovery support that they need while still allowing them to fulfill obligations in their personal lives.
Medication assisted treatment, sometimes called MAT, is one of a suite of treatment options for individuals addicted to specific drugs. For people addicted to opioids, including heroin and some prescription pain medication, MAT may be the safest and most effective type of treatment available.
The partial hospitalization (PHP) program at East Coast Recovery has been developed to address all of the treatment needs that are addressed by traditional residential treatment programs. In this level of care, you will attend both group and individual counseling sessions during the day, while staying at our sober-living residence at night. PHP at East Coast Recovery Center is perfect for those who are new to addiction treatment programs or those that require an elevated level of care in their battle with substance use.
Trauma-informed care is our method of practice that puts patients and their experiences above their addictions or mental illnesses. Early childhood trauma is often the root cause of mental health and behavioral issues. Through trauma-informed care, we support patients by recognizing and responding to signs and symptoms of trauma as we determine the best form of treatment.
The principles of trauma-informed care start with realizing the impact that trauma has on individuals and its effects throughout an individual’s life. The first step in creating a trauma-informed care practice is to ensure the physical and emotional safety of each patient. We develop trust between patients, their support staff, and clinicians, and strive for patient-centered care.
All staff are trained to understand and recognize how trauma affects physical and mental health, while being sensitive to racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds as well as gender identity. We keep patients involved and collaborate with patients when deciding treatment goals and the care process.
