At the Power House Residential Drug Treatment Center we believe that a program should consist of true individualization of programming. By offering a wide range of groups we can tailor the treatment experience to each individual. We also believe that the true power of change is within the context of individual counseling sessions where the client can truly feel safe and comfortable. Here is an example of the group clinical programming we utilize at the Power House Residential Drug Treatment Center:

 

Motivation for Change

 

Motivation for change helps the clients begin to think about aspects of motivation that govern decisions to change behavior.

 

Positive Approach

 

Focus is placed on such topics as positive emotions, optimism, gratitude, creativity, humor, goal setting, accomplishments, spirituality, optimal “flow”, values and character strengths, and resilience plus much more. Clients work through the utilization of character strengths to build a foundation for recovery. This group steps away from the pathogenic disease model and takes a more traditional approach to life, which places focus on well-being.

 

Conflict Resolution

 

A skilled-based therapeutic training book that is focused on the brain, specifically how it works in conflict and how to affect the quality of recovery in relationships. These tools have been designed to help reduce relapse and sustain recovery of adult and adolescent substance use, abuse and dependent persons by improving their knowledge, attitudes and skills.  This kit includes a Facilitator’s Guide that features talking points, exercises and role plays that focus around the course themes, as well as tips for interacting with groups and individual/family/couple clients around substance abuse conflict resolution issues, visual aids and evaluation forms and a Participant Workbook that outlines key concepts, provides visuals that reinforce content and includes homework assignments and personal exercise sheets.

 

Relapse Prevention Group

 

Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT) is a behavioral self-control program that teaches individuals with substance addiction how to anticipate and cope with the potential for relapse. RPT can be used as a stand-alone substance use treatment program or as an aftercare program to sustain gains achieved during initial substance use treatment. Coping skills training is the cornerstone of RPT, teaching client’s strategies to:

 

 

  • Understand relapse as a process

  • Identify and cope effectively with high-risk situations such as negative emotional states, interpersonal conflict, and social pressure

  • Cope with urges and craving

  • Implement damage control procedures during a lapse to minimize negative consequences

  • Stay engaged in treatment even after a relapse

  • Learn how to create a more balanced lifestyle

 

Coping skills training strategies include both cognitive and behavioral techniques. Cognitive techniques provide clients with ways to re-frame the habit change process as a learning experience with errors and setbacks expected as mastery develops. Behavioral techniques include the use of lifestyle modifications such as meditation, exercise, and spiritual practices to strengthen a client's overall coping capacity.
