Medically supervised detoxification is provided at our 20 bed inpatient facility in Mesa. The detox process is monitored 24 hours per day by trained professionals; including certified addiction doctors, registered nurses, behavioral health technicians and drug/alcohol counselors. To alleviate discomfort and minimize risks, medications are prescribed at the discretion of our medical practitioners. Detox services are typically provided for three to seven days, depending on the individual needs of the patient. While at our facility, patients can enjoy home cooked meals, recreational activities, group counseling, and acupuncture and chiropractic services.
This is the most often overlooked component of a treatment center and is frequently the most crucial time for a client’s recovery to either prosper or diminish; strictly based on length of time sober (30 to 90 days). It can often be overwhelming to leave residential treatment and move right into a sober living community that may contain dozens of people or a population that has much more clean/sober time. The secondary, or sometimes referred to as PHP level of care, is utilized to gain that extra confidence someone may need before taking a big leap into sober living and an outpatient program. All the members of this facility will have around the same time clean/sober and will be moving away from a highly structured residential program to a day patient program where important life skills are starting to be introduced. This level of care can last from a few weeks to a few months depending on a client’s needs, treatment time frame, and progress.
Sober Living with Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Coupled with regular outpatient attendance, the sober living exists to provide the necessary support and structure in a living environment, while creating an inviting community oriented atmosphere. We utilize a social model recovery community to motivate our clients to participate in their own recovery. Throughout their stay, clients will build upon values such as trust and accountability, which may have been muted during their addiction. Basic self-care skills are addressed on a daily basis because it is believed to be easier to maintain a mentally clear state when incorporating it with a physically clean environment. Inviting accommodations are provided to remind our clients how tremendous life can be when making the right choices. Transportation to necessary appointments and meetings are arranged on a regular basis. Clients will learn how to put into practice the 12-step principles and strengthen the foundations that lead to healthy and productive lives. All components within the sober living program were created to be effective at reshaping addicts or alcoholics lives when used in conjunction with the outpatient treatment.
Our treatment philosophy places a great deal of importance on an extended length of time in a structured treatment environment. Sober living on its own tends to leave its residents with a substantial amount of down time that may lead to unproductive thoughts or activities. At Soba, all clients are enrolled in an outpatient program that continues their recovery efforts all the way through their stay. Client participate in our outpatient program during the day at an office location near our sober living community. Many clients stay within our treatment program for up to a year. As a client progresses through their recovery, the structure of his/her living environment and outpatient criteria adjusts to meet their needs. Towards the end of a client’s stay, they will have been taught many daily living skills, working toward long term goals and may even obtain employment while attending a less intense outpatient program and living in the sober living community. The goal of Soba’s extended care is to prepare each individual with the tools to face the roller coaster of life. Soba’s staff works with the belief that if they spend quality time and effort treating a client’s addiction for an extended period once, then that client may not have to visit multiple treatment centers and have multiple relapses before achieving long-term recovery.
