Crossroads – Pure Heart Intensive Outpatient Program
Crossroads at Pure Heart is an intensive outpatient program with an emphasis on relapse prevention trauma and wellness for individuals in recovery from substance use order. The program seeks to build confidence and positivity in each client through a holistic treatment approach. Engagement in health and wellness activities improves the mind and bodies overall health and can lead to reduction in cravings and less desires to use substances. We offer clients a 12 week minimum program, meeting 4 times per week Monday through Thursday for 3 hour sessions.
The wellness program involves supervised access to Pure Heart’s state of the art gym facility for clients to engage in guided exercise. Supplementing traditional behavioral group therapy with nutrition education and physical exercise can stimulate reintroduction of healthy endorphins and other natural brain chemicals which result in protective effects for individuals in recovery. Participation in the wellness program can help individuals manage stress, improve sleep and mood, and strengthen overall health. Each group session involves 60 minutes of wellness activity.
RELAPSE PREVENTION & TRAUMA BASED CARE
Groups will use the Seeking Safety curriculum that addresses both substance use and trauma. The curriculum allows client’s trauma to be addressed without requiring clients to delve into trauma processing. Because of the prevalence of trauma in the Crossroads population, this curriculum is relevant to a wide range of individuals.
The foundational component of programming involves traditional group behavioral therapy where clients continue their development of coping skills to prevent relapse through peer group interaction. Groups involve psycho-education and use of peer community support services.
We ask “what happened” as opposed to “what is wrong with you.”
We understand that when someone has been traumatized their responses might be black & white or “all or nothing”
We understand that substance use, eating disorders, violent behavior, depression or anxiety as a possible symptoms of trauma
We respect, support, inform, connect and give hope that “post-traumatic growth” is real and can happen to them
We know that someone with trauma is 7 times more likely to struggle with alcohol and 10 times more likely to use illicit drugs
