Treatment and Staff
Treatment at APR begins with an assessment which enables staff to create an individualized treatment plan for each client depending on their recovery needs. These treatment plans allow each client to have a tailored experience with the most fitting combination of individual and group therapy. Clients work with assigned therapists to arrange treatment schedules that work with their home and work obligations. The program also incorporates the 12-step program and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
Besides counseling, APR utilizes mediation to treat clients holistically—engaging the mind, body and spirit in recovery. APR also provides education presentations to inform the public on subjects related to alcohol and other drugs through community and school programs. Topics may include subjects such as the basics of alcoholism and drug addiction, the recovery process, family issues, social and community issues, health related matters, bullying and public policy.
Aftercare is available for clients wishing to maintain their connection with APR and their primary counselor after completion of treatment.
Atlantic Prevention Resources practices an effective approach to treatment that combines counseling, meditation and a strong involvement in the recovery community. Recovery at Atlantic Prevention Resources is considered an ongoing process that requires the support of peers, community and families.
