Rules and Regulations
Prior to admission, clients must have completed a minimum of 30 days of primary care at a drug rehab. At Constellations Recovery, there are two protocols offered—the Phase Program and the Executive Program.
The phase program recommends a 90-day length of stay, but also accommodates clients who can only commit on a month-to-month basis. The first phase, or Atlas, is comprised of a nine hour per week Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), which includes group and individual therapy. This phase also features case management, equine therapy and life coaching. Weekly attendance at five 12-step meetings, as well as the in-house meeting is mandatory. During Atlas, clients are supervised by staff around the clock. In order to progress to the next phase, clients must receive approval from their case managers.
The second stage or the Navigating phase incorporates the elements of the first phase. Additionally, clients must search for work or volunteer opportunities or pursue an academic education. The third phase, aptly named The Voyage helps clients re-enter society. It includes three hours of IOP, 12-step and house meetings, service work and participation in employment, community service or an academic curriculum.
The Executive program is customized around a working professional’s schedule. Executive clients are provided with transportation to and from work. At Constellations Recovery, clients undergo random drug testing. Those that test positive are dismissed from the premises.
Aftercare includes two weekly individual sessions and attendance at 12-step meetings. Sober companion services are provided, at additional cost.
Constellations Recovery provides a holistic approach to recovery. The serene setting and plentiful therapeutic activities allow clients opportunities to focus on healing their minds, bodies and spirits. For busy execs and those seeking a luxurious sober living home in the Westchester county suburbs, which are only about 35 miles away from New York City, Constellations Recovery is a perfect match.
