Treatment and Staff
The Create program offers a multi-faceted approach to treatment, integrating several different modalities to provide a well-rounded recovery base. Clients first go through a medical and psychological evaluation to determine their overall health and which forms of treatment will be most beneficial to their recovery. This information is used to form an individualized treatment plan that maps out the course of treatment during the program. Each client is then monitored via case management and the course of care is subject to change depending on the progress of the client.
The length of the program changes according to the needs and progress of each individual client. Plans typically consist of the following elements: individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy and relapse prevention. Peer support is encouraged through off-site 12-step meetings. The therapy implemented during treatment incorporates both CBT and DBT.
