Treatment and Staff
When a client enters the program at Easthaven, they are expected to have either recently completed a residential treatment program or are currently participating in a basic outpatient or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Everyone is required to get a job, volunteer or register for school so the facility offers both day and night treatment schedules. On-site weekly individual therapy sessions, daily meditation, anger management, coping skills and relapse prevention group sessions are all required. On average, clients participate in six group sessions per week, though the number may differ from client to client depending on work and school schedules.
The programs are based on the 12 steps and utilize evidence based therapy methods like CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). AA meetings are hosted on-site and clients are also encouraged to attend community AA/NA meetings to develop a recovery fellowship. There are medication management services provided that are strictly monitored by the facility staff. The average length of stay at Easthaven is three months, though clients can stay longer if it is deemed necessary.
The facility organizes sober events and recreational activities like dinners, movie nights, BBQs and softball tournaments. Clients may have visitors daily. Weekend passes are given after clients have been in the program for about 30 days.
