Based out of Winston-Salem in North Carolina, Full Life Counseling is a behavioral health organization founded in 2008. Though it was once a sober living home, it has since converted into a facility that provides flexible and individualized outpatient treatment for clients struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, all participants go through a series of “pre-treatment services” to determine what course of treatment would best suit their needs. Although not as thorough as a full assessment or bio-psycho-social screening, clients still go through basic questioning about their history of abuse before continuing to treatment. The two main care tracks are the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Pre-IOP tracks. IOP meets for 12 weeks for 10 hours a week, typically Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6 to 9 pm. Pre-IOP, on the other hand, meets four days a week and is only available between IOP cycles.
In general, IOP includes both individual and group therapy with evidence-based treatment practices like Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) and encouragement to attend off-site 12-step meetings. Groups cover many topics including relapse prevention, psychoeducation, life skills and trigger identification. All participants are also expected to submit to weekly drug tests to ensure that they’re staying sober. The Pre-IOP track also includes a host of holistic groups as well, often focused on meditation, mindfulness training and yoga. While basic support may be available for issues of anxiety and depression, those in need of more intensive psychiatric care may need to seek additional help elsewhere.
The staff at Full Life Transitions consists of the founder and clinical director, the resident manager and recovery coach, two licensed counselors, an office manager and a part-time PhD therapist.
The program also emphasizes community building through pizza nights and other social activities. Those seeking recovery coaching can also work in these sessions through the organization for an additional fee. Support for food addiction is also provided whenever necessary, along with special counseling for co-dependency. Those who complete a primary care plan can also work with the staff to develop stepped-down aftercare plans.
Overall, Full Life Transitions is a well-rounded organization offering flexible outpatient plans to clients in need. Treatment comes in several different intensities and includes evidence-based counseling, 12-step support, holistic methods and a communal atmosphere. While clients seeking more intensive dual diagnosis support may want to find additional help as well, Full Life Transitions remains a strong resource for those in the area.
