Home of New Vision provides light detox, residential and outpatient substance abuse treatment for adults and adolescents in Washtenaw County, Michigan, and surrounding areas. Located in the college town of Ann Arbor, they have been helping individuals struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders for over 20 years.
Accommodations and Food
Home of New Vision has two gender-specific residential programs and a separate detox facility for adults ages 18 and over. There are six beds in the detox facility, a private home where clients share a room and a bathroom with one other person. Each residential facility is a four-bedroom, three-bathroom home with three clients to a room. Each house has a kitchen, dining room, common room with TV and two rooms for group and individual therapy. Residents have twin beds, individual nightstands, shared dressers and closets. Clients are responsible for tidying up after themselves and doing their own laundry, with washers and dryers provided.
Meals are prepared by the staff and served three times a day in the dining room, with a snack provided after dinner. Special dietary requests are accommodated.
No cell phones or electronic devices are allowed while in program, but clients can smoke in designated areas during breaks.
Treatment and Staff
Clients generally remain in detox for three to five days, during which they are evaluated by a medical team and may attend therapy groups and community support meetings. They are monitored 24 hours a day by an RN and medical technicians. Once detox is out of the way, clients can transition into one of Home of New Vision’s residential homes to begin treatment.
Home of New Vision uses the Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) approach coupled with therapeutic models that recognize the importance of community and peer connections. The premise of the ROSC approach is that there are many pathways to recovery and that traditional treatment services should be combined with alternative therapies. Employment assistance, childcare, case management and housing are provided along with evidence-based practices, peer recovery coaching, acupuncture, meditation and experiential therapy. Education and community-based activities and programs are key.
The length of the residential program is anywhere from 30 to 90 days, depending on progress. Clients begin the day at 6:30 am, with breakfast at 7:15. All residents attend group therapy, recreational therapy and educational classes during the day. There is individual therapy once per week with a Master’s-level therapist, and clients with co-occurring disorders receive psychiatric services and medication management. Group topics include peer pressure, CBT, relapse prevention, coping skills, stress and anxiety management. Gender-specific topics for men and women include self-esteem, trauma and sexual abuse therapy. Educational classes include addiction studies, family dynamics, gender and communication, health and nutrition, and physical education. Two nights per week, 12-step meetings are held on site and one night per week there is a SMART Recovery meeting.
All therapists are Master’s-level and treatment technicians are CSAC certified. The client-to-staff ratio is five-to-one.
Thursday night is family group at Home of New Vision, facilitated by a marriage and family therapist (MFT). Families all meet together for a one-hour substance abuse lecture, followed by individual family meetings with the MFT and the client.
Home of New Vision is a comprehensive treatment program for adults and adolescents struggling with substance abuse. The ROSC approach casts a wide net of recovery—why not throw everything there is at addiction and see what sticks?
