Treatment and Staff
Clients who are in need of detox are able to be accommodated prior to entering into the residential program. Treatment is provided in separate living facilities and, depending on the substance they’re detoxing from, can last between three and seven days. Clients are monitored 24 hours a day by a medical team who provides the latest in cutting edge therapies and medications to ensure a comfortable and safe detox experience.
Treatment tracks last between 30 and 90 days depending on the clients needs. With the exception of the weekends, clients wake up around 7 am and begin their day with medications if needed and from there launch into a well regulated and balanced day of treatment. There are at least three group sessions per day, which includes process and meditation groups, anger management, matrix groups and psychoeducation. There are also regular individual sessions scheduled during the week. Treatment takes place both on site and at MFI’s own primary care facility, which is also where all medical issues are addressed.
Programming uses the science based approach of The Matrix Model, behavior modification methods, CBT and on-site AA and NA meetings. Clients also work on coping and life skills, parenting skills, and receive ample relapse prevention techniques.
The staff at Mt. Rubidoux is comprised of Master’s-level therapists, LCSWs, addiction specialists, physicians and nurses.
There are weekly fun sober things every Friday evening where clients attend a movie, go bowling or BBQ at their residence. Additionally, clients are provided with a gym membership for the duration of their treatment.
There are family and couples therapy options along with aftercare planning throughout the program, which can also include a sober living.
