Accommodations and Food
Clients are accommodated in one of two treatment facilities in an urban neighborhood of Bismarck. Men and women reside in separate gender specific buildings typically with 12 to 16 residents in treatment at one time. Clients are housed dorm-style, usually six per large room with a one shared bathroom for each dorm. Each building also has multiple common areas for TV and recreation as well as outdoor spaces that feature a volleyball court and areas for playing horse shoes.
Each facility has a fully-equipped kitchen and while clients receive a catered lunch each day, they are responsible for preparing their own breakfasts and dinners. Staff members do weekly shopping runs and clients can request special items.
After residents complete an initial 10-day stabilization period, they’re allowed cell phones and computers for personal use.
Treatment and Staff
The average stay in New Freedom’s residential program is four to six weeks. After admission, a client receives an individualized treatment plan that includes daily group and individual therapy. Group sessions addresses the disease of addiction, relapse prevention and life skills.
Group therapy uses Motivational Interviewing (MI) and CBT and DBT and groups don’t exceed 12 participants. Groups are led by LACs. While counselors can address co-occurring disorders, New Freedom transports clients to nearby hospitals and mental health clinics for medication and therapy for dual diagnosis support.
Residents are required to attend at least four 12-step meetings each week. New Freedom hosts several on-site and also transports clients to ones in the community.
Families can visit residents on evenings and weekends with staff approval. Families who wish to take an active role in their loved one’s recovery can also enroll in New Freedom’s family program.
For aftercare, some clients may choose to attend New Freedom’s outpatient treatment programs. Others can attend a weekly relapse prevention group for three months.
