The Next Door for Women offers affordable treatment for women who suffer from substance abuse and co-occurring mental health issues. Located in Nashville, Tennessee, the Christian-based treatment facility aims to help women get their lives back on track without having to pay an arm and a leg. Through the 12 steps, meditation, prayer and intensive therapy, women are able to gain a foothold on the path to sobriety.
Accommodations and Food
The 20-bed treatment facility was converted from an office space. Each client is assigned a roommate, with whom they share a modest bedroom and bath. The rooms each have two twin beds and dressers. A common room is available for TV watching and relaxing during free time. The facility also includes several therapy rooms and a dining room.
While this facility does not offer enticing amenities such as a tennis court or gym, residents can participate in physical activity led by a fitness instructor once a week. From yoga to aerobics, clients can build endurance and release some endorphins. Those who wish to get outdoors are welcome to take walks around the building during free time or smoke in the designated smoking area.
Meals are served cafeteria style and include a range of options designed to provide nutrition and energy. Clients should not expect much when it comes to food but won’t go hungry.
Treatment helps residents build a strong physical, mental, spiritual and emotional foundation for their new sober life. A medically monitored, on-site detox is available, typically lasting from three to seven days and costing $600 per day. As women make their way through the 30-day program, they are able to understand the disease of addiction as well as the specific reasons behind their substance abuse. In addition to treating drug and alcohol addiction, the program also focuses on co-occurring mental illnesses.
Clients receive psychiatric evaluations, individual therapy once a week, several hours of group therapy per day, educational lectures, family therapy and 12-step work. Groups focus on a variety of topics, ranging from relapse prevention to trauma to life skills to processing. Evidence-based therapy modalities such as CBT and DBT are used during group and individual sessions.
The 12 steps are an essential part of recovery at The Next Door. However, clients are not forced into a particular faith or way of viewing a Higher Power. By attending various on-site AA and NA meetings, clients can discover a like-minded community.
In addition to residential treatment, Next Door offers a variety of outpatient programs. The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is held five times a week for five hours while the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) meets four times week for three hours a day. The outpatient program offers the lowest level of care with less then five hours per week. These programs follow a similar structure to residential treatment in terms of groups, individual sessions and educational lectures.
The Next Door for Women provides a safe haven for women who wish to stop their substance abuse. Comparatively inexpensive, this program offers an affordable facility in a world of pricey rehabs and can help those who have few other options.
