Located in New Zealand, Red Door Recovery offers individualized, holistic treatment for substance abuse, with an emphasis on methamphetamines. While there are both residential and outpatient options available, the inpatient program is very small and has a two-to-one staff-to-client ratio. Treatment consists of a variety of approaches and includes relapse prevention, along with at least two years of follow up online aftercare support.
Accommodations and Food
Clients who partake in the residential program stay at what is referred to as the “ranch,” which is quiet and secluded, 40 minutes away from the Wellington Railway Station. There are only four clients in the residential program. Each resident has their own bedroom and ensuite bathroom. The rooms are fully furnished and have queen sized beds and plenty of storage space. There is also a large living room with couches and TV, a dining room and a kitchen. Clients can also use an on-site gym. The ranch is set on several acres and is surrounded by a stream and gardens. All food is included and meals are prepared by on-site chefs.
The residential program offers two levels of care, and clients can select the appropriate one based on the cost and need. The Total Care Programme is four week and includes all meals, activities, therapy, yoga, transportation and coaching. The Immersion Programme is a three week treatment that offers the essentials, like meals, counseling and coaching, at a reduced rate. Should a client need detox, referrals to the necessary physicians or facilities can be made prior to beginning treatment.
There are daily counseling sessions and clients are given personal discovery assignments. Clients partake in regular educational presentations, nutritional counseling, peer support and work closely with their therapist to set goals for treatment and beyond. Treatment includes CBT and mindfulness approaches, and clients have regular wellness coaching sessions, exercise and recreational activities. There are also life skills classes and groups that focus on navigating life in sobriety.
Essentially Red Door Recovery is a two year program because of the extended aftercare, which entails an online alumni group and a crisis buddy who is available around the clock. An additional option for residential treatment is the Reboot Program, which is designed for clients who have been sober for three months and need a little pick me up. This program mainly focuses on relapse prevention.
Red Door Recovery offers different levels of inpatient care followed up several months of aftercare during which clients can communicate with their counselors and peers as they make their way through the beginning steps of sobriety. It’s a caring community of professionals and a valuable asset to the Wellington community at large. Those seeking resources for recovery in the area would to well to explore care here.
