Treatment and Staff
Dr. Paul’s takes a multi-level approach to treatment, integrating Behavior Modification, therapy, education and medication management to cover all the bases of addiction and treatment. In order to do this, clients must first participate an initial evaluation and assessment to give the counselors a better understating of their needs and to develop an individualized treatment plan that caters to those needs. Plans are then reviewed every 90 days to ensure that clients are progressing and their recovery needs are still being met.
Treatment plans typically consist of individual and group therapy, vocational rehabilitation and medication management. Individual therapy sessions are scheduled independently, while group sessions are scheduled several times throughout the week. Therapy incorporates both CBT and DBT methodology.
The 12-steps are not included in the program, but clients can be referred to local chapters if requested.
The faith-based Grace Track incorporates intensive counseling with studying the Life Recovery Bible as a recovery text. In addition to the 12-step framework, participants attend group sessions led by a Christian counselor, weekly one-on-one sessions, chaperoned transport to church services every Sunday as well as taking part in a specialized ministry called “The Effect.” Recovery aims to help clients develop humility, honesty and grace.
