Treatment and Staff
Residential care usually lasts between one and three months, with the exact length dependent on the client’s individualized treatment plan. All programs begins with an assessment, followed by detox for those who need it. Heartland is an abstinence-based program so Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is used exclusively on a short-term basis during. Clients typically remain in detox for up to a week, then transition to the residential program and a regular treatment schedule. Clients on medication are monitored and assessed by a psychiatrist.
All residents participate in group therapy and educational sessions. Groups are scheduled daily and individual therapy appointments commence twice a week. Group discussions focus on resolving trauma, anger management, coping skills and relapse prevention. Lectures educate clients about the physical impact of addiction and the cycle of addictive behavior. Counselors are trained in CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). The 12-step approach is not incorporated into daily treatment but clients who are getting ready to graduate are encouraged to attend meetings upon release.
