Accommodations and Food
Therapeutic Shelter accommodates clients in a home-like setting. Clients share gender-specific double-occupancy rooms with shared bathrooms, closets and storage space. Common areas include a living room with cable TV, a dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. Additionally, there are therapy rooms and staff offices in a small adjacent building. Food is typical American-fare.
Treatment and Staff
Therapeutic Shelter is a short-term program that offers housing for men and women typically lasting for one week to 30 days, making it ideal for those who are transitioning from a more intensive recovery program or those wishing to bridge the gap between long-term treatment and an outpatient program. Case management and treatment services are available through the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP).
Before clients are admitted, they must participate in an evaluation and assessment to determine the level of care needed and to develop an individualized treatment plan. Treatment may consist of any or all of the following services provided: self-help meetings, 12-step meetings, group therapy, educational groups and family involvement. The self-help and 12-step meetings are scheduled on-site daily. Those participating in the PHP attend group therapy twice a day, an educational group session once a day and family therapy sessions as often as three times a week. Staff utilize CBT, and referrals to community resources are made available for those requiring more intensive treatment, including support for co-occurring disorders.
Wellmore Behavioral Health also offers a transitional house for recovering men called Morris House and a residential program for women and children requiring a minimum stay of three months. Additionally, outpatient services for both adults and children are available, as well as intensive home-based services and intervention and prevention programs.
The Therapeutic Shelter offered by Wellmore Behavioral Health is likely a good choice for individuals seeking a transitional housing program that combines case management and PHP level treatment services. Through evidence-based therapies, and encouragement to attend outside support groups, clients are given support for a particularly vulnerable time in substance abuse recovery.
