Or do you ever?Have not had an experience of running a treatment center before theres things that I must juggle with on the daily basis.For one:employees and contractors and their and mine expectations,pay and letting someone go,all this is really can get very cumbersome …and it will only if I let it get to me .But if I look at all things as what is in it the best for my clients and my business and most cost-effective then i stay centered and calm and ready to move on.
In the end the ultimate goal in our rehab center is to get the clients to the other side.I am to start implementing the aftercare program with video-skyping and shutterfly alumni section in the site.
Did the Akron program work? You bet it did. Alcoholics Anonymous in Akron achieved a documented, 75% success rate among the “seemingly-hopeless,” “medically-incurable” alcoholics who really tried. That success was primarily among Akron A.A. members. And the fact that they had been cured by the power of God was widely publicized across America. Soon, Dr. Bob’s sponsee, Clarence S., brought the Akron program to Cleveland and achieved a documented, 93% success rate in Cleveland.
Seems we went from 0 to 100 in 2 weeks! We’ve been licensed for a month and we have to look at acquiring another van, more living quarters and additional staff! The clients are great. They’re thriving on our 12 step big book format combined with an array of Holistic-based therapies (massage, acupuncture, yoga, nutrition and supervised exercise. Clients have a picnic on the beach and the atmosphere and environment has been a true joy to be a part of! Many thanks to our staff at INTO ACTION TREATMENT, a dedicated and compassionate group of All-Stars!!
You only get one opportunity to sit down with your clients and get up close and personal enough to ask them questions relating to where they are in their life. The series of breakthroughs we want for them create waves in our own lives; I experience this every day. We have just concluded two weeks of treatment and most of our clients have sponsors and are working the steps. My role is to push them to persevere in writing a thorough fearless moral inventory and give them a swift kick to stay on it. Motivational interviewing is good for a short while, like an Anthony Robbins event. You get psyched and are on top of the world, but unless you move forward with action, the excitement evaporates. That is what happens most of the time.
Here at Into Action Treatment, we consider ourselves to be that gym where you jump in and lift weights, not walk in to shoot the breeze!
