If you are currently having an issue with drug or alcohol abuse and you are seeking a treatment program to receive help with recovery: congratulations on this big step! Becoming ready to look for treatment and proactive in finding it is a courageous step, but keep in mind that you do not have to be alone during the recovery process. NorthStar Transitions is a sober living facility located in Boulder, CO and has treatment programs that are tailored for each individual that comes to stay with them. They have two main programs that you can start off by selecting, and then they will begin the process of customizing your drug treatment recovery program to your specific needs. This will look primarily at their program called New Vision Track.
The New Vision Track at NorthStar is a unique program that is created and geared specifically towards patients that have never been to a rehabilitation facility for treatment and they do not want to go at all, or for patients that have been to rehabilitation several times but continue to have issues and relapse after they leave treatment. NorthStar will travel to the potential patient at wherever their location may be and even if they are currently still using, they will work with that person to begin to have a dialogue with them about what they are doing to themselves and the risks that are involved as well as how what they are doing to themselves affects their loved ones.
The ultimate goal of this dialogue between the individual and the NorthStar therapist is to get that person into a treatment program, but that may not be an immediate result. The life coach will work with the individual over 1 to 6 months and will utilize Motivational interviewing to establish a relationship and focus on small steps at first, as well as long term planning for what that person wants in their life.
If at the end of the sessions with the Life coach an individual does not want to go into a residential treatment program, they can also opt for trying to achieve sobriety through a medication program that will be set in place with the help of the life coach. this typically involves the use of medications such as Suboxone or Antibuse, both of which are proven effective in helping achieve abstinence.
This programs is built for young men and women ages 18 to 35. They must be willing to seek help, even if they are still currently using drugs or alcohol and do not want to try to achieve sobriety by using a residential treatment program. This program will be a good fit for these types of people since they can stay in their own housing or seek their own housing near NorthStar, but they will not be living at the NorthStar center.
There are many different types of treatment programs that are built to help people in all kinds of situations achieve sobriety. To find the one that works for you check out www.northstartransitions.com.
