Comprehensive Individual Planning
An individual plan is developed with each client early on in treatment. The client is a full participant in the process and goals and objectives are based on individual needs, strengths, abilities, and preferences. Goals are stated in the client’s own language, and the client has open access to the individual plan upon request.
Individual and Group Counseling
Each client is assigned a primary therapist and case manager who are responsible for his or her coordination of care. Regular scheduled individual counseling sessions take place once to twice a week to assist client in both individual and program goals and objectives. In addition, counseling groups are held on a regular basis to utilize a therapeutic milieu that involves the client’s peers and/or family members.
Case Management
Each client’s case manager is responsible for optimization of activities of daily living, assisting with program integration, assisting with accessing resources within the community, client advocacy, and social and relationship skills building.
Invicta Recovery Center strongly believes individual recovery success depends on deploying mindfulness in tandem with evidence-based therapeutic modalities. Mindfulness requires our clients to be aware of their emotions, including negative feelings. Establishing healthy emotional awareness is crucial to our clients’ recovery.
Psychosocial Education
Psychosocial education in both individual and group formats are provided to assist with such program goals as increased self-care, interpersonal relations, role performance, self-management of education, and communication skills.
Leisure Skill Building and Activities
Structured and informal opportunities are provided through leisure activities and development of client educational activities while participating in Invicta Recovery’s treatment and programming. Clients participate in educational development of life skills, education on wellness and recovery, development of a social support network, and medication education. Skill development is encouraged to increase positive self-image and personal dignity.
Health and Wellness
Educational groups and activities are provided to assist clients in increasing their physical health and wellness. These groups and activities exercise music therapy, nutritional education, yoga, and meditation classes.
Educational Programming
Educational activities and referral services are provided to support increased life functioning and quality of life. Invicta Recovery’s counselors assist clients with educational career support and counseling, including local College enrollment planning upon discharge from residential treatment.
Progress Reviews and Individual Plan Reformulation
Regular scheduled meetings are held with each client to review the progress of their individual goals and update and/ or revise the individual plan.
Discharge Planning and Criteria
Discharge planning occurs throughout all phases of the program beginning at admission. The person served has met discharge criteria when the goals of the individual treatment plan are achieved and referral to support services is completed, when appropriate.
Continuum of Care
Invicta Recovery Center’s commitment to long-term care includes ensuring that our clients and their families stay connected with us and receive support through whatever season of life might come next. We champion lifelong connections as the best way to sustain and further each person’s growth. Invicta Recovery Center’s outpatient program is purposefully and strategically structured to provide continuing care to those who have successfully completed a detox or residential, inpatient treatment program. Transitioning from full time recovery to a program compatible with life, work and family is challenging and takes commitment. Studies show that only 20% of people who transition from residential care without continuing care will remain sober after one year. Adding an effective outpatient program and continuum of care can increase the abstinence rate by 50%![1]
