Extended Treatment Program
Our Extended Treatment Program is focused on providing clients with a transformative, nurturing, and individualized experience designed to build the self-esteem and skill sets needed to live their “best life” possible. This is achieved through our, UHELP™ program model combined with long-term structured sober living. The minimum stay for this program is 90 days with an average length of stay ranging from 6-12 months.
While in our Extended Treatment Program clients earn responsibilities as well as privileges based on the input of the entire clinical team. Clients are supported in every way possible to become gainfully employed or enrolled in school depending on their needs and goals.
We do allow clients to have their cell phones, computers, and vehicles depending on their individual progress.
Our Outpatient Program offers many of the same benefits of our Extended Treatment Program, but in a less intensive and structured environment. Every week our Outpatient clients attend three group therapy sessions in addition to an individual session with one of our therapists for an average of eight weeks (program duration dependent on client’s progress). Clients live at home and travel to the Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center, located in Prescott Arizona.
Transitional Living at Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center
—Upscale Sober Living Home for Women in Prescott, Arizona
Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center provides recovering women with an upscale structured transitional living environment to help guide them through the next phase of the recovery process… Learning how to live sober.
This program is for women who have completed a residential treatment program who have six months of continuous sobriety and are working on improving their life skills as well as learning to use the tools needed to balance their work/life responsibilities.
Our Transitional Living program helps instill the habits of a long-term, healthy sober lifestyle by preparing them to be productive in all areas of their life.
In-House Neurofeedback and Biofeedback
Emerging from the exciting field of biofeedback, Electroencephalogram Neurofeedback, EEG, is quickly developing into one of the primary clinical tools for the treatment of neurobehavioral-based disorders.
The development of the EEG combined with the application of principles of learning, knowledge of the brain’s neuroplasticity, and principles of biofeedback and self-regulation have made it possible to detect, monitor, and change the brain’s electrical activity related to many emotional and physiological disorders.
Addictions, attention deficits, depression, grief and loss, sleep apnea, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and traumatic brain injury respond to neurofeedback through evidenced-based brainwave entrainment protocols.
EEG Neurofeedback is facilitated by trained professionals who prepare the client by attaching sensors (light adhesive) to his/her scalp, and connects the sensors to an amplifier and computer. Through these connections, the electrical activity of the brain is measured, recorded, and evaluated for its real-time performance levels of mind and body functions.
Audio-visual entrainment (AVE), Heart Rate Variability, and computer-enhanced puzzles and games are all tools used to stimulate the brain to seek higher (optimal) levels of performance and improved mental health.
Viewpoint’s comprehensive approach to treating dual diagnosis is achieved through our pioneering system, UHELP™ (Understand, Heal, Educate, Love, and Practice). Our system affords clients the ability to go beyond short term success and make true lasting change.
What does UHELP™ mean for our clients?
Accurate diagnosis, determined through our team of experts, is the foundation of our program. Equipped with the correct diagnosis we avoid unnecessary or inappropriate treatment, which only serves to frustrate those suffering as well as their loved ones. Unlike other programs, we offer a program focused on dual diagnosis rather than treating it as an afterthought. We believe that recovery from substance abuse is unrealistic without properly addressing any existing mental illness. In addition to correct diagnosis, a client’s understanding of long term challenges and realities are critical to their healing.
Once we understand the individual needs of clients, our staff then continue to address the origins of their challenges based on the most proven and current therapies available. Intensive and ongoing therapeutic work from various approaches helps individuals break through the root causes of their own issues. Therapy which specifically focuses on the issues related to mood, anxiety, and other personality disorders is highly effective and complements any current or previous treatment.
As understanding and healing progresses, underlying issues are addressed and the opportunity to provide our clients with the right tools to manage their lives (given their unique circumstances) presents itself. During this time we teach our clients: Mood Management, Healthy Relationships, Problem Solving, Self-Care, Health and Nutrition, Money Management, and Job Securement in order for them to support a sustained healthy lifestyle. Even though struggling with life skills has been proven as a significant obstacle or even cause for relapse for those in recovery, fewer than ⅓ of treatment programs teach them to their clients.
As understanding, healing and education continue, self-esteem can still be a continuing battle for those in early recovery, especially those with a dual diagnosis. As we treat our clients we have found it essential to provide love and encouragement in order to give them the confidence needed to try and practice their new tools.
Our clients are learning a new way to live, which can be very challenging. This is why we provide a long term structured and nurturing environment for our clients to grow into their new set of tools. This is a crucial component of our program, as it may take months to form new and lasting pathways in the brain. Our compassionate approach to client care affords them a unique environment in which they can learn from their mistakes. Once our clients are able to demonstrate their newly acquired tools on a consistent basis we begin to develop a plan to support continued use of these skills upon their graduation from our program. Our goal is to afford each individual a smooth transition and their “best life” possible.
