TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment at Gracious Care Recovery begins with a thorough clinical assessment by a licensed professional. Clients are then referred to a therapist, who will work closely with them to develop an individualized treatment plan. During treatment, clients are expected to undergo daily urine tests as a continuing assessment method.
The treatment process focuses on combining counseling with faith-based initiatives and medical practices. Clients are monitored by trained professionals with experience in the detox process, helping to ensure a safe and comfortable withdrawal.
Clients are expected to participate in Bible study and counseling throughout the treatment process. Clients work with counselors to understand the underlying factors of their addiction. Then, Biblical study and therapy methods are applied to help clients change their lifestyles. They are also encouraged to partake in regular family therapy when possible.
The partial hospitalization program (PHP) allows individuals to either live at home or at the facility in structured community housing. The program provides 24-hour support through meetings with a primary therapist, daily intensive group therapy sessions, and a combination of evidence-based and experiential therapies, such as eye movement desensitization and restoration therapy (EMDR), and art and yoga therapy among others. Topics addressed in therapy include anger management, which is commonly available in 88.4% of Florida’s facilities.
