TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Liberty Place Recovery Center for Women strives to help its residents lead productive, sober, and stable lives. The program model revolves around the concepts of peer support, job responsibilities, daily life skills training, and coping with challenges to sober living.
The process for potential clients starts with a telephone screening to determine if they are an appropriate fit. The facility does not provide information on whether it provides detoxification services or if individuals should detox before entering the program.
The foundation of treatment is the 12-Steps, and programming has five major components. In Safe Off the Street (SOS), participants consider the first step of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)/Narcotics Anonymous (NA), which is to confront their addiction and own up to it; for this phase, women reside in a 16-bed dormitory.
Next, in the Motivational Track (MT1), they begin working the steps while attending educational classes, completing homework assignments, beginning to “trudge,” defined as showing “a motivation to recovery,” and making their way to off-site meetings.
In Motivational Track 2 (MT2), participants move into transitional housing, continue trudging, and, if they have resources, begin paying 30 percent of income for maintenance. Incentives are given to reward and encourage a willingness to change.
Next, in Phase I, clients continue with 12-step teachings and AA meetings, as well as participate in the on-site community and facility upkeep. Clients assist with gardening, laundry, kitchen, security duties, and other chores. In Phase II, as clients near completion of the program, they receive assistance in obtaining employment, and have the option of becoming a peer mentor to others in the program. Gradually, they receive overnight and weekend privileges, and eventually move off-site.
