Shadow Mountain Recovery announces new four tier treatment program, including life skills development, transitional living and sober living on campus in Taos, NM and in Denver, CO.
Taos, NM -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/17/2013 -- Shadow Mountain Recovery recently announced a restructuring of it’s 9-12 month extended care drug rehab program for young men. The program has been organized into four 90-day customized treatment options for new residents. SMR has developed this new programming to meet the needs of each young man seeking treatment. Robb & Debb Holub, Founders and Owners of Shadow Mountain expressed the purpose behind the change. “We want to make sure we offer a solution that fits and provides credit for recovery work already done. We can now address the individual needs of each young man looking for extended care treatment. Whether they have been at a primary drug treatment center for 30 days, or a wilderness program for 60, we are offering the opportunity to meet them where they are in their recovery journey. New residents now have the opportunity to start in Level 2 or 3 depending on the initial assessment.”
The first phase of the extended care program focuses on life skills development. Each newly admitted resident will go through a 2-week assessment period after arriving at SMR. The 90 day level one program includes 48 individual and group therapy sessions as well as daily attendance at 12 step meetings. Community service and outreach are incorporated in phase one along with weekly family communication and a family workshop.
In Level 2 of the program, personal finance management training is offered along with incorporation and installment of recovery skills for sober living and practical use of the tools learned in primary treatment. Education opportunities are also available including Continuing Education College Credit courses w/ University of New Mexico Taos or other college online courses available including completion of high school. All courses are provided on the SMR campus in Taos.
Level 3 of the Shadow Mountain Recovery program focuses on job acquisition skills, career assessment, with career consultation and life coaching. Weekly relapse prevention groups and nightly peer group meetings help residents maintain sobriety. The Taos Campus Sober Living includes twenty-four hour oversight and the random drug and alcohol testing found in all phases of the program. Level three residents work at jobs in Taos and participate as mentors on the SMR campus, leading by example.
Level four of the program is sober living in Denver. The Denver sober living house has five private bedrooms with access to many amenities in the community. The structured sober living offers individual therapy twice a month off site and weekly one on one meetings at the home with a certified addictions counselor. Recreational outings and life skills training are built-in to the structured sober living program as well. The sober living home encourages mind and body focus, through nutrition, meditation, and creativity and 12 step participation.
