Everyone’s journey is different. There are over 21 million Americans that have struggled with addiction at some point in their life. Each person has their own story and their journey, and Stairway Resource Center provides tailored outpatient programs to meet the needs of unique individuals in recovery.
Substance abuse recovery outpatient programs provide different components of treatment that are vital to long-term success such as therapy, twelve-step integration, and case management. This helps individuals succeed in treatment and beyond.
Our long-term outpatient programs in California are focused on genuine, long-term care. At Stairway Resource Center, we understand that recovery can be a long process and that every individual is unique. Our programming is tailored to be personalized to fit the needs of the individual, not the needs of the program.
The Stairway Resource Center team has the experience and tools necessary to treat individuals who have not been able to see success in shorter-term treatment options. We understand that successfully treating addiction starts with understanding that it is complex, and our goal is to provide progress-based treatment that measures success in benchmarks, not days.
Stairway Resource Center provides a variety of different outpatient treatment therapies and programming to foster a healthy recovery environment. Our therapies and programming provide those in recovery with the support and tools they need for lasting sobriety.
At Stairway Resource Center, we use both individual and group therapy services to provide a full scope of care. We work to help individuals understand that substance abuse is a powerful physical and mental condition that can alter the way you think, react, and approach your entire life. This is why we provide both cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
CBT helps an individual learn healthy problem-solving strategies and increase self-awareness. This therapy focuses on turning irrational, toxic thoughts into positive ideas to help get through difficult situations.
DBT is another type of therapy that helps individuals take control of their emotions to aid in reacting rationally when situations are difficult, learn to accept their feelings, and process that they are genuine. This helps a person accept their addictive habits, realize it is not an isolated experience, and gain the tools to see that recovery is possible.
The 12-step program has long been used to help individuals seeking long-term recovery from alcohol and substance dependence. It is helpful to understand that the 12-step program is not about religion, it is about spirituality. 12-step immersion programs are meant to focus on aspects of spirituality such as openness, honesty, and a willingness to try, which helps those in recovery to realize and understand that their situation is not an isolated experience.
Depression is a common symptom associated with withdrawal from alcohol and other dependent substances. TMS therapy is a non-invasive procedure that has shown positive results in treating serious depression. TMS works by targeting the parts of the brain that are responsible for mood control and depression. The stimulation from the electromagnetic coil is believed to activate parts of the brain that could be underperforming which could be a cause of depression.
Neurofeedback, also known as neurotherapy, is a form of therapy that focuses on assessing a person’s brain wave activity. This type of therapy is designed to help individuals learn how they can change their brain’s activity to improve their ability to self-regulate via a safe, non-invasive method of addiction treatment. Seeing brain patterns and understanding why thoughts are processed the way they are, helps individuals to respond better in situations that are stressful or inspire heightened emotions.
We provide therapy programming options for couples as well as families as a whole. While addiction can feel like an isolating experience, it often impacts those around you that care about you the most. Family members can learn through therapy that they are not alone and that many families have struggled with addiction and recovery. It helps the family better understand the individual and what they have gone through. Gaining healthy support through family members can help individuals stay on the road to recovery.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing and Comprehensive Resource Model are both types of therapy that have been shown to help individuals in recovery. Both therapy types use bi-lateral stimulation that has shown to help with the processing of emotions, as well as the nervous system and body. This therapy often uses different techniques such as lighting, music, vibrating mallets, or tapping that is meant to stimulate the right then left brain in sequence. This stimulation helps to add to feelings of safety and security within yourself.
Substance abuse can create a variety of legal issues for those in recovery. There is no guarantee that rehab will help with legal issues, but there are instances where being actively involved in rehab can help those facing problems within the court system. Actively participating in rehab can demonstrate a person’s desire to have a better life, and the active steps they are taking to achieve that better life. Individuals may be able to access resources to address their legal issues while in outpatient treatment.
Focusing on physical health can help make improvements to mental health as well. We provide programming designed to help individuals learn how to properly care for their bodies. Addiction often creates numerous unhealthy habits such as eating poorly, skipping meals, and generally showing no real care for their body. A healthy diet in combination with fitness activities like yoga can help an individual be mindful of their body and mind while also releasing feel-good chemicals the natural way.
Art therapy incorporates different creative mediums such as drawing, coloring, painting, sculpting, and other artistic endeavors to help individuals move through their journey to recovery. Physical, hands-on activity can provide an interactive opportunity that allows for a safer environment for people to open up. This can be especially helpful for those who have experienced deep emotions and hurtful trauma that is difficult to express directly. Art provides a different means to be expressive and true to the emotions involved in recovery.
Stairway Resource Center provides aftercare planning to help those in outpatient therapy programs understand what relapse is and how to prevent it. Learning these tips and tools while in treatment can make implementing them in a high-pressure moment easier. We work with individuals to understand their unique triggers, thought patterns, and other risks. We also provide methods of redirecting thinking, focusing on positives, and preventing relapse from taking place. Knowing how to cope when tempting situations arise can help individuals recover and plan for their long-term success.
The Alumni Program provides a support network for those who have completed their rehab treatment. This helps connect individuals with a larger support network than just the individuals they were in the program with. The Alumni Program offers several opportunities such as special programming, workshops, social outings, and more. Connecting with these groups helps to remind individuals that they are never alone in this journey.
