Most adolescents and many adults admit to being resistant to treatment. Some particularly dislike the idea of residential care. That’s why the staff works closely with clients in those first few days to help them get acclimated to the program and adjust to the treatment setting. We really focus on the “Stages of Change” process. First and foremost, we encourage participation. Once we get clients to engage, we work with them to help them become more aware of their behavior and start to look at themselves. We aim to help them recognize what’s really going on and how they can make changes to become better. It’s a process of building people up until they realize that they have the power to find wholeness, and recovery can be theirs.
