In accordance with the American Society of Addiction Medicine, we believe alcohol and other drug treatment should be tailored to the needs of the individual and guided by an individualized treatment plan that is developed in consultation with the client. At The Recovery Café, the treatment plan we create with the client will be based on a comprehensive bio-psycho-social assessment, and when possible, an evaluation of the family is also conducted. For this reason, we do not offer a "one size fits all" treatment approach.
We accept the notion that individuals seeking counseling for problematic substance use and dependence are at various stages in the change process and need to work at their own pace as they develop competency in new behaviors. Our goal is to provide a supportive and encouraging environment where this can be accomplished. We utilize a primarily humanistic and client-centered harm-reduction approach, coupled with innovative and evidence-based counseling and treatment practices, such as motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy.
We believe that by meeting the client where they are and working with them to reduce the discomfort and risk they are experiencing, we are granted an opportunity and privilege. We accept our role as expert witnesses to the decisions our clients make about their lives. We give feedback, counseling, and coaching as permitted and appropriate with the goal of assisting them in achieving their targeted behavior change.
