Woodlake Addiction Recovery: Treatments, Programs, and Staff

Before the admission into WAR’s program, all clients must undergo an initial evaluation. This way the staff determines the best level of treatment for each client. The detox process usually lasts for four to seven days, with a constant medical supervision and support.

Medications are administered to prevent severe withdrawal symptoms and make the entire process easier. After the clients are physically stable, the residential treatment may begin.

The residential/inpatient program usually lasts from 28 to 45 days. It includes four phases:

  • Phase one – Breaking through denial: Residents accept their issues with addiction with the help of education on the disease model of addiction, group, and individual therapy, sober life skills, 12-step educational groups, meetings and physical activities.
  • Phase two – Embracing the Brokenness and Correlating Sorrow by performing therapeutic assignments. This way decision making, judgment and impulse control are improved.
  • Phase three – Mold ability: spiritual foundation of recovery
  • Phase four – Identification: preparing for discharge by creating post-treatment plans which in some cases may include stepping down to outpatient care.

Woodlake’s Intensive Outpatient Program is intended for those who are new to recovery, completed Woodlake’s inpatient program, or have relapsed. An evaluation and assessments are performed in order to develop a treatment plan to suit every individual’s needs. The outpatient program allows the clients to maintain their work, school or home responsibilities while attending group psychotherapies with individual and family sessions as needed.

The program encompasses group sessions on various topics: the distance concept, family dynamics, the 12 steps recovery, spirituality, relapse prevention, ongoing recovery and integration into daily life. Patients completing Woodlake’s IOP are provided with free Continuing/After care for one year.

The staff at Woodlake includes an experienced team of physicians, round the clock nurses, psychiatrists, Ph.D. Social Worker/Therapist, master’s degree counselors, and an inclusive technical staff. This group of people works together with the goal of providing the necessary therapy and treatment, which will help the clients with their current situation but will also prepare them for future challenges.
