Program Description:

Advanced Recovery Center is committed to treating highly complex patients in an extended residential setting.

Introducing the Long Term Care Program at ARC

Substance Abuse Treatment
The long term drug and alcohol treatment program at Advanced Recovery Center involves making a transition from confusion, frustration, and hopelessness to serenity, sobriety, joyfulness, and purpose.Some individuals come to ARC as the result of the cycle of relapse, while others may find that they need a haven of safety and support where they can resume or continue their therapeutic journey toward wellness. This is often a necessary process for patients who have completed an intensive primary phase of treatment for addiction and psychiatric issues. It allows the individual to develop a sense of autonomy at their own pace without the fear of being overwhelmed by an immediate return to their home environment. Many factors combine to make Advanced Recovery Center a unique experience along this road to recovery.

The Treatment Center

Most individuals leave primary treatment programs highly motivated to succeed. Unfortunately, many encounter emotional or psychological obstacles that interfere with their continued long term recovery. As a comprehensive long term treatment program, Advanced Recovery Center has been created to meet the needs of these individuals.

Almost all of ARC clients have had at least one primary care experience. Typically, our patients diagnosed with co-occuring psychological conditions. Most have a history of chronic relapse and frequently have other complicating emotional issues that require intervention. The treatment program is design to address critical, unresolved issues that are likely to lead to chronic relapse. In addition to reinforcing the foundations of recovery, ARC’s multi-dimensional clinical strategies improve ones chances for long term recovery and a significantly enhanced quality of life. We are widely recognized for providing treatment for patients that have had a history of trauma and/or have been diagnosed with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.

Patients are transported from our supervised living quarters to a professional office environment where the clinical program is conducted. Our 7700 square foot center offers an ideal setting for a full treatment experience. In addition to private therapists' offices and large and small group rooms, the center also has a kitchen and eating area, an infirmary, and a comfortable seating area for clients to relax.

Advanced Recovery Center provides treatment for individuals with co-occurring disorders in an intimate and attractive setting. Expert clinicians utilize their professional training, personal experiences, and clinical skills to assure cohesive and compassionate treatment. Quality of care is not hindered by a cumbersome corporate structure; rather, ARC is able to quickly accommodate special patient needs without any delay.

All clients complete an initial assessment overview just prior to admission before a determination is made as to whether or not ARC is the right program to meet their needs. Documentation may be requested from prior treatment programs that the patient has participated in, as well as input from therapists and physicians under whose care the client has been.

The progress of each client is evaluated each morning by the clinical staff. Treatment is then adjusted by the entire clinical team accordingly to accommodate individual and/or special needs. At ARC, individual treatment planning is not an abstract concept but a concrete reality, which is recognized and appreciated by our clients. ARC clients have access to a full spectrum of clinical staff including a medical doctor specializing in addiction, psychiatrists psychologists, addiction specialists, and therapists.

Treatment Program for the family
Advanced Recovery Center firmly believes family members need to be actively involved in the treatment process. Every attempt is made to include family members in the treatment planning process when it is appropriate, including family sessions. Family members are strongly encouraged to attend at least one 4-day family program during the time the patient is at ARC and to have the opportunity to attend the program every 6 weeks. The groups are specifically designed for the clients and their families to participate in together, and combine education with the therapeutic process to help promote understanding of the impact of addiction on the family system. The goal is to begin to rebuild relationships with healthy boundaries that support the recovery process.

Treatment in Three Phases
The clinical continuum of care is divided into three phases. The average length of stay in each of the phases is dependant on each client's individual needs and treatment recommendations. Patients are expected to complete the three phases in sequence. The minimum length of stay is three months, however some clients stay for as long as a year or more.

Phase I is a full time structured treatment phase designed to complement and enhance the therapeutic gains the client has made in their primary treatment experience. The length of stay in phase one is usually six to ten weeks and is followed by phase two.

Phase II is the level of care in which patients attend fewer groups and are assisted in integrating into the recovery community through part-time employment, education, or community service. In this phase, patients practice living and coping skills in “the real world”, while remaining in our structured housing.

Phase III is an option for those who have completed both phase I and II. This is a structured transitional level of care. Patients are required to have employment or attend school on a full time basis (or a combination of the two) while remaining in supervised living quarters. Patients attend weekly continuing care groups and have contact with their primary therapist as needed. The housing component remains the same for all three phases. Clients are required to make a 3-month commitment before being accepted into Phase III.

Transitional Care Program
After successfully completing all three phase's , ARC can continue to be part of your recovery. ARC now offers Recovery House's in Delray Beach to help you further on your path of sobriety. You will still live under the care and safety of ARC, but with a much greater sense of self "accountability". Contact with your Case Manager and weekly group meetings at ARC is part of the program. You will also have available to you the same Physician, Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Therapist and Staff of ARC that you have become familiar with.

Recovery Aftercare
Weekly continuing care group is provided at the center following completion of Phase II and is required for patients in Phase III. The group is facilitated by an ARC clinician, and is available at no costs indefinitely to any graduate of the ARC program. For patients returning to other communities following commencement, assistance is provided in identifying appropriate continuing care resources as part of the discharge planning process.
