Rhode Island Addiction Treatment Services

Recovery-Oriented Treatment

Each customized treatment plan is based on the comprehensive individual needs assessment at admission. We’ll re-assess the client’s program needs periodically during the treatment stay and adjust the level of care or therapies accordingly. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other therapies that have shown to be effective in addiction treatment, we’ll help the client recognize the personal choices necessary to create a life of recovery.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy, or “one-on-one” therapy, is a component of each treatment plan. Each client is assigned a primary therapist who will provide periodic individual therapy sessions. Topics will include the client’s addiction history, coping skills to address aftercare concerns, mental health issues, and other needs as determined by the client and multidisciplinary treatment team.

Group Therapy

One component of our addiction treatment is our group programming, which allows clients and staff to gather for discussions on a variety of substance abuse topics. The group setting helps to alleviate the isolation felt by many individuals who are coping with drug and alcohol problems. These addiction therapy groups help to educate and inform clients on substance abuse topics, aftercare strategies, and assist clients in identifying individual recovery strategies that will help in aftercare.

Family Therapy

Since a family member’s substance abuse affects each member, with the client’s consent, CSRI recommends family (e.g. spouses, partners, children, and loved ones) involvement in the treatment process. Family encouragement and participation in the addiction treatment process can support the client during difficult times in the program. Through group education and support, family members can learn coping strategies to help their loved one following discharge. Family therapy sessions will be held onsite or via conference call, and frequency will be determined according to the client’s individualized treatment plan.

Family Participation & Support

CSRI also offers a support group for family members, spouses/partners, and other individuals important to the client’s recovery. This group provides the opportunity for family members to share their stories of struggle and inspiration, increase their understanding of addiction behaviors, and discuss aftercare strategies.

12-Step Involvement

In addition to their scheduled IOP treatment programming, therapies, and groups at CSRI, clients are expected to attend Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings while in treatment. “90 meetings in 90 days” is recommended to achieve the experience of working the steps and being a part of the fellowships.

Client Treatment Workbook

Clients participating in the IOP are expected to complete assigned homework exercises in our IOP program workbook. The program workbook contains recovery and abstinence exercises to create self-awareness about substance abuse, individual triggers, and avoiding relapse. Assignments include completing exercises such as:

  • Client personal chemical use history
  • First Step Study to be presented to peers for group process
  • Assignments specific to the client’s individual issues/needs

Intervention Planning

Admitting you are struggling with drugs or alcohol is difficult. When a member of your family or loved one is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, it’s difficult to talk about entering a treatment program. In addition, denial may be a major deterrent to recovery. It often takes the encouragement of loved ones, led by an intervention specialist, to help them get the help they need. Often to help our loved ones get the treatment they need, interventions may be necessary.

Planning an intervention can be difficult, and a CSRI intervention specialist professional can help the client’s family participate in an intervention experience that outlines a descriptive plan with options that are agreed upon with the client. Our therapists will guide the intervention discussion around the circumstances of your loved one’s substance abuse and formulate a plan that works best for everyone.

With the combined efforts of the client’s family and the CSRI team, we can create an effective and individualized plan to help your loved one realize that now is the time to get help for the dangerous, progressive disease of addiction.
