Our programs are highly structured. We do everything we do with care and concern for you and for what you are trying to achieve. We believe in a comprehensive and holistic approach designed to encourage and help effect positive changes. Ultimately, however, you are responsible for your own recovery. We can help in this process if you participate fully in the program and follow rules designed to change the behaviors that led to your addiction.
As a CRASH Participant, you will attend individual and group counseling sessions along with a plethora of educational groups and problem-solving exercises. Encounter groups, family support groups, and LGBTQI support groups, along with educational groups on such topics as smoking cessation, family dynamics, and relapse prevention will help you to learn more about yourself and your addiction. You will learn how to think about the choices you make before you make them.
As an integral part of the CRASH community, you will take part in household operations and do chores like helping to prepare meals, cleaning your room, and doing laundry. As you progress in your recovery, you may be called upon to provide support to your newer peers in the program – to help them over that initial hump you went through when you first arrived at CRASH. We believe all of these things are essential to the goal of helping you to become a more responsible person.
We will help you to access health-care services, reconnect with family, and find housing. With diversions like softball, basketball, a day at the beach, or a night at the movies, you may even find yourself having fun without getting high!
