The Desert Cove Extended Care Treatment Program
Since not every addiction is the same, why should every addiction care program be the same? Sometimes, a long-term stay is recommended. This will be determined by you, your progress, and the recommendations of your clinical team. The type of extended care is also unique. For example, some may need or want additional help to focus on individual physical health and body issues, while continuing to participate in group therapies. Others may simply feel “not ready” to reenter their previous lives and would like to stay in the program longer to receive that additional support the Desert Cove Recovery Center provides.
What to expect in Extended Care:
- Individual Therapy Sessions: Working with a therapist one-on-one will help you to understand and fully incorporate the treatments you learn in your extended care stay. This time meeting with your therapist for individual sessions is integral for you to fully embrace the new you and grow as an individual.
- Small Group Therapy Sessions: Group therapy sessions allow you to work with a gender specific small group as well as groups within the whole community. Small group therapy sessions offer you support from a small group to practice and share the work you have already done. This will help you to feel supported by not only your individual therapist, but also your peers and allow for time for you to share what you have already done, and what you hope to do.
- Relapse Prevention: Your extended care program at Desert Cove Recovery includes a specialized course that specifically focuses on relapse prevention. During your relapse care and prevention program, you will learn to make a connection to your body, mind and spirit by applying the 12-step principles in all aspects of the life you will be returning to.
- Transition Process: As you prepare to leave extended care, you may feel overwhelmed at the prospect of going out on your own. However, one of our aftercare therapists will meet with you to help coordinate life after Desert Cove Recovery Center, including Desert Cove After-Care and sober living options.
